Won’t get fooled again, av The Who

Ny helg, ny låt. Tack för alla tips på band/låtar med frihetliga budskap.

Text:
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 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 me
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
And I’ll get on my knees and pray
We don’t get fooled again
Don’t get fooled again

Change it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fall that’s all
But the world looks just the same
And history ain’t changed
’Cause the banners, they all 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 me
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
And I’ll get on my knees and pray
We don’t get fooled again
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
For 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
And the parting on the left
Is now the 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 me
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!

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss

  • Denna trudelutt från 1995 är lite mer explicit i sin systemkritik
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MD_uDGQ8uEI
    och nästan lite profetisk i stycket om hope and change…

    Om jag hör rätt lyder texten något åt detta hållet:

    There’s something wrong with the
    There’s something wrong with the system

    Massconfusion
    Let me start with a boom boom
    I am backing up so you gotta give me room now
    Give it to me
    Give it to me
    Give it to me
    Give it

    It’s 1995 and it’s time for some new shit
    Gotta take a stand ’cause the state is a mess and
    the legal system’s getting close to oppression
    Unemployment compensation
    More computer registration

    I’m a number (what it is)
    10 digits on a screen (wrong)
    That’s what fills my head with adrenalin
    Attention attention
    Yeah that’s what I need
    Democracy hasn’t got a chance if you proceed

    Violent, not at all
    I’m a man of justice
    Giving you my word
    so you’re gonna have to trust this song
    I won’t be here for long
    so I won’t say it’s right
    when I know that it’s wrong
    Give it to me now

    There’s something wrong with the system

    There’s something wrong with the system
    but they won’t listen
    The people on my ground
    are supposed to kiss them

    No thanks
    I don’t wanna be a part of it
    It doesn’t look like politics
    It’s more like a gangsta hit

    So what you sayin’,
    can you stand it?
    You gotta react before it’s too late goddammit
    Mirror mirror
    on the wall
    Tell me what the hell is it good for

    Race for the power
    Why don’t you give up?
    I say I don’t like it
    but you don’t give a (what?)

    What’s the matter,
    are you totally deranged
    You gave me hope
    and ain’t a damn thing changed

    Massconfusion
    Doesn’t hesitate to say it
    Delay it
    ain’t no time
    Cause now we gotta play it

    There’s something wrong with the system
