Lyrics

Babylon's Burning

Babylon's burning
Burning the street
You burn in your houses
With anxiety

Hey, anxiety
Babylon's burning, Babylon's burning
Hey, anxiety
Babylon's burning, Babylon's burning

Babylon's burning
Burning the street
You burn in the castles
With anxiety

Hey, anxiety
Babylon's burning, Babylon's burning
Hey, anxiety
Babylon's burning, Babylon's burning
Babylon's burning now, can't you see
Babylon's burning with anxiety

Babylon's burning
You burn as you work
This concrete smokescreen 
With ignorance and hate

Hey, anxiety
Babylon's burning, Babylon's burning
Hey, anxiety
Babylon's burning, Babylon's burning
Babylon's burning now, can't you see
Babylon's burning with anxiety

Babylon's burning, Babylon's burning
Babylon is burning
Babylon's burning, Babylon's burning
Babylon is burning with anxiety


Cacophony

I have covered most the country
In less than 3 days
Feeling fade and ambivalent
Does it show in my face?
I keep asking pointless questions
Just to pass the time
I'm the devil with a conscience
Make grape juice into wine

Cacophony
With lemonade money and champagne ideas
Cacophony
What the fucks the difference cos its
All gonna sound the same to you
And me

I'm alone and yet surrounded
Dangerously loud
Hold my breathe and count to 10
But nothing will come out
This cacophony created
Makes me warm inside
If I cover up my smile
My pride will be denied

You can see my reflections in the water if you try
And the bubbles that surround it are conflicted with this lie
Taking every known precaution just facing the why
Am I acing out this role that makes me feel like I could fly

Dangerous to approach me
I don't ever make a sound
Instinct makes me move my feet
Will not be tied down


Don’t Waste My Time

You can keep your mundane politics
Keep your slogans on the wall
Your pessimistic attitudes
No good to me at all

Seems like everyday
Somebody kills
The will to break their fall
And pretty soon they find themselves
Crawling up the walls

[Chorus]
Please don’t waste my time
I don’t take life too serious
So don’t waste my time
I keep my living delirious
So don’t waste my time
Don’t take life too serious

All around this planet
There’s a million broken hearts
That wallow in self pity
‘Cos you know that’s the easy part
But I’m just an easy going
Simple kind of guy
So don’t tell me your problems
You know they’ll only waste my time

[Chorus]

[Repeat Chorus]

[Solo]

Don’t – waste my time
Don’t – waste my time
Don’t – waste my time
Don’t – waste my time

[Chorus]

[Chorus]


England Rocks
(Ian Hunter)

Energy calling me, back where I came from
It's such a crude attitude, it's back where it belongs
All the little chicks with the crimson lips go
England Rocks, England Rocks
She's living in sin with a safety pin
England Rocks, England Rocks (etc)

Momma knows but she don't care, she got her worries too
Seven kids and a phoney affair, and the rent is due
All the little kids growing up on the skids
Going England Rocks, England Rocks
American dreams, moody James Deans
Going England Rocks, England Rocks

England Rocks, England Rocks

I got some badges from World War II
I wear 'em just like my Granddad do
He was a villain and I am too
Oh England Rocks, England Rocks

So grab a place, find a space
And yell and scream for more

England Rocks, England Rocks
England Rocks, England Rocks
(to fade)


Fortunate Son
(J. Fogerty)

Some folks are born made to wave the flag,
Ooh, they're red, white and blue.
And when the band plays "Hail to the chief",
Ooh, they point the cannon at you, Lord,

It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no senator's son, son.
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one, no,

Yeah!
Some folks are born silver spoon in hand,
Lord, don't they help themselves, oh.
But when the taxman comes to the door,
Lord, the house looks like a rummage sale, yes,

It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no millionaire's son, no.
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one, no.

Some folks inherit star spangled eyes,
Ooh, they send you down to war, Lord,
And when you ask them, "How much should we give?"
Ooh, they only answer More! more! more! yoh,

It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no military son, son.
It ain't me, it ain't me; I ain't no fortunate one, one.

