  • Someday they won't let you, now you must agree
    The times they are a-telling, and the changing isn't free
    You've read it in the tea leaves, and the tracks are on tv
    Beware the savage jaw
    Of 1984

    They'll split your pretty cranium, and fill it full of air
    And tell that you're eighty, but brother, you won't care
    You'll be shooting up on anything, tomorrow's never there
    Beware the savage jaw
    Of 1984

    Come see, come see, remember me?
    We played out an all-night movie role
    You said it would last, but I guess we enrolled
    In 1984 (who could ask for more?)
    1984 (who could ask for more?)
    (More)

    I'm looking for a vehicle, I'm looking for a ride
    I'm looking for a party, I'm looking for a side
    I'm looking for the treason that I knew in '65
    Beware the savage jaw
    Of 1984

    Come see, come see, remember me?
    We played out an all-night movie role
    You said it would last, but I guess we enrolled
    In 1984 (who could ask for more?)
    1984 (who could ask for more?)
    (More)
