Won't Get Fooled Again Lyrics

by Van Halen

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
And the judgment was all wrong
Decide and let the shotgun
Sing the song

I'll tip my hat
To the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin and change all around

I pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again, oh no

Well, there's nothing in the streets
Look any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye

And the parting on the left
Now parting on the right
And the beards have all
Grown longer overnight

Well, 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
Don't get fooled again, no, no, 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 though I know
That the hypnotized never lie do ya?

Yeah, meet the new boss
Same as the old boss
Won't get fooled again, oh no
Don't get fooled again, no no
