  • I'm sick of all this waiting
    And people telling me
    What I should be
    What if I'm not so crazy
    Maybe you're the one
    Who's wrong not me

    So what'cha gonna do
    What'cha gonna say
    When we're standing on top
    And do it our way
    You say we got no future
    You're living in the past
    So listen up
    That's my generation

    Hey ho, let's go
    It's going down tonight
    Hey ho, let's go
    We're gonna do it
    Till we die
    Hey ho, let's go
    Cause I, I
    I've got no reason
    To apologize
    That's my generation

    I don't need to say
    I'm sorry
    I do what everybody
    Wants to do
    It's not so complicated
    Because I know you want
    The same thing too

    So what'cha gonna do
    What'cha gonna say
    When we're standing on top

    And do it our way
    You say we got no future
    You're living in the past
    So listen up
    That's my generation

    Hey ho, let's go
    It's going down tonight
    Hey ho, let's go
    We're gonna do it
    Till we die
    Hey ho, let's go
    Cause I, I
    I've got no reason
    To apologize
    That's my generation

    Don't need to say
    I'm sorry
    It's not so complicated
    Cause I know you want
    The same thing too

    Hey ho, let's go
    It's going down tonight
    Hey ho, let's go
    We're gonna do it
    Till we die
    Hey ho, let's go
    Cause I, I
    I've got no reason
    To apologize
    That's my generation

    Hey ho, let's go
    It's going down tonight
    Hey ho, let's go
    We're gonna do it
    Till we die
    Hey ho, let's go
    Cause I, I
    I've got no reason
    To apologize
    That's my generation Writer/s: ARNOLD LANNI, CHARLES-ANDRE COMEAU, MAX MARTIN, NATE HILLS, PIERRE BOUVIER
