  • Tell them in the city,
    Tell them near and far,
    This generation coming up,
    Are gonna be proud of who they are,
    So you've got to lend an ear,
    Hear what they've got to say,
    Maybe you could understand,
    Your way is not the only way.

    Cause this generation,
    Is gonna walk with their heads held high,
    I know this generation is gonna,
    Bring tears to the old man's eyes.

    Mamma said just be proud,
    And hold your head up high,
    Cause what you've got is a precious thing,
    Money just can't buy,
    no way no no,
    So you can tell your father,
    You can tell your ma
    There's a new age coming into town
    And a new future might not be far.

    Cause this generation,
    Is gonna walk with their heads held high,
    I know this generation is gonna,
    Bring tears to the old man's eyes.

    A woo hoo a woo hoo talking 'bout this generation,
    A woo hoo a woo hoo talking 'bout this generation

    So you can tell your father,
    And you can tell your ma,
    There's a new age coming into town,
    Then your future might not be far.

    Cause this generation,
    Is gonna walk with their heads held high,
    I know this generation is gonna,
    Bring tears to the old man's eyes,
    Cause this generation,
    Is gonna walk with their heads held high,
    Oh this generation is gonna,
    Bring tears to the old man's eyes.

    A woo hoo a woo hoo talking about this generation,
    A woo hoo a woo hoo talking about this generation,
    Can't you see that I oh I talking about this generation,
    Can't you see that I oh I talking about this generation,
    Can't you see that I oh I talking about this generation. Writer/s: ANDREW SYLVESTER RICHARD ROACHFORD
