Punk Is Dead  Jeffrey Lewis

[C]Punk is dead, [Am]punk is dead,
[F]Yes that's right, [C]punk is dead,
[C]Punk is dead, [Am]punk is dead,
It's just [F]another cheap product for the [C]consumers' head,
[C]Bubblegum rock on [Am]plastic transistors,
[F]Schoolboy sedition backed by [C]big time promoters,
[C]CBS [Am]promoted the Clash,
[F]but not for revolution, [C]just for cash.
[C]Punk became a fashion just like [Am]hippie used to be,
[F]and it ain't got a thing [C]to do with you or me
[C]Movements are systems and [Am]systems kill,
[F]Movements are expressions of the [C]public will.
[C]Punk became a movement cause they [Am]all felt lost,
[F]but the leaders sold out and now we[C] all pay the cost.
(repeat chorus)
[C]Punk narcissism was a [Am]social napalm,
[F]Rock star punk bands started [C]doing real harm,
[C]Preaching revolution, [Am]anarchy and change,
As they [F]sucked from the system that had [C]given them their name.
[C]Well I'm tired of staring [Am]through shit stained glass,
I'm [F]tired of staring up a superstar's ass,
[C]I've got an ass and a [C]heart and a name,
and [Am]I'm just waiting for my fifteen [F]minutes fame.
And [C]me, yes me, do I [C]want to burn?
Is [Am]there really something that I [F]can learn?
Do I [C]need a business man to [C]promote my angle?
Can I [Am]resist the carrots fame and [F]fortune dangle
I [C]see the velvet zippies in their [C]bondage gear,
The [Am]social elite with safety p[F]ins in their ear,
I [C]watch and understand that it [C]don't mean a thing,
The [Am]scorpions attack, but the s[F]ystems stole the sting
(repeat chorus)
C,Am,F,C 2x
