Whoo!

Pardon me 4 livin' but this is my world 2
I can't help what's cool 2 us might b strange 2 U
Pardon me 4 breathin', can we borrow some of ur air?
The trouble with ur generation is that U don't take time 2 care

Ain't got time 4 politics, we'll never fight no war
Makin' love and music's the only things worth fighting 4
Bold generation, we wanna change the world
The only thing that's n our way is U
Ur old fashioned music and ur old ideas
We're sick and tired of U tellin' us what 2 do

Pardon me 4 thinkin' but there's somethin' under my hair
Maybe U thought the lights were on but no 1's livin' there
Pardon me 4 livin' but this is my world 2
I hope they bury ur old ideas the same time they bury U

Ain't got time 4 politics, we'll never fight no war
Makin' love and music's the only things worth fighting 4
Bold generation, we wanna change the world
The only thing that's n our way is U
Ur old fashioned music and ur old ideas
We're sick and tired of U tellin' us what 2 do
Uh
Let me hear 2gether
Uh

Yeah!
Bold generation, we wanna change the world
The only thing that's n our way is U (Yeah!)
Ur old fashioned music and ur old ideas (Yeah!)
We're sick and tired of U tellin' us what 2 do
Bold generation, we wanna change the world
The only thing that's n our way is U
Ur old fashioned music and ur old ideas
We're sick and tired of U tellin' us what 2 do

Oh yeah, wanna change the world
Wanna change, wanna change, wanna change the world
Bold generation, yeah
Say it, bold generation (Yeah...)
Everybody say it, bold generation (Yeah...)
Yeah!
Bold generation (Yeah...!)
Bold generation (Yeah...)
Bold generation (Wanna change the world)
Everybody say it, everybody say it, everybody... (Oh)
Bold generation
Everybody now, oh yeah

Pardon me 4 breathin', can we borrow some of ur air?
The trouble with ur generation is U don't take time 2 care
Ain't no time 4 politics, we'll never fight no war
Makin' love and music's the only things worth fighting 4

Bold generation, we wanna change the world
The only thing that's n our way is U
(Change the world, U gotta change the world) (That's right)
Bold generation (Ur old fashioned music and ur old ideas)
We're sick and tired of U tellin' us what 2 do
Don't tell us what 2 do
Bold generation
OK