It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate one, no no no,
It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no fortunate son, no no no,

Hard Times

Hard times, hard times

You tell me that I 'm selfish when I'm out every night
When I come home you're never so tell me who was right?
You make me suspicious when you're taking a call
So why I'm in the bathroom with my head to the wall

When I get excited baby you get depressed
You wanna party yeah when I wanna rest
I know the dice are loaded but we can't resist our touch
I'll never understand it why I love her, 

[Chorus]
We give each other hard times
We love those hard times
We give in to those hard times
We get those hard times
These are the hard times

Well I feel a disproval in the company I keep
When you wanna talk about I wanna sleep
We're building up the pressure get it on
I say something you don't like then we come stuck

????????????
????????????

[Chorus]
We give each other hard times
We love those hard times
We give in to those hard times
We need those hard times

Everybody's looking for their perfect living way
Yeah
The more we get the more we want
The more we want the more we get
The more we get the more we want
The more we want the more we get

Hard times
We love those hard times
We give in to those hard times
We need those hard times

They said in hard times ???????

We'll never understand it cos we're always out to give each other
Hard times
(repeat to fade)


Hurts

Thereís always something taking place
Beneath my happy smiling face
That I wear a frown

It isnít that I have a doubt
Itís more about the feeling
Thatís hanging round 

It isnít like a new phenomena
I was just a commoner
Way back when

But at the time Iím flying
Thereís no point in us denying
What's happening

[Chorus]
Cos it hurts just a little bit more
Than it ever did before
Yeah it hurts just a little bit more
Than it ever did before

Dice is always loaded
So the game I canít control
Itís never fair

The crumbs beneath the table
Arenít sufficient to disable
All that I fear

Where in this equation
Is the source of our salvation
And happiness

Still waiting for an answer
Iím a lover not a dancer
Of all your sweet tenderness

But it hurts just a little bit more
Than it ever did before
Yeah it hurts just a little bit more
Than it ever did before
And it takes all my time to ignore
Everything that gone before
Yeah it hurts just a little bit more more more
But itís a good ?????

Yeah it hurts just a little bit more
Than it ever did before
Yeah it hurts just a little bit more
Than it ever did before
And it takes all my time to ignore
Everything that gone before
Yeah it hurts just a little bit more
Than it ever did
Yeah it hurts just a little bit more
Than it ever did before
Yeah it hurts just a little bit more
Than it ever did
And it takes all my time to ignore
Everything that gone before
Yeah it hurts just a little bit more more more more


I Got The Shakes

I finish work about a quarter to nine
A six-pack later and I'm doing fine
I get that nervous stretch where I can't wait
To see you later when I get the shakes

[Chorus]
I pull you up
I get the shakes
It kinda tough
To keep it away
It's not enough
Cos I get the shakes baby

I'm driving in my car and you're next to me
It's hard enough resisting please please please
Gonna climb right in the back yeah and put on the brakes
I love it baby when I get the shakes

[Chorus]
I pull you up
I get the shakes
It kinda tough
To keep it away
It's not enough
Cos I get the shakes baby

[Bridge]
I wanna love you every moment but I'd never survive
This love affair is the one thing that keeps me alive
Don't want it hard, give back all that it takes

I get the shakes
Get the shakes for me
Why don't you come on down
Come on give me the shakes yeah yeah

[Verse 3]
I wake to find out that it's Monday again
This working week will surely drive me insane
It's hard just try enough to keep me awake
Can't wait for weekend honey when I get the shakes

[Chorus]
I pull you up
I get the shakes
It kinda tough
To keep it away
It's not enough
Cos I get the shakes baby

I get the shakes, come on
I get the shakes, come on
I get the shakes, come on

Shake it, shake it yeah


It's A Shame

[Verse 1]
Sometimes I get so low
But she wonít hurt if she donít know
I couldnít help it I was under her spell
I was probably wrong but I know myself too well

[Chorus]
Itís a shame oh itís a shame
How she comes and she goes
Itís a shame oh itís a shame
Itís a shame sheís loving me
But not for us to be in love

[V2]
I get a kick just from touching her skin
And I break a sweat when she walks in
I never under-estimate the power of dreams
Cos the things that sheís got Ė just ainít what them seem

[Chorus]

[Middle8]
Iíll go home but I wonít be there at all
And I smile and pretend thereís nothing wrong at all
The next time Iíll be
Hanging by a thread in case she ever susses me 

[V3]
Perhaps itís time that I told her when
I fell out of love and I canít pretend no more
Such a terrible thing to do
Cos sheís needs me in the way that I need you

Itís a shame oh itís a shame
How she comes and she goes
Itís a shame oh itís a shame 

Itís a shame oh itís a shame
How she comes and she goes
Itís a shame oh itís a shame

Shame that sheís loving me
That not how I meant it to be
Itís a shame oh itís a shame 

Shame shame Ė when Iím touching her skin
I break a sweat when she walks in Ö.to fadeÖ..


