Common Enemy – British Invasion lyrics

I'm sick of all these kids I see,
They don't make no fucking sense to me
All they care about is bands from the U.K.
They think they're so fucking punk,
But their eyes are closed and their minds are shut
They don't know shit about the bands from the U.S.A.

Whatever happened to the American bands
Some how they've been lost
If it's not from U.K. 82
These kids today don't give a fuck

Now don't get me wrong, I like a lot of British stuff
I love Alien Sex Fiend, Napalm Death, and GBH
But what about the bands like Channel 3, Zero Boys, and M.D.C.
All the great bands that came from the United States


When you dance the same and dress the same
It won't be long til you are the same
You look the same and act the same
There's nothing new and you're to blame
This is America not the U.K.
