Started with the original handbags and gladrags song, thank you for posting because the song is new as I never heard that song before now. Will listen now to the cover.

"So once you think you're in you're out
'Cause you don't mean a single thing without
The handbags and the gladrags
That your poor old Granddad had to sweat to buy you"


Liked one of the comments someone made about this song...
"In the context of the lyrics, today "handbags and gladrags" could easily be replaced with "ipods and laptops".

"It's kind of about just being grateful and realizing that you're eventually going to have to grow up too. Again, in an especially modern context, what happens to you when you piss away your parents money by getting ****faced at college for 4 years?"
