There is a man in a shiny suit he’s saying
“Get them off the streets and into the schools”
But he looks pretty dull he’s got a middle aged spread
And he could never understand what’s going on in my head
But I’ll get him tonight, I’ll teach him a lesson alright
I’m gonna smash my Telecaster 
Through the television screen
‘Because I don’t like what’s going down
I got the rights, I got the rights
I’ve got the ticket and the buck stops here

Devaluation on the network news
Rock ‘n’ Roll heroes with the rich mans blues
It don’t really matter if the future looks bleak
Cos I never see more than a tenner a week
Can’t afford their records so I steal them when I can
Watch out for that guitar there
Wham bam bam

So here I am, just watch me now
I’ve got a new band
It’s the victim and the weapon this guitar in my hand
Greta Garbage Trashcans playing hard and fast
Things are looking good at last
Don’t call me blank generation
I’m doin’ the best that I can