Jailhouse Rock
(Elvis Presley)

The warden threw a party in the county jail
prison band was there and they began to wail
band was jumpin' and the joint began to swing
should've heard those knocked out jail birds sing

Chorus:
Lets Rock !
Lets Rock !
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was a-dancin' to the Jail-house Rock!

Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone
Little Joe was blowin' on the slide trombone
The drummer boy for Illinois went crash, boom, bang !
The whole rhythm section was the purple gang

Chorus

Number forty seven said to Number Three:
You're the cutest jailbird I ever did see.
I sure would be delighted with your company
Come on and do the jailhouse rock with me.

Chorus

The sad sack was a-sittin' on a block of stone
Way over in the corner weeping all alone
The warden said: " Hey, buddy, don't you be no square.
If you can't find a partner use a wooden chair !"

Chorus

Shifty Henry said to Bugs: "For Heaven's sakes,
No one's lookin'; now's our chance to make a break
Bugsy turned to Shifty and he said " Nix, nix;
I wanna stick around a while and get my kicks.

Chorus


Jump The Gun
(BJ Dickinson, J Dickinson, T Jepson, M Lee, M Plunkett)

Met her on Sunday
She was looking pretty fine
Couldn't wait til Monday
To make her mine

[Chorus]
She's got my love inside
These feelings I can't hide
She's got me on the run
Looks like it's time to jump the gun

Well I couldn't keep a hold of it
Nearly had to tie a know
Yeah, I had to make sure of it
Give it my best shot

[Chorus]
She's got my love inside
These feelings I can't hide
She's got me on the run
Looks like it's time to jump the gun

Well I think I made a mess of it
Really hit the knucklebone
Think I'll smoke another cigarette
And watch her frowning through the smoke

[Chorus]
She's got my love inside
These feelings I can't hide
She's got me on the run
Looks like it's time to jump the gun


Just One Night

[Verse 1]
Hard enough of this wasting time I wanna stay all night
Don't pretend and don't act surprised I see your eyes alight
If you wanna close to me you better put him out of your mind
Sometimes it is good to be a little tantalized

[Bridge]
Bail out in the morning
Bail out in the morning
Bail out in the morning that's alright

[Chorus]
But give a little love
Give a little love
Give a little love for just one night
Give a little love
Give a little love
Give a little love for just one night

[Verse 2]
Don't you talk and don't say a word I am your fantasy
I will almost anything that you want me to be
If you tell me that I'm not a rush and I'm feeling so good
But I'll gone in the morning light and I hope that's understood

[Bridge]
[Chorus] x 2
Just one night

[Solo]

Kids Wanna Rock
(B. Adams, J. Vallance)

Turned on the radio
Sounded like a disco
Musta turned the dial for a couple of miles
But I couldn't find no rock 'n roll

This computerized crap ain't gettin' me off
Everywhere I go the kids wanna rock

London to L.A.
Talkin' 'bout the new wave
For a couple of bucks you get a weird haircut
And waste your life away

Around the world or around the block
Everywhere I go the kids wanna rock

Get me my D.J.
I got somethin' he's gotta play
Wanna hear it I can't wait
So turn it up, turn it up...

