Tony Carey – Cold War Kids lyrics

Got the radio on they're playin' the monster mash
Kids duck and cover when you see that flash
Tell me what'd you learn in school today
Saw a picture of the russians black and white and grey
We're gonna need some water, fill the bathtub up
Three kids wide-eyed starin' drinkin' campbell's from a cup
My daddy never got the shelter dug
'Cause mama spent the money on a livin' room rug
Yeah

These are things I'm sure of, these are things l see
Somewhere somebody l never even heard of
Has got his finger on the trigger, pointed at me
Well these are the moments, these are the times
Things we remember for the rest of our lives
These are the lessons that never got learned
When you grow up expecting that the world's gonna burn
Like we did - the cold war kids
Yeah

Now jfk and Jackie were the golden ones
Till John-John saluted in the indian summer sun.
And halfway round the world, down there in East Berlin
They're workin on a wall to keep the people in.

These are things I'm sure of, these are things l see
Somewhere somebody I never even heard of
Got his finger on the trigger, pointed at me.
Well these are the moments, these are the times
Things we remember for the rest of our lives
These are the lessons that never get learned
When you grow up expecting that the world might burn
Like we did - the cold war kids

These are the moments, these are the times
Things we remember for the rest of our lives.

Hey, Yeah

These are the moments, these are the times
Things we remember for the rest of our lives.
These are the lessons that never get learned
When you grow up expecting that the world might burn
Cold war kids...
