Daryl Hall & John Oates – What's Gonna Happen To Us lyrics

I saw on the tv were sellin arms to the enemy

So he can blow us all down

When we charge with the cards in our hands

And men in power places are resigning

Cause even in high seats the woman is still fighting with the man

And tho I thought the time of the tough guy was just about over

Here comes another savior to stir the soldiers in the field

But what do the generals think about while the soldiers are dying

Cause the rallying cries don't reach em

And if they could feel theyd say

Whats gonna happen to us

Does your shrink say find out who you are

Before you try to become a part of me

Id think youd want to anyway

She can't help you live out a middle-class fantasy

But can she talk you into leavin

When your heart tells you to stay

Just when I thought the era of the guru was over

Here comes another savior to stir the soldiers in the field

What does the teacher care about while the student is trying

Cause your crying mind don't reach her

If she could feel shed say

Whats gonna happen to us
