    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?"!
