Alice Cooper Generation Landslide Lyrics

Last updated: 10/30/2011 11:00:00 AM

ladadadada Please clean your plate, dear, The lord above can see ya
Don't you know people are starving in Korea?
Alcohol and razorblades and poison and needles
Kindergarten people, they used 'em they need 'em
The over-indulgent machines were their children
There wasn't a way down on earth here to cool 'em
'Cause they looked just like humans at Kresges or Woolworth
But decadent brains were at work to destroy
Brats in battalions were ruling the streets saying
"Generation Landslide closed the gap between 'em"
And i laugh to myself at the men and the ladies
Who never could see those billions dollar babies

ladadadada Militant mothers, hiding in the basement
Using pots and pans as their shields and their helmets
Molotov milk bottles heaved from pink high-chairs
While mother's lib burned, birth certificate papers
Dad gets allowance from his sonny the dealer
Who's pubic to the world, but involved in high finance
Sister's out 'til five doing banker's son's hours
But she owns a Maserati that's a gift from his father
Stop at full speed at one hundred miles per hour
The Colgate invisible shield finally got 'em
And I laugh to myself at the men and the ladies
Who never could see those billion dollar babies ladadadada

I love this song! | Reviewer: slick willie | 8/11/09

This song has very funny lyrics, an underlying current of social commentary mixed with a sort of absurdity that I find entertainig. The music is arranged to emphasize the lyrics while weaving interesting musical passages in between vocal lines. Alice came up ith some great stuff on this song.
