We Hate the Kids  The Indelicates

Every generation gets fooled again
And [A]every generation is the same
And its [Bm]no good saying its not in your name
[G] 'cause [A]it is in your name
And [D]this generation is to blame
And [A]this generation is the same
And I'm [Bm]sorry that I can't join in any more
[G]But I've been let down [A]too many times be[G]fore
Oh [A]yeah we mean it
[D] We hate the [Bm]kids
So [G]dance dance dance to this [A]radio to[D]night
I [D]wanted to believe in rock'n'roll stars
I [A]wanted to believe in contemporary art
I [Bm]wanted to aspire to a higher path
[G] But [A]there's no higher path
It was [D]ever thus, and it was ever you
And it's [A]ever us because we'll do it too
And we're [Bm]sorry to the all the disinherited meek, and
We're [G]sorry for this con-trick that we [A]play on the people
[G] Oh [A]yeah we mean it
[D] We hate the [Bm]kids
So [G]dance dance dance to this [A]radio to[D]night [G] [A]
And [D]nobody ever comes alive
And the [A]journalists clamour round glamour like flies
And [Bm]boys who should know better grin and get high
[G]With fat men who once [A]met the MC5
And [D]no one discusses what they don't understand
And [A]no one does anything to harm the brand
And this [Bm]gift is an illusion, this isn't hard
[G]Absolutely anyone can [A]play the fucking gui[G]tar
Oh [A]yeah we mean it
[D] We hate the [Bm]kids
[G]Useless children genuflecting
[A]To the idols who exploit them
[G]Open mouthed and arsed expecting
[A]Some god to anoint them
[G]Dance Dance Dance to this [A]radio to[D]night[G] [A]
[D] [G] [A]  
[D] [G] [A]  
And there's [D]always a monk to get set on fire
And there's [A]always a crackhead charismatic liar
And there's [Bm]always a depth to which you can aspire
And there's [G]always a teenager [A]due to expire
[D]Pop had a beginning, it grew and was tended
[A]Now it is rotten. Let it be ended.
Let [Bm]every hopeless case that every drummer befriended,
[G]Every seven-inch that every [A]student intended
Every [D]groupie and ligger and identity seeker
Every [A]druggy and drinker and every loudspeaker
Be [Bm]done with, be piled up, tossed, set alight
[G]No more music, thank you and goodnight.
