Verse One
Rock n’ Roll’s not dead it’s just middle aged
now the boom generation’s all on the same page, gave
loans to our children, our guilt assuaged
while we were burning fossil fuel

Verse Two
Moved to the suburbs ‘cause it seemed the right thing
plenty in the cupboards ‘cause we worked our rings off
had a few tenants so we’ve earned this bling
we were only burning fossil fuel

I didn’t say we don’t care about it
but we just ain’t gonna shout it

It’s a climate change emergency
blah blah blah
don’t tell me where I can
drive my car
we beat the commies
so get thee far
outta here with all that noise

Verse Three
We get really tired of getting the blame
old folks targets in the young one’s game
don’t come to us if the world’s in flames
we were only burning fossil fuel

Verse Four
So many things now we just can’t say
we’re not racists but we’re painted that way
some of my very best friends were gay
when we were burning fossil fuel

I really doubt that our grand kids’ll get it
but socialism’s gonna ruin the planet


Ain’t a thing we can say or do
so let’s sing like the Beach Boys out of tune

*Emergency alarm and statement*
