Any idea why Terry now says some of the lyrics a different way round to the original version ?

I'm sure you'll all have noticed but if not it's the "the floor gets packed, the floor gets full. I don't like life when things get dull" section of the song.

That's how Terry Originally sang it back in 1981, same as International Jet Set (The Record is at N0.1) Smile

I asked Roddy about The National Hunt line and he didn't know why Front was change to Hunt at some live shows. Roddy changed the lyrics to Concrete Jungle a few times during the last few tours, I Don't want a kick in the balls and I'm gonna get out and get stoned. he used to do that in The Original Specials Too. I wish he included I'm being chased by a couple of C**** Once for old time sake Smile

Here't the live version from 1981,
