The Kids Don't Stand A Chance Lyrics

by Vampire Weekend

A devastatin' backstroke
All the way from France
With shiny, shiny cuff links
A shirtsleeve to enhance

The pin striped men of mornin'
Are comin' for to dance
With pure Egyptian cotton
The kids don't stand a chance

You criticize the practice
By murderin' the plans
Ignorin' all the history
Denyin' them romance

The pin striped men of mornin'
Are comin' for to dance
Forty million dollars
The kids don't stand a chance

I didn't like the business
But that was at first glance
Your pillow feels so soft now
But still you must advance

The pin striped men of mornin'
The partners in the dance
Paper's shot to pieces
The kids don't stand a chance
