Now this is how I feel when I put on an old record
One of the good ones that will sweep you along
To a primitive world of straight-forward repression
And of text-book rebellion, true or false, right and wrong
You know that kind of song...

They leave a dull life in safety
For the freedom they find as they're roaming around
All that rock'n roll bull, all that chest-beating bluster
All that lonely wolf lingo that sounds so silly now
It sounds so silly now

All the luxury grievance of a spoilt generation
All their smug vain laments make the world seem okay
And I guess that Neil Young could be your Spencer Tracy
I suppose Joni Mitchell could be my Doris Day
In the darkest of days

We know nothing about them now but they will come
Trust them to come
The darkest of days
You know nothing about them now but they will come
And I will need my Doris Day
