Alice Cooper – Generation Landslide lyrics

Please clean your plate dear, the Lord above can see ya

Don’t you know people, are starving in Korea

Alcohol and razor blades 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 look just like humans, at Kresges and Woolworths

But decadent brains were at work to destroy

Brats in battalions, were ruling the street scene

Generation landslide, closed the gap between ’em

And I laugh to myself at the men and the ladies

Who never conceived of the billion dollar babies

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 Mothers’ Lib burned, birth certificate papers

Dad gets his 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

Stopped at full speed at one hundred miles per hour

The Colgate invisible shield finally got ’em

But I laugh to myself at the men and the ladies

Who never conceived of the billion dollar babies
