Won't Get Fooled Again
Lyric Find ^ | ??? | The Who

Posted on 03/23/2018 11:42:07 AM PDT by NorthMountain

Won't Get Fooled Again
The Who

We'll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgment of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again

The change, it had to come
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fold, that's all
And the world looks just the same
And history ain't changed
Cause the banners, they are flown in the next war

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
No, no!

I'll move myself and my family aside
If we happen to be left half alive
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
Though I know that the hypnotized never lie
Do ya?

There's nothing in the streets
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
And the parting on the left
Are now parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again
No, no!

Yeah!

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss

What with the bullcrap budget and all, somehow I was reminded of this song.

If Trump signs this bill I’ll seriously need to consider continuing to support him.

He already signed it.

Now it’s time to wait for the wailing to end and see what’s next.

We must always remember...it isn't DJT fooling us.It's the Rat Party which is the main culprit.

Need proof? Read "Rules For Radicals".Study the life of Bill Ayers.

Trump had a choice. He made it. Second spending bill with no wall.

It's the Rat Party which is the main culprit.

The 'Rat Party does not have a majority in Congress. The President is not a 'Rat. I lay the blame about 45% on Ryan, 45% on McConnell, and 10% on Trump.

The song is a great rock and roll piece with Pete Townshend nailing it on the guitar, Keith Moon epic on the drums, John Entwistle amazing on bass, and Roger Daltrey belting out the vocals.

Unfortunately people continue to be fooled but we ain’t seen nothing yet. Before the end of the century, those who refuse Christ will be astonishingly deceived with strong delusion (2 Thessalonians 2:11).

The Rat party didn’t shove this bill down our throats. Mitch did.

I don't know how old you are but I'm old enough to remember 37 cent a gallon gas,dial telephones and draft cards (my draft board lady's name was Jeanette K Tice).Given my age I can guarantee you that you're at least partially wrong.

Study "Rules For Radicals" and get back to us.

What part of veto don’t you understand? What part of the White House was involved in this being put together do you not understand?

The concrete barrier to stop this was Trump. We found he was not concrete barrier.

Been there, done that. If you have something to say, say it. Right now, you look like a Repukelican Party apparatchik protecting your masters McTurtle and Ryno.

Only 10%. 75% is more like it. He was afraid to veto it.

Line item veto? Supremes ruled it unconstitutional.

Are you actually in Berlin (Germany)? Youtube claims that the video you linked is “not available in your [my] country”.

This one works in USA

Trump didn’t write that turkey. McTurtle and Ryno are culpable for that.

The 2016 election, in my opinion, had two themes:

1) Build the Wall!
2) Lock her up!

If the Republicans want my vote in November, they have to give me something. So far, I have a lot of “winning” but I don’t have either of the two things I really wanted.

I understand veto.What part of "there's absolutely *no* lie we won't tell and absolutely no filthy,unconstitutional stunt we won't employ to drive Trump from office" don't *you* understand?

It's said that Trump won the last shutdown fight.Even if that's true it's highly unlikely he'd win this one.

Sadly,DJT had no good options open to him...options that had any real chance of succeeding.The Rats are just too powerful at this time.Remember,while it's true that Reagan would have vetoed such a bill he carried 47 states and got 60% of the popular vote.

Ours is a country in,what I strongly fear,is an unstoppable decline.For proof just look at today's Rat Party...ILLary,Osama Obama,Bella Pelosi,Princess Liawatha.

Yes,I'm a pessimist.Yes,I'm damn glad that I'm far closer to the grave than to the cradle.I weep for the kids of this country...their middle age and later years will be much,much worse than mine.

And yes,it was my generation (Baby Boomers) who started this ball careening downhill.
