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 then 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
Pick up my guitar and play, just like yesterday Then I'll get on my knees and pray

We don't get fooled again

The change, it had to come, we knew it all along
We were liberated from the fold, that's all
And the world looks just the same and history ain't changed 'Cause the banners, they are flown in the next 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
Pick up my guitar and play, just like yesterday Then I'll get on my knees and pray

We 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 Though I know that the hypnotized never lie Do ya?

There's nothing in the streets, looks any different to me And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye

And the parting on the left is now 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
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

Yeah
Meet the new boss Same as the old boss
