Some people like to rock. Some people like to roll
But me, I like to sit around to satisfy my soul
I like my women short. I like my women tall
And that's about the only thing I really dig at all

I belong to the beat generation
I don't let anything boggle my mind
I belong to the beat generation
And everything's goin' just fine

Some people say I'm lazy and my life's a wreck
But that stuff doesn't faze me, I get unemployment checks
I run around in boots, drugs and booze I crave
And that's the way I wanna be when someone digs my grave

I belong to the beat generation, yeah
I don't let anything boggle my mind
I belong to the beat generation
When everything's goin' just fine

I once knew a man who worked from nine to five
Just to pay his monthly bills was why he stayed alive
So keep your country cottage, your house and lawn so green
I just want a one-room pad where I can make the scene

I belong to the beat generation
I don't let anything boggle my mind
Like-a, I belong to the beat generation
And everything's goin' just ducky
