There's gonna be a new race
Kids are gonna start it up
We're all gonna mutate
Kids are saying yeah hup

Yeah hup
Really gonna punch you out

We're sick of waking up late
Gotta get some control
The kids are gonna mutate
From an endless roll

Scared of circular time
It keeps faking us out
Kids are gonna eject
Cos now it's time to punch out

    General CommentThis song together with The Saint's "(I'm) Stranded" stand up proudly as Australia's two best classic punk rock anthems.

    General CommentThis song is fan-fucken-tastic! I love this song, the birdman's best. To me it's about rising up against people, but that's just me.

    General CommentGotta love this song! I saw a vid of them doing it live in 77' and they tore the roof off the place! It was played real fast and at the end they just smashed their shit and left the guitar wailing, leaning up against the stack. IMO they did a better version live than on record... I think that can be said of alot of the (punk) music in Australia/ UK/ USA around 1977..
