Lyrics


We'll be fighting in the streets With our children at our feet And the morals that they worship will be gone The men who spurred us on Sit in judgment 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 The world looks just the same And history ain't blamed Cause the banners, they are flown in the last 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! We don't get fooled again

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

There's nothing in the street Looks any different to me And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye The parting on the left Is 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 want to get fooled again No, no!

Meet the new boss Same as the old boss
