"Children of the Revolution" as written by and Marc Bolan....



You can bump and grind.

Have a good time.

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.



You can tell a plane, in the falling rain.

I gotta rolls royce,

cause its good for my voice,

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

No you won't fool the children of the revolution.



You can bump and grind.

Feeling fine.

You can twist and shout.

Knock yourself out, but you won't fool the children of the revolution.

No you won't fool the children of the revolution.

No you can't fool the children of the revolution.

No you won't fool the children of the revolution.

No you can't fool the children of the revolution.

No you won't fool the children of the revolution.



You can bump and grind, have a good time.

You can bump and grind, have a good time.



Bump and grind, have a good time.

    General CommentNO COMMENTS!?! Granted, this song has a different style than their previous stuff, but still a great song. It's a cover of T. Rex's Children of the Revolution. This version is better. The Femmes rock!

    My InterpretationAn optimistic anticipation of balance!

    I reckon this song is a condemning wealthy and powerful people, warning that the 'high' times aren't going to last as there will be no escaping a revolution.

    But the "enjoy it while you can" message is definitely caustic and should serve to undermine the integrity of such people.
