Richie Havens – Won't Get Fooled Again lyrics

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 the shotgun sings the song

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin for the changes all around
Pick up my guitar and play just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We won't be 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
History just ain't changed 'cause the banners
They're all flown in this next war

And I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin for the changes all around
Pick up my guitar and play just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray, hey
We don't get fooled again

I'll move myself and my family aside
If we just happen to be left half alive
I'll get my papers and I smile at the sky
Though I know that the hypnotized never lie

There's nothing in the street
That looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced by the by
And the parting on the left
Is now the parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

And I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the changes 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, oh no

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss
Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss
Same as the old boss

Come on, feel it
Come on
