The Jam – The Modern World lyrics
The modern world - Paul Weller
This is a modern world, this is the modern world.
What kind of a fool do you think I am?
You think I know nothing of the modern world.
All my life has been the same
I've learned to live by hate and pain
It's my inspiration drive -
I've learned more than you'll ever know
Even at school I feld quite sure
That one day I would be on top
And I'd look down upon the map
The teachers who said I'd be nothing -
This is the modern world, that I've learnt about
This is the modern world, we don't need no one
To tell us what's right or wrong -
Say what you like, 'cause I don't care
I know where I am and going too
It's somewhere I won't preview
Don't have to explain myself to you
I don't give two fucks about your review!
