People try to put us down
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Just because we get around
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)

Things they do look awful cold
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I hope I die before I get old
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)

My generation, my generation, baby

Why don't you just fade away?
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Don't try and dig what we all say
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)

I'm not tryin' to cause a big sensation
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I'm talkin' 'bout my generation
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)

My generation, my generation, baby, my generation, baby

Talkin' 'bout my generation
Talkin' 'bout my generation
Talkin' 'bout my generation
Talkin' 'bout my generation

Generation, my generation, baby

Why don't you all fade away?
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Don't try and dig what we all say
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)

Not tryin' to cause a big sensation
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Talkin' 'bout my generation
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)

My generation, my generation, baby, my generation, baby

People try to put us down
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Just because we get around
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)

Things they do look awful cold
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I hope I die before I get old
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)

My generation, my generation, baby
My generation, my generation, baby
My generation, my generation, baby
My generation

People try to put us down
Just because we get around
Things they do look awful cold
I hope I die before I get old

My generation, my generation, baby
My generation, my generation, baby
My generation

People try to put us down
