The Kids Don't Get It - Lyrics

Pin It Now!





Last played: 2013/02/12 Sault Ste. Marie, ON
Debut: 2006/10/17 Toronto, ON
Album: World Container (2006)
Notes: TKDGI made its debut like many of the 'World Container' songs at the Horseshoe Tavern on Queen St. West in Toronto right before the big 2007 'World Container Tour' where it received extensive play. It only made 2 appearances between then and 2011. Once in 2008 and it was a 'one-timer' on the 2009 'WATS Tour'. Kids came back in a big way on the festival circuit in the summer of 2011 and was featured steadily throughout the 'Now For Plan A Tour'. If you fall into the category of one who gets a little bothered by ' Screaming Gord' , this one is not for you....


You said, ‘If I ask you a question,
are you gonna lie to me?’
I said, ‘honey, is that your question?
cuz honey, that one’s easy’
cuz half the truth is, just how much there is
The kids don’t get it
No. The kids don’t get it

I’m gonna be an expert stranger,
better than the giant squid
I’m gonna leave the stranger experts
scratching their heads, saying, ‘how’d he do it?!’
When half the truth is, just how hard it is
But the kids don’t get it
No. The kids won’t get it

I’ll be the antlers and I’ll be the elk
I’ll be the right whale and I’ll be parallel
The kids don’t get it
That’s right, kids don’t get it

I’ll feel more than human when the work’s hitting home
I’ll be aped by my ancestors. I’ll state the plan as my own
I’ll be gripping the city, I’ll be hitting the town
You’ll say. ‘I’d be hurt if you didn’t, when I come around’
That’s right, kids don’t get it

I’ll be as careless as you are certain.
I’ll get outta my own way
I’ll stop to cry into the curtains
and like the greats, before me, go on stage
And if half-true its, good enough for this
cuz the kids don’t get it
No. The kids don’t get it
If I ask you a question,
ya gonna lie to me?
Ah honey is that your question?
cuz that one’s easy

Kids don’t get it
Just how hard it is
Kids don’t get it
Just how much there is


Next song: Pretend
Previous song: Luv (sic)
