Pop, Pop

Colorful shirts, baggy pants
Cute, glittery headdresses
Catchy lines, pretty dances
Collection of memories, nineties faces

Children jump and sing
Along the tune of western beings
Girl groups, boy bands
Screaming pre-teens all around

No fancy bags, no messy jams
Just loud and wonderful sighs
Dreams come all alive
Around the four corners, bouncing

Turn on the radio, turn on the TV
Everyone’s facing the imaginary wall
Waiting for shows, praising fans
Young generation, all live and shout

Even after a decade
The tunes keep playing
My head stores a record
No need for a CD copy

Satisfaction was slowly met
Simple joys that gave meaning
To a young girl’s feelings
Songs, games, memories worth dreaming
