The Who--'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



 

 

NOT The Who--'Won't Get Fooled Again'

 

We'll keep fighting vote by vote

until that pecker who does gloat

about such childish things is gone

And the joke who spurs us on,

now sits in judgment of all wrong,

and has decided paranoia sings the song

 

 

I'll tip my hat to the old constitution,

which was destroyed with idiot revolution

Frown and heave at the change all around

Pick up my channel changer and say,

'no more shit like yesterday'

we won't get fooled again

 

 

The change that came to town,

never fooled me, but was bound

to screw up things, but is so much worse somehow

than even thinking men did fear,

and from our history of flames,

we never learned a goddamned thing

 

 

I'll tip my hat to the old constitution,

which was destroyed with idiot revolution

Frown and heave at the change all around

Pick up my channel changer and say,

'no more shit like yesterday'

we won't get fooled again

 

 

I'll never put myself and my feelings aside,

we've got to stop his damaging lies

My disgust so strong, I'll scream it at the sky


Though I know that the hypnotized will never see why,

Will ya?

 

There's paranoia on your street,

I look around and can't believe,

see common sense is replaced by fear

by the party on the right,

not by the party on the left,

and their fears have all grown stronger overnight

 

I'll tip my hat to the old constitution,

which was destroyed with idiot revolution

Frown and heave at the change all around

Pick up my channel changer and say,

'no more shit like yesterday'

we won't get fooled again

 

Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit!

Meet the new boss

definitely not like any boss
