"Kids Don't Follow" as written by and Paul Westerberg....
Go home.....this is the Minneapolis police....the
party's over...if you all just grab your stuff &
leave there won't be any hassle..the party's been
closed....etc.


One, two, three, four

Kids won't listen
To what you're sayin'
Kids ain't wondering
Kids ain't praying
Mo says he's worried
He says talk away
He says yeah I've been cured

I need some attention
No house of detention
I'd love some attention
Don't start again

Kids don't need that
Kids don't want that
Kids don't need nothing of the kind
Kids don't follow

What you're doin'
In my face out my ear
Kids won't follow
What you're sayin
We can't hear

Can't stop looting
Can't stop smoking
Kids ain't wondering
Can't stop choking
Kids won't stand still
Kids won't shut up
Kids won't do it
You talk to 'em now

Kids don't follow
What you're doin'
In my face and out my ear
Kids won't follow
What you're saying
We can't hear

Kids won't follow
What you're saying
In my face out my ear
Kids don't follow
What you're sayin'
We can't hear
What you say
Not tomorrow
Not today

    General CommentThis song was written after Westerberg heard U2's song "I Will Follow". Allegedly, the voice saying f@#$ you to the cops was Soul Asylum's Dave Pirnier.

    General CommentGreat tune. There's a great band from Gainesville Florida called Radon that has a song called Minneapolis which im pretty sure is a tribute to The Mats. Definetly worth checking them out.