Kick down the barricades
Listen to what the kids say
From time to time people change their minds
But the music is here to stay

I've seen it all from the bottom to the top
Everywhere I go kids wanna rock

Around the world or around the block
Everywhere I go the kids wanna rock
Everywhere I go the kids wanna rock

Move In Slow

In a world of mice and men
Some mice never get the cheese
And it hurts just a little bit more than you can say
But you can't learn this process on your knees

[Chorus]
You got to move in slow
Show your baby what you know
Move in slow
Time is all you've got to show

Fascination in her eyes
Expectations now are running high
And it hurts just a little bit more done properly
But you've got to treat her gently

Chorus

Don't try too hard it will defeat you in the end
Don't keep the pressure on but if you walk away
If you turn your back and cry
You will never get to heaven if you don't try try try

Repeat chorus to end


My Generation

People try to put us d-down (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Just because we get around (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Things they do look awful c-c-cold (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I hope I die before I get old (Talkin' 'bout my generation)

This is my generation
This is my generation, baby

Why don't you all f-fade away (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
And don't try to dig what we all s-s-say (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I'm not trying to cause a big s-s-sensation (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I'm just talkin' 'bout my g-g-g-generation (Talkin' 'bout my generation)

This is my generation
This is my generation, baby

Why don't you all f-fade away (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
And don't try to d-dig what we all s-s-say (Talkin' 'bout my generation)

Things they do look awful c-c-cold (Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Yeah, I hope I die before I get old (Talkin' 'bout my generation)

This is my generation

Overrated

We've heard it all before
You close and lock the door
It's an attitude
On this we shall be fated

The lights go out again
We fight though we feel the pain
Of this heavy weight
And accept those ??? we hate

Time is running out
It's time to face it
Just like that song it's overrated

Overrated
Overrated
Overrated
Overrated
What about you
Are you not?
While you're tied up in all of your knots

The ones with poisoned pens
Look like they'll win again
With their dirty hands
To kill the thing we ?created?

The ??????????????
Cheap words and cheaper shoes
As the victim falls
And life is slowly draining

Time is running out
We got to face it
Just like that line it's overrated

Overrated
Overrated
Overrated
Overrated
What about you
Are you not?
While you're tied up in all of your knots
Getting tied up
Getting tied up
Getting tied up

Time is running out
We got to face it
Just like that song it's overrated

Overwhelming Me

Iíve been waiting for so long
Am I crazy Ė I donít understand whatís going on
Didnít see where you came from
Thought that I would end up living out my life alone

Please forgive me if I seem a little out of my head

Oh itís overwhelming me
So unexpectedly
Is this how I should feel? Is it real?
Oh itís overwhelming me
So unexpectedly
Finally I feel something real

But itís hard to change routine
Cos Iím a creature comforted by falling in-between
Can you give me a little time
To adjust I spent so long preparing for the fight

Please forgive me if I seem a little out of my head

Oh itís overwhelming me
So unexpectedly
Is this how should I feel?  Is it real?
Oh itís overwhelming me
So unexpectedly
Finally I feel something real

Is this real enough
Is this the real thing weíve got
I could not take rejection
Not again Iíd rather stop it now
So tell me please Iíve got to know
Can we let this love grow

Oh itís overwhelming me
So unexpectedly
Is this how should I feel?  Is it real?
Oh itís overwhelming me
So unexpectedly
Finally I feel something real

Oh itís overwhelming me
So unexpectedly
Is this how should I feel?  Is it real?
Oh itís overwhelming me
So unexpectedly
Finally I feel something real


Picking Up The Pieces

NB: This is all I can remember!

Picking up the pieces
Picking up the pieces
Picking up the pieces of this life that I once knew
Picking up the pieces
Picking up the pieces
Picking up the shattered and twisted remains that was once me and you


Revival
(BJ Dickinson, J Dickinson, T Jepson, M Lee, M Plunkett, A Paul)

You may think I'm crazy certifiable
But I know that I love you, I swear on the bible
Mistakes with me are easy, but I'll try girl
To compensate for every word of libel

I apologise for straying clear of the right road
But I had so much honey I had my mind blow
These words they don't mean nothing, and I feel shameful
But please hear me out before you walk away

[Chorus]
Revival
Give me your loves sweet revival
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme
Revival
Revival
Revival
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme back your love

So please put my bags down baby, and I'll put the light on
And don't tell me that it's over and I'm alone
I know there's no reason and I should be long gone
If you let me stay I'll mend my wicked way

[Chorus]
Revival
Give me your loves sweet revival
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme
Revival
Revival
Revival
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme back your love

Rockin' All Over The World
(J. Fogerty)

Well here we are, and here we are, and here we go,
All aboard and we're hitting the road,
Here we go-oh,
Rockin all over the world.

And I like it, I like it, I like it, I like it,
I la la la like it, la la la like, 
Here we go-oh, rockin' all over the world.

