I like Badges, Posters, Stickers and T-Shirts by Dire Straits. It's pretty much a joke song that is on an LP called Extended DancEPlay, and unless you're pretty big on the Straits then you probably won't have heard it. It's about a guy who has a very young mental age, and loves his rock music. The lyrics are pretty funny, but they sound even funier the way they are sung.

Me and my mate we think you're great
Some we like and some we hate
I know him I've seen him on the adverts
Got any badges posters stickers or t-shirts

You were bloody great last time you come
I thought me 'ead was stuck in the bass drum
Bloody loud, me bloody head hurts
Got any badges posters stickers and t-shirts

So how'd you get a start in show biz
My mate's as good on the drums as he is
My mate thinks I'm bloody cracked
Please sign my jacket on the back

All them badges made of plastic
I think they're great, just fantastic
I'm unemployed, he's still at school
He gets annoyed 'cause I'm such a fool

You don't half sweat a lot up there
Have you got showers in here?
You're bloody great, my bloody head hurts
Got any badges posters stickers and t-shirts

Yeah, me and my mate like AC-DC
Hot & sweaty, loud & greasy
My mam says we're a pair of perverts
Got any badges posters stickers and t-shirts

C'mon mister

We hitch-hiked here in pouring rain
Now we've missed the frigging train.

Hey! can I have one of them lagers?

Thanks very much, "mate". Can 'e have one?


a-one, a-two, a-one two three four...
