Vampire Weekend – The Kids Don't Stand A Chance lyrics

A devastating backstroke
All the way from France
With shiny, shiny cufflinks
A shirtsleeve to enhance

The pin-striped men of morning
Are coming forward to dance
With pure Egyptian cotton
The kids don't stand a chance

You criticize the practice
By murdering their plans
Ignoring all the history
Denying them romance

The pin-striped men of morning
Are coming forward to dance
Forty-million dollars
The kids don't stand a chance

I didn't like the business,
But that was at first glance
Your pillow feels so soft now
But still you must advance

The pin-striped men of morning
The partners in the dance
The paper's shot to pieces
The kids don't stand a chance
