The Lyrics

Right, everyone. Tuck your tracksuit bottoms into your burberry socks, put your oversized rings onto your fingers and point your burberry baseball cap into a cockeyed position - it's time to get all chav'd up! (Don't worry if you don't get it, American AmIRighters, it's a British thing. Just try and enjoy the parody)
Are you drinking alcohol underage?
Are your mum and dad on dole money or pay?
You're a charv, like all the others
You're a charv who has no clue
You're all in, to rave and smoking
You've got a 'crew', you've got a 'crew'

Charva charva charva charva charva chameleon
You're all the same, you're all the same
If you had a braincell it would suffer and die alone
Through thinking strain, through thinking strain

You have a reading age only 7 years
Now instead of trying to learn you're stealing beers
You are a charv with an addiction
You are a charv - a waste of life
You hang around with several others
All through the night, all through the night

Charva charva charva charva charva chameleon
You're underage, you're underage
Drinking would be easy if one of you were 18
You've no ID, you've no ID

Every day recieving ASBOS
You're a lowlife - not a bigshow
Every day you're in some trouble
You're whole life is in a muddle

You're a charv with bad convictions
You're a charv who's on curfew
You're a charv with bad connections
I'm speaking truth, i'm speaking truth

Charva charva charva charva charva chameleon
You're worse than scum, you're worse than scum
Loving would be easy if you only had one girlfriend
You've got a son, you've got a son

Charva charva charva charva charva chameleon
We wish you'd go, we wish you'd go
Why can't you be good and behave like the other teens?
Like seventeen? Like seventeen?

Charva charva charva charva charva chameleon
You're just a clone, you're just a clone
Looking like the others is something not hard to do
Black white and blue, black white and blue

You are correct with your introductory comment - this American has no cultural reference. Even so, you have created a vivid description of a segment of your society, and for that I give you high marks.

Pretty good, DAK....if a bit harsh. All chavs aren't crims, and it would be good to write about the lighter side of chav culture..."yeah but, no but"...544

That's because the media only focus on the 'Chavs' from the south of the country. You really need to take a trip up to the North East Kristof, and then you'll see the side of Charvs that they don't show on TV, the side I write about ni my parody. It isn't an exageration or harsh. Charvs in the North East are dicks. it's a fact

You know what, Frank Zappa wrote and recorded a song called "Charva" circa 1964 or '5 that probably has nothing whatsoever to do with this song's subject. But anyway, sounds like 'skinhead' culture without the fascism, have I estimated it correctly? Pretty good song, even though I never heard about the trend. 545

Agrimorfee - No, it has nothing to do with this parody. Charvas are all kids/teens who go around thinking they're better than everyone else when all they're doing is making themselves look like prize idiots. If you've never encountered a charva (i'm presuming you're from the US), consider yourself lucky...

In America, we just call them "dumb ass kids". Er, no...let me take that back. :)

"No, but yeah, but no because what happened was right ws this fing happened what I don't even know nuffink about. SHUT UP! " Ah, Chavs/Scallies/Scum of Britain - whatever you call them, are great for making fun of. Personally, if I was a Chav, I would invite angry mobs to stab me. 5-5-5 (And you should see the North West Chavs - they're like locusts.)
