The Kids Don't Like To Rock n Roll

It's not worth your breath
Don't hang around
It's pointless what you're writing now
Stop what you're doing
You're making a mess
Get your mind off money and success

Can't you growl through you teeth or something?
Your beautiful voice means nothing
It's not in your tonsils
Or under control
But the kids don't like to rock n roll

No, the kids don't like it
The kids don't like it
The kids don't like it
The kids don't like to rock n roll

Critics say the nineties never stopped
We're stuck in a bubble
And it's not about to pop
If I hear Valerie played again
I'm going smash my guitar in ten

Drop the heartfelt pain for a while
No substance here nor style
They'll swing to anything
From ragtime to soul
But the kids don't like to rock n roll

No, the kids don't like it
The kids don't like it
The kids don't like it
The kids don't like to rock n roll

No, the kids don't like it
The kids don't like it
The kids don't like it
The kids don't like to rock n roll

21st century
No more stars
Nothing in the headlines
No more bands in the bars

No obituary
No tears shed
No one's saying anything
Is rock n roll dead?

Because if the kids don't like it
Then the kids don't like it
And if the kids don't like it
Rock n roll's dead

If the kids don't like it
And the kids don't like it
If the kids don't like it...
Rock n roll
