Originally performed by The Who. This is a unique treatment by Cleveland Watkiss, Larry Bartley and Jonathan Gee with Steve Williamson. Breathing a different life into a classic song to create a classic album.



People try to put us d-down
Just because we get around
Things they do look awful c-c-cold
I hope I die before I get old

My generation
This is my generation, baby

Why don't you all f-fade away
Don't try to dig what we all s-s-say
I'm not trying to cause a big s-s-sensation
I'm just talkin' 'bout my g-g-generation
My generation
This is my generation, baby
