  • Beatnik slacker hippie or a freak,
    Ain't it all the same thing all of us seek
    What our parents do, way back when?
    Makes me hear the same thing again and again.

    Generation Why,
    Generation Why.

    Baby boom or "X",
    I don't know what I am,
    All I need to know is when it's time to slam,
    Threw a little party cause it just felt right,
    It lasted ten years and it's goin' on tonight.

    Generation Why (Yeah!),
    Generation Why.
    It's the same way,
    It's the same way,
    It's the same way,
    It's the same way they treated you in your day!

    Generation "A" or Generation "Z",
    Who the hell are you to put a label on me?
    This label of the week is getting kinda lame,
    The more things change the more they stay the same.

    Generation Why (Yeah!),
    Generation Why.
    It's the same way,
    It's the same way,
    It's the same way,
    It's the same way they treated you in your day!
