Song lyrics
Watching the people get lairy
Is not very pretty I tell thee
Walking through town is quite scary
And not very sensible either

A friend of a friend he got beaten
He looked the wrong way at a policeman
Would never have happened to Smeaton
An old Leodensian

La-ah-ah, lalala la la la
Ah-ah-ah, lalala la la la

I predict a riot, I predict a riot
I predict a riot, I predict a riot

I tried to get to my taxi
A man in a tracksuit attacked me
He said that he saw it before me
Wants to get things a bit gory

Girls scrabble around with no clothes on
To borrow a pound for a condom
If it wasn't for chip fat, they'd be frozen
They're not very sensible

La-ah-ah, lalala la la la
Ah-ah-ah, lalala la la la

I predict a riot, I predict a riot
I predict a riot, I predict a riot

And if there's anybody left in here
That doesn't want to be out there

Watching the people get lairy
Is not very pretty I tell thee
Walking through town is quite scary
And not very sensible

La-ah-ah, lalala la la la
Ah-ah-ah, lalala la la la

I predict a riot, I predict a riot
I predict a riot, I predict a riot

And if there's anybody left in here
That doesn't want to be out there

I predict a riot, I predict a riot
I predict a riot, I predict a riot

ARGH this song is annoying.. and the chorus is repetitive and lacking imagination like pretty much all kaiser chief and their twins franz ferdinand songs...

aurgh!

Everyone does this clear things up for you:

Ricky attended Leeds Grammar School, whilst at the Junior School he was in the school house Smeaton named after former pupil John Smeaton and referenced in the Kaiser Chiefs song "I Predict a Riot". John Smeaton is indeed the father of modern civil engineering.

"Thee" here is not old english, it's a Yorkshire colloquialism for you or your as in "have thee got thee hat lad?" - "have you got your hat young fellow?"!

Hi there,
When KC say:
"If it wasn't for chip fat they'd be frozen"
are they meaning
"If it wasn't for the adipose tissue of the girls (who are overweight), they'd be frozen".

I thinked "chip fat" was the oil we use to fry chips, but maybe it means "adipose tissue" too. Am I wrong

For whoever was asking about smeaton, he is an old leodiensian (someone who formerly attended Leeds Grammar School). He was a very famous engineer in his time. why not look him up under "John Smeaton" on wikipedia. P.S I know this because I go to Leeds Grammar School (the school that john smeaton and ricky wilson both attended.)
