Won’t Get Fooled Again: Townshend

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

[Chorus]
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

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]

Don’t want to get fooled again
No, no!

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss
