Pete Townshend – Slip Kid lyrics

I've got my clipboard, text books
Lead me to the station
Yeah, I'm off to the civil war
I've got my kit bag my heavy boots
I'm running in the rain
Gonna run till my feet are raw

Slip kid. Slip kid,
Second generation
I'm a soldier at thirteen
Slip kid. Slip kid
Realization
There's no easy way to be free
No easy way to be free

It's a hard, hard world
Oh yea

I left my doctor's prescription
Bungalow behind me
I left the door ajar
I left my vacuum flask
Full of hot tea and sugar
Left the keys right in my car

Slip kid. Slip kid
Second generation
I'm only half way up the tree
Slip kid. Slip kid
I'm a relation
I'm a soldier at sixty-three

There's no easy way to be free

Slip kid. Slip kid, Slip kid
Slip kid. Slip kid, Slip kid
Yea, keep it moving now
Slip kid. Slip kid
Give me more

I've got my clipboard, text books
Lead me to the station
Yeah, I'm off to the civil war
I've got my kit bag, my heavy boots
I'm running in the rain
Gonna run till my feet are raw

Slip kid. Slip kid
Slip out of trouble
Slip over here and set me free
Slip kid. Slip kid
Second generation
I'm sliding down the hill like me

There's no easy way to be free
No easy way to be free
No easy way to be free
