I know you're antiseptic, your deodorant smells nice



After a weekend with Doctor Who, I suppose another timeslip moment is appropriate.

Can it really be 35 years ago this week since the sadly-missed Miss Poly Styrene and X-Ray Spex took the staid old world of Top of the Pops by storm with this song?



A Germ Free Adolsecence? It certainly was for me... Unfortunately.

I know you're antiseptic
Your deodorant smells nice
I'd like to get to know you
You're deep frozen like the ice

He's a germ free adolescent
Cleanliness is her obsession
Cleans her teeth ten times a day
Scrub away, scrub away, scrub away
The S.R. way....

You may get to touch her
If your gloves are sterilised
Rinse your mouth with Listerine
Blow disinfectant in your eyes

He's a germ free adolescent
Cleanliness is her obsession
Cleans her teeth ten times a day
Scrub away, scrub away, scrub away
The S.R. way....

Her phobia is infection
She needs one to survive
It's her built-in protection
Without fear she'd give up and die

He's a germ free adolescent
Cleanliness is her obsession
Cleans her teeth ten times a day
Scrub away, scrub away, scrub away
The S.R. way....
