BOW WOW WOW – Wild In The Country

Bow Wow Wow are an English new wave band, created by manager Malcolm McLaren in 1980. McLaren recruited members of Adam and the Ants to form the band behind 13-year-old Annabella Lwin on vocals. They released their debut EP Your Cassette Pet in 1980, and had their first UK top 10 hit with “Go Wild in the Country” in 1982. The band’s music was characterized by a danceable new wave sound that drew on a Burundi beat provided by Dave Barbarossa on drums, as well as the subversive, suggestive, and sometimes exuberant lyrics sung and chanted by their teenage lead vocalist.

Top of the Pop performance from 11th March 1982

I don’t like you, I don’t like you, town
I don’t wanna like you, I’ll shop around
I don’t want you, I don’t want you, town
I don’t wanna want you, I’ll shop around, I’ll shop around

I can get a train, I don’t need no hamburgers
No take-away, I want my own game
No bacon steak, no strawberry milkshake, I wanna keep it
I’m sick of seeing signe to eat walking down these lonely streets

Wild, go wild, go wild in the country
Where snakes in the grass are absolutely free
Wild, go wild, go wild in the country
Where snakes in the grass are absolutely free

I don’t know you, I won’t know you, town
I don’t wanna know you, I’ll shop around, I’ll shop around

I can get a train, I don’t need no hamburgers
No take-away, I want my own game
No bacon steak, no strawberry milkshake
I do better, well, I do better

Sweet from the trees, nakes in the breeze
But I got no boiled chicken, I wanna go hunting and fishing

I can get a plane, I don’t need no suitcases, ‘cause truth loves to go naked

I wanna picnic, ‘cause I get sick
Got no boiled chicken, I wanna go hunting and fishing

I can get a train, I don’t need no hamburgers
No take-away, I want my own game
