lyrics

We believed in nature in the olden days,
and there were more trees in the olden days.
We had no worries in the olden days,
with no currency in the olden days.
We hunted and gathered in the olden days,
with no factories in the olden days.
Our God was still with us in the olden days,
and we all believed in the olden days.

But those good ‘ole days have all come and they’ve gone,
and our generation is what’s going on.
We’re doing our best and we’re singing our songs,
because this is our time and we’re what’s going on.

They didn’t have recycling in the olden days.
Everyone got raped in the olden days.
You died at age thirty in the olden days.
You were burned at the stake in the olden days.
We didn’t have healthcare in the olden days.
We couldn’t be gay in the olden days.
There was no future in the olden days.
Walked uphill both ways in the olden days.

But those bad ‘ole days have all come and they’ve gone,
and our generation is what’s going on.
We’re doing our best and we’re singing our songs,
because this is our time and we’re what’s going on.

The personal’s political, because this is our day.
Perception rules all, because this is our day.
We’ve got our nurture, because this is our day.
Progress plods on, because this is our day.
Don’t let them frame you, because this is our day.
Make something new, because this is our day.
The revolution is now, because this is our day.
It’s time to awake, because this is our day.
