(Ch)
There’s life in us, if you know what I mean.
If you know what I mean, just no trampoline.
There’s life in us, if you know what I mean,
But the world’s not the same as when I was a teen.

(1)
I’d tell you, young lad, all the places I’ve been,
And the many inventions in my day I’ve seen.
But computers and keycards and new-fangled things,
Well, I don’t understand them; they’re just not my scene.

(Ch)

(2)
Once the milk came from cows, and the rivers were clean,
And we sat by a fire and spoke of our dreams.
But now fires are banned, and our milk’s from some bean!
Well, it isn’t for me man, it’s just not my scene.

(Ch)

(3)
I used to be healthy with plenty of steam.
Though my mind is still active, my body’s not keen.
And I struggle with loneliness, friends are unseen.
Well, I don’t understand it, it’s this same old scene.

(Ch)

(4)
Progression is halted, employment is lean.
We’ve got lots of experience, we built the machine.
But wisdom and knowledge, they’re useless has-beens
When compared to the labour as cheap as a teen.
