"Children Of The Revolution" as written by and Marc Bolan....
Well you can bump and grind
And it's good for your mind
Well you can twist and shout
Let it all hang out

But you won't fool the children of the revolution
No you won't fool the children of the revolution
No, no, no!

Well you can terraplane
In the fallin' rain
I drive a Rolls Royce
Cause it's good for my voice

But you won't fool the children of the revolution...

    General CommentThis song is like heavy but still fun.
    Makes me think of a gray city on a cloudy day.
    I loved the scene on Billy Elliot (where theres a lot of TRex music) where they play this song with Billy and this girl he likes fighting with pillows (OH and did you notice her wall with white swans on it?? Ride a white swan!!!!!)

    General CommentThis song reminds me of my "wild younger days ".
    I grew up in former G.D.R./East Germany. I still remember my classmates who all voted for Marc Bolan and Mickey Finn, that time on rank 2 of the TOP 10 in German charts in the early seventies.We wanted Marc to be number one, and a few weeks later he was. Afterwards his song "Easy action" was on top though I still consider "Children of the revolution one of my 10 favorite songs- forever.I'd gladly download the song.
    Can I do it here ? If yes, can someone give me some advise how to do it, please? Is it for free then?
    I still need some help to learn how to navigate as I started membership today. I'll still have to learn a lot.
    Beg your pardon for my bad English.

    General Comment"tear a plane" The internet is funny, one miss heard lyrics & suddenly it's everywhere.

    Admittedly it doesn't make much more sense, but try inserting "Terraplane."
