You're only in the juniors
But you've got a social conscience and mind
The world could be lovely
If only people had the time

Although you mean well
You are just a boy
Despite the social clime
You're not a Trotsky of our time
You're not a Trotsky of our time

We know you're no genius
You've got 'CND' written on your clothes
The teachers think you're a weirdo
And always give you hard times

You feel the pressure of a young pricipled mind
But one day for sure you'll find
You cannot get a perfect deal
You cannot live a man's ideal

You want to be a hero
And save everyone
And though that's not happening
You still dream a small boy's dream

They say it's all a pasttime
Just a childish fad
But one day you will show them
You believe in all mankind

You've only read about it
In books from the library van
And though it may not be a crime
You're not a Trotsky of our time
You're not a Trotsky of our time
You're not a Trotsky of our time
You're not a Trotsky of our time
No, you're not a Trotsky of our time
