The Kids

HAH!
Now we're getting nasty!

Everybody's talking 'bout the kids!
The kids got funky soul and groove emotion,
But if you don't give the kids the chance to use it,
Well they're always more than likely to abuse it.
Everybody's talking 'bout the kids!
It's taken time for you to realise,
Now hunger turns to anger in our eyes.
I say the revolution will be televised.
Ah-yes it will.

Everybody's talking 'bout the kids!
The kids need space to get their heads in place,
Oh and every day this world they have to face.
But I just can't seem to find my proper place,
'Cause it's like this...

(Chorus)
    Kids get down
    Stormy weather
    Fifteen years
    Of royal pleasure
    Watch me now.           (Watch me now)
    Kids get down
    Underground
    Everybody dance to the funky sound.
    Watch me now.
    Because the kids got funky soul.

Everybody's talking 'bout the kids!
It won't be long before we get our own
And every kid can truly feel at home.
I told you you should give the dog a bone.
(Give the dog a bone.)
Everybody's talking 'bout school!
But I get more pleasure breaking all the rules
'Cause lesson one begins with ‘life is cruel',
Well I guess I'm just an educated fool.         (Ah-ha-ha)

Everybody's talking 'bout the kids!
Mum and dad make efforts to excuse it.
Government officials will confuse it.
Members of the bench will try to prove it.
You goin' down, sucker!

  Everybody's talking 'bout the kids now,
  Everybody's talking 'bout the kids now,
  Everybody's talking 'bout the
  Everybody's talking 'bout the
  Everybody's talking 'bout the kids now.
  Everybody's talking,
  Hear them people talking about the kids,
  The kids got funky soul,
  Come on now!

The kids got funky soul.
You know the kids got funky soul yeah.
I said the kids got funky soul,
Ooh, the kids got funky soul yeah.

(Chorus)
    Kids get down
    Stormy weather
    Fifteen years
    Of royal pleasure.
    Watch me now.           (Watch me)
    Kids get down
    Celebrate,
    Now we're gonna kick
    The thing we hate.
    Watch me now.
    Because the kids got funky soul.

Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha, ha!
You know the kids got funky soul yeah.
Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha, ha, ha!
I say the kids got funky soul yeah.

  Everybody's talking 'bout the kids now
  Everybody's talking 'bout the kids now
  Everybody's talking 'bout the
  Everybody's talking 'bout the
  Everybody's talking 'bout the
  Everybody's talking 'bout the
  Everybody's talking 'bout the
  Everybody's talking 'bout the kids now. Hey,

  Keep on talking yeah,
  Gonna keep on moving yeah,
  Gotta keep on grooving yeah,
  Gonna keep on talking yeah,
  Keep o-on,
  Keep on moving yeah.

Everybody's talking 'bout high!
But kids get high to satisfy,
From reaching out to touch the sky
Is all I can identify,
And you know why?

(Chorus)
    Kids get down
    Stormy weather
    Fifteen years
    Of royal pleasure
    Watch me now.
    Kids get down
    Celebrate
    Now we're gonna kick
    The thing we hate
    Watch me now.           (Watch me!)

    Kids get down
    Pressurised
    To live the life
    That you devise.
    Watch me now.
    Kids get down
    Celebrate
    Life's too short
    To complicate.
    Watch me now.
    'Cause the kids got funky soul...
