The Lyrics

People try to put us down(talking 'bout my generation)
Just because we're still around " " "
They say it's time to give it a rest
you know you're really past your best

So you were hot in seventy six
but do you have to keep playing those tired old licks?
God the years have taken their toll
you're far too old to rock and roll

just close up the cabriolet hood
your babe magnet days are gone for good
you've rolled your last humungous spliff
your joints are now too swollen and stiff

that was your generation
your generation baby

why don't you all ffffffade away
and just try to dig what I'm gonna say
I'm not trying to cause a big sensation
I'm just talkin about my generation

so what if the years have taken their toll
your never too old to rock and roll
as long as we can still stagger around
we'll keep pushin out those funky sounds

I don't need no viagra shot
my flamin fender keeps me hot
I've got my sparklin wit and my repartee
and groupies fizzin with HRT

you don't need to ask us to take you higher
you know that we still light your fire
when I can chill all day with capital gold
I don't wanna die before I get old

This is my generation
This is my generation baby

Reminds me of the Simpsons' episode where they jumped to the future, and Lisa had a Rolling Stones' "Steel Wheelchairs" poster on her wall!

My favorite line is "groupies fizzing with HRT". Which actually would be my generation. LOL

Very good parody. I agree with Claude on the best couplet.

Cool! It reminds me of the "Married With Children" episode where Al, along with Peter Noone, Richie Havens, John Sebastian and other rock icons from the 60s made fun of "We are the World" with "Old Aid" -- "We are the old, we have arthritis..."

Disagree on the best couplet: "you’ve rolled your last humungous spliff/your joints are now too swollen and stiff" is just too good :-)

(ABC) Well I prefer to say that they were the standout couplets, complementing the witty rhyming of the rest.
Johnny D - July 30, 2004 - Report this comment
(ABC) "as long as we can still stagger around" .... makes me think of other Brit groups from the '60s..... Rolling Stones.... Moody Blues..... great job, Martha!
