Generation Sex

Live version (3:25)

Generation sex
The rights
Of girls
Who want to take their clothes off.
As long as we can all watch
That’s okay.
Generation sex
The type
Of guys
You wouldn’t leave your kids with
And shouts “off with their heads” if
They get laid.

Lovers watch their backs
As hacks
In Macs
Take snaps.
Through telephoto lenses
They chase Mercedes Benz’
Through the night.
A mourning nation weeps
And wails
But keeps
The sales
Of evil tabloids healthy.
The poor protect the wealthy
In this world.

Well, generation sex Generation sex
The sperm
Of worms
Into the eggs of field-mice
So you can look real nice
For the boys
And generation sex
Is me
And you
And we
Should really all know better
It really doesn’t matter
What you say.

Neil: Thank you!