I'm gonna tell your mamma what you're gonna do,
Come on out, put your dancing shoes, 
Here we go-oh,
Rockin all over the world.


Schizophrenia Blues

I know what you're thinking
I know but I can't say
Can you hear my voice, inside my head
I wish it would go away

You and me so secretly
So comfortably unknown
We're bad to the bone (voices)
Bad to the bone (in my head)
Bad to the bone (voices)
Bad to the bone (in my head)

You're not certain you think you were haunted
You suspect that there is somebody else
And you can't sleep cos we're always talking
It's a conversation I have with myself

So ?something? so easy
To invite back to my home
Bad to the bone (voices)
Bad to the bone (in my head)
Bad to the bone (voices)
Bad to the bone (in my head)

You can come inside but we won't get on
Please don't worry though, cos we're not alone
If you could see what I could see
You'd see I'm not the man I used to be

I creep slowly up to the mirror
Just to check if maybe you're still there
Greet us both with a smile
And that stupid vacant stare

Just when I think it's over
It's coming around again
Bad to the bone (voices)
Bad to the bone (in my head)
Bad to the bone (voices)
Bad to the bone (in my head)

(repeats)


Sex In Cars

When the moon is full
And they all said their prayers
The young are a dangerous breed
The rich and the poor boys
Driving with the hammer down
Go out in the fields to feed
When the night fall comes to this town
Look up your mothers and chance
Cos there ain’t no way
To gee it out your system
Till you sample
That four wheeled romance

[Bridge]
Cars in the park
Cars in the scrap yard
Everybody wants to
But nobody tells
You get a good feeling
When the suns goes down

[Chorus]
Sex in cars
Love me on the backseat
Feel my fire
Come and get entangled in my desire.

Everybody’s talking ‘bout
Indecent exposure
But that don’t really come into this
It’s just one of these things
That we all do at one time
Like leaving school
Or the taste of first kiss

[Repeat Bridge]

[Repeat Chorus]

[Solo]

[Repeat Bridge]

[Repeat Chorus]

Love me love my car
Love me love my car
Love me love my car
Love me love my car


Sharp Dressed Man

Clean Shirt, New Shoes
And I Don't Know Where I Am Goin' To.
Silk Suit, Black Tie,
I Don't Need A Reason Why.

Take It Off
(BJ Dickinson, J Dickinson, T Jepson, M Lee, M Plunkett)

Well she walked with a smile that said 'come on'
She took me home to play her 45a
One look and I was totally helpless
She said I like a man who treats a lady with style

Well I wouldn't say that I was down begging for a move
But that music, she plays sure puts me in the mood
I got caught between the lust for that woman 
And the needle in the groove

[Chorus]
Take it off
C'mon won't you please take it off

Well by 8 o'clock I was going crazy
She hadn't asked me if I wanted to dance
She just kept on playing records to tease me
She I stopped in my tracks and though I might take a chance

I told her what I wanted
Told her how I tried
And how you never get to Heaven
If the pleasure stuff's denied
She caught between the lust for that woman 
And the needle in the groove

[Chorus]
Take it off
C'mon won't you please take it off

That lady didn't take very kindly
To me messing with her record machine
And I sure was no match for her Father
So I wound up on the street brushing dust from my jeans

I told you I was shocked by the events of the day
But I just had to laugh cos nothing ventured nothing gained
I got caught between the lust for that woman
And what her father had to say

[Chorus] to fade


The Chosen One

Though itís hard to admit
I stopped making sense
Between the blood and the spit
I lost my confidence

But I never thought
That I would live to see
All my hopes fade away
The rests just bad memories

So hold on tight, donít be scared
Donít look down unless youíre well prepared
Turn my face to the sun
Iím not gonna be the chosen one

This foolish work of art
Has everything but taste
While cautious men slow down
The idiot makes haste

And the tracks of my tears
As plain as the egg on my face
And as I crack a smile
Itís hard to imagine what those tears erase

?????? rides down, another fall
Just you wait until your dad gets home
Happiness, worn and gone
Iím not gonna be the chosen one
Footloose, two left feet
Sometimes hell the only place to be
Putting your faith in fools
??Fool is wrong???
Well Iím not gonna be the chosen one
Iím not gonna be the chosen one

