  • You heard that we were great
    But now you think we're lame
    Since you saw the show last night
    You hoped that we would rock
    Knock it up a notch
    Rockin' was nowhere in sight
    And its never good when it goes bad
    No one likes to feel like they've been had
    And it may be ok
    But you won't wear our t-shirts now
    Anymore
    First the band looked wired
    Then the band looked tired
    Sluggish and a little slow
    He's walking through the set
    As drunk as he could get
    And what the hell was wrong with joe?
    And you could tell the crowd was fading fast
    Every song we played looser than the last
    And it may be ok
    But you won't wear our t-shirts now
    All the kids, they hold a grudge
    Their minds are logged onto the net
    And all the kids, they hold a grudge
    You fail them and they won't forget it
    All the kids, they're tired and turn away
    They saw what you did
    You're all wrong and all the kids are right
    You heard that we were great
    But now you know we're lame
    Since you saw the show last night
    You hoped that we would rock
    You wished that we'd just stop
    And finally we said "good night"
    When we had returned for the encore
    You and half the room had headed for the door
    No one wanted more
    All the kids, they hold a grudge
    Their minds are logged onto the net
    And all the kids, they hold a grudge
    You fail them and they won't forget it

  • Koftheuds from AntiochHell yeah nick. Local H f’in kicks ass
  • Tj from Champaign, IlThe title is "All the Kids Are Right," not "All the Kids Were Right."
  • Seth from Simpsonville, Scnevermind, it's fixed now.
  • Seth from Simpsonville, Sctowards the end of the song after he sings " all the kids they hold a grudge, you've failed them and they wont forget" he sings something. I believe it is " all your cred wont save you from the kids" then it is "they saw what you did" that is left out on the lyrics on here...
  • Nick from Arlington Heights, IlThis song is about a band playing a bad show. Local H rules.
