I remember beatin' down the block was the thing
to do in my fisherman hat with the Kangaroo.
Everybody rap, thought they hood was Compton
and the wolves yelled (Oww) with a 6x9 rockin'.
I remember The Doors, I remember Live Aid, and
I remember every year Jerry Lewis got paid.
I remember shit live back when nobody missed it,
like Mike first doin' the moonwalk and spinnin'.
I remember hippies smokin' grass and fuckin',
disco dancin'. floor lights I'm cuttin'.
I remember Beatlemania seepin' the planet, All
the screamin' from hoes, I couldn't stand it.
I remember Bruce Lee, PS3 to Pong, spandex,
hair metal, rock love songs.
But everything's came and gone somehow,
I only ask you, what the fuck is happenin' now?

Chorus: x2
Nothin', let me know, Sure feels like nothin', let me know what.
Might be somthin' there. (what's good) I'm feelin'
nothin', let me know whats good.

I remember when The Twist was the thing to do.
Slap grease on your head and hoes hang with you.
I remember punk rock when it wasn't for sale, and
death metal scarin' people straight to hell.
So many cliques and crews to belong to, all
identified by the music they drawn to.
Check the status of your apparatus and then go,
nowadays, It ain't that clear though.
I remember when jazz was born in New Orleans.
Mom-and-pop record stores, I'd explore these.
I remember when you handed in a newer 8-track,
you got three old ones back. Dope.
I was at the first Woodstock, backstage, I smoked
a joint and dropped acid with Jimmy Paige.
I can't believe it's all over somehow. I only ask you,
what the fuck is happenin' now?

Chorus

I remember Led Zeppelin laid Stairway to Heaven.
I delivered a pizza to they studio session.
I was there when Beethoven went deaf and blind.
He just kept playin' like he ain't even mind it.
I sold pills to Elvis. He let me backstage. I stole
his guitar, later sold it on Ebay.
I can't believe it's all over somehow. I only ask you,
what the fuck is happenin' now?

Chorus x2

I only ask you, what the fuck is happenin' now?
