Nothing For The Kids Submit Correct Lyrics

I'm gonna pack up my troubles in my old kit-bag
I'm gonna run a mile from here
The ASBO generation make this a terror nation
Full of loathing and fear

All the bleary-eyed boys getting high on the low street
While the girls lift clothes down the high street and they say
"Yeah I know, I know it's wrong but I can't be bothered to pay
I got the money but I need it for my dealer today"

And her friends are all the same
And they know it's not right
But they were promised more from this life

There's nothing for the kids to do today
There's nothing for the kids to do today
There's nothing for the kids to do today

Shaun has an ASBO, he's only fourteen
He's tired and he's bored with the local police
"They're pricks," he says, "I didn't get a second chance
They didn't ask why I did it"

The pigs been seen for puttin' up his heard
While pedophiles playing his neck in the woods
He's got no safety numbers when his ASBO won't allow him
To be hanging around in gangs, what is he to do?

He's been kicked out of school
What a way to fix a fool, we are failing our youth
Parents and governors can you handle the truth?

There's nothing for the kids to do today
There's nothing for the kids to do today
There's nothing for the kids to do today
There's nothing for the kids to do

Who's to blame? The mainstream media?
Our rulers and idols get greedier and seedier
They're an embarrassment, they should be shamed
For misguiding our youth, they're the ones to blame

Sit back and watch the evil grow
From the youth club ruins where the kids used to go
Take all that's [Incomprehensible], dying on there feet
While the Premiership players get a hundred grand a week

The kids love them anyway
It don't make sense
When you have a go at me
For the sake of fifty pence

And why attack the fire brigade
You load them in a track with a fire grenade
You shower them with drugs 'cause they've nothin' to do
Why should I care when the [Incomprehensible] come lookin' at you

There's nothing for the kids to do today
There's nothing for the kids to do today
I said, there's nothing for the kids to do today
There's nothing for the kids to do

But I say
There's plenty for the kids to do today
There's plenty for the kids to do today
There's so much for the kids to do today