I wonít wait
Canít be late
When Iíll be back I canít say
I wonít wait
Canít be late
When Iíll be back I canít say

So forgive my mouth
Exonerate
Letsí not holler
Put on the brakes
Guilt complex
Hours of fun
Iím not gonna be the chosen one
Waters on
Little rain
Old men know the truth but still complain
Welcome to this house of fun
Iím not gonna be the chosen one
The chosen one
The chosen one
The chosen one
Iím not gonna be the chosen one
Turn my face to the sun
Cos Iím not gonna be the chosen one


The Mighty Quinn (Quinn The Eskimo)
(Bob Dylan)

Everybody's building the big ships and boats
Some are building monuments
Others, jotting down notes
Everybody's in despair
Every girl and boy
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
Everybody's gonna jump for joy
Come on without, come on within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn

I like to do just like the rest, I like my sugar sweet
But guarding fumes and making haste
It ain't my cup of meat
Everybody's 'neath the trees
Feeding pigeons on a limb
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
All the pigeons gonna run to him
Come on without, come on within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn

A cat's meow and a cow's moo, I can recite them all
Just tell me where it hurts you, honey
And I'll tell you who to call
There's someone on everyone's toes
But when Quinn the Eskimo gets here
Everybody's gonna want to doze
Come on without, come on within
You'll not see nothing like the mighty Quinn


This Ain't The Way It's Supposed To Be

Itís not the way itís supposed to be
Everybody should be free
Hit an all time big low
Is this the way we gotta go
Itís not the way itís supposed to be
You may say that I'm naive
Or a dreamer to believe
But I'm hoping through the pain
Love will live again
 
Yeah I'm hopin', Yeah I'm tryin'
For most of the time it's an emotional relyin'
On people, And their spirits
Crushed because they think that no-one can hear us

Unfortunate Man

They were all gathered in a bloodthirsty pack
To witness the end and to hear his neck snap
In a room made of cinderblocks, cold glass and steel
Another mans life they would yield

In the press box they jostled with ???? and pen
Reporting the climax Ė a story of sin
That started with murder and ends in the hands
Of the state executioners purpose

The priest took the book to the condemned mans side
And ask for his last words and this is what he cried 

I was not born a sinner
Itís what Iíve become
Iíve spent my days living close to the bone
Iíve been ?????? all my life, and desperate and small
But not born a sinner at all
Not born a sinner

Iím a man with a conscience he screamed from his lungs
And Iím not proud to say I took the life of someone
But itís a cold kind of irony to die for a crime
I committed for my own survival

He shook and contorted as the tears fell like rain
His words punctuated his anger and pain

I was not born a sinner
Itís what Iíve become
Iíve been put down at each twist and each turn
Iíve been shackled to poverty, rushed and abused
No not born a sinner
Just used

Now the good lord will judge me from this mortal coil
Releases my soul from that box in the soil
And I sing with the angels
Cos at least I wonít be
Fighting with every ounce present in me

Not born a sinner
I can see thatís the truth
But can kill me but my blood stains on you
Iím so tired ???? and not giving a damn
Not born a sinner
Just an unfortunate man

And I did what I did to survive
Not born a sinner


We Gotta Get Out Of This Place

In this dirty old part of the city

Won't Get Fooled Again

We'll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgement of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again

The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fold, that's all
And the world looks just the same
And history ain't changed
'Cause the banners, they are flown in the next war

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
No, no!

I'll move myself and my family aside
If we happen to be left half alive
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
Though I know that the hypnotized never lie
Do ya?

There's nothing in the streets
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
And the parting on the left
Are now parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again
No, no!

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss

You've Got To Hide Your Love Away
(Lennon, McCartney)

Here I stand head in hand
Turn my face to the wall
If she's gone I can't go on
Feelin' two-foot small

How could she say to me
Love will find a way
Gather round all you clowns
Let me hear you say

Hey you've got to hide your love away
Hey you've got to hide your love away

How could I even try
I can never win
Hearing them, seeing them
In the state I'm in

Hey you've got to hide your love away
Hey you've got to hide your love away

Hey you've got to hide your love away
Hey you've got to hide your love away
Hey you've got to hide your love away
Hey you've got to hide your love away
