And one day when i hear your children sing… freedom will ring, freedom will ring…

The Pretenders – Revolution

Cats like me and you have got laws

That they adhere to

 Laws outside the laws as laid down

 By those we don’t subscribe to

H L Menken - the law is a sort of hocus

 The world is gettin’ stranger

 But we’ll never lose heart

 We can’t just wait for the old guard to die

 Before we can make a new start

Old Guard 1

 Bring on the revolution

 Keep the pressure on

 I wanna die for something

 Bring on the revolution

 Wanna die for something

 Wanna die for something

 Bring on the revolution

 I wanna die for something

 Bring on the revolution

 Don’t wanna die for nothing

Talkin Bout a Revolution 6

So for every freedom fighter

 I wanna hold on tighter

 To the hope and will you gave

 You were the brave, you were the brave

Revolution 1

And one day

 When I hear your children sing

Talkin Bout a Revolution 8

Freedom will ring, freedom will ring

 Freedom

When we watch the children play

 Remember how the privileged classes grew

 And from this day you set out

 To undo what won’t undo

CHILDREN 2

Looking for the grand in the minute

Every breath justifies

 Every step that we take to remove what the powers that be can’t prove

 And the children will understand why

CHILDREN 1

 Keep the pressure on

 I wanna die for something

 Bring on a revolution

 Wanna die for nothing

 Bring on the revolution

 I wanna die for something
