50 Day Song Challenge – #28 A song you love because of the lyrics

davidwattsdavidwattsjamDavid Watts – The Jam 1978

Actually, this is just another excuse to mention The Kinks.  This is a real teen snarl, full of envy and descending into rude words about the perfect friend (frenemy?) (I wish I could weeeeeeeee like David Watts..)

I really like The Jam’s version of this – but you know what, I’m giving you original 1967 Kinks version too. AND Dave’s rambunctious live version from 1997.
