​The Price

This song is by Thompson Twins and appears on the album A Product Of... (Participation) (1981).

When I was young they said to me
Don't play with electricity
I tried to follow their advice
I very nearly paid the price, yeah

Some go this way, some go others
Some are children, some are mothers
Some go this way, some go others
Some are children, some are mothers

They gave me toys told me to play
They told me every single day
Always saying what to do
Did this ever happen to you?
And if I followed her myself
There's a bottle on the shelf

Before they finished with my life
We'd all up-ed and paid the price
When I was young they said to me
Don't play with electricity
Always saying what to do
Did this ever happen to you?
