Jerusalem Slim – Rock 'n Roll Degeneration lyrics

Well, the graveyard shifted back in '55
The rebel rousers brought the threat to life
You were just a sparkle in your daddy's eye
Elvis joined the army and buddy holly died
Every eleven years
The dam breaks from our tears
The next endagered species fades away
And disappears
It disappears
Reputation it preceded you
It's all about the evil that good men do
Corporations got mind control
The degeneration of rock n' roll
66' we got tragically hip
The kiss of judas blessed the politics
'77 no day at the beach
Rude awakening of the nouveau riche
Every eleven years
The dam breaks from our tears
The next endagered species fades away
And disappears
We disappear
Reputation it preceded you
It's all about the evil that good men do
Corporations got mind control
The degeneration of rock n' roll
God is good but heaven can wait
Make your cash while the greed is great
Corporations got mind control
The degeneration of rock' n roll
Now it's way past '88
No one dares to deviate
Find a cause the guilt is great
Intelligence is gone
I've got a new years resolution
Start a revolution for rock' n roll
Reputation it preceded you
It's all about the evil that good men do
Corporations got mind control
The degeneration of rock n' roll
The degeneration of rock n' roll
The degeneration of rock n' roll
Degeneration
Degenerate, degenerate
The degeneration of rock n' roll
