Us Kids Cold
(Riff Regan, Steve Voice, Dave Wight, Jon Moss)

There’s a man on the television
Talking out loud
About the things that we say
And what we’re all about
And on the other end
Sitting all at home alone
Mr Joe Public saying
‘Well what can be done?’

I know who you’re on about
I saw them in our street
If they joined the army
They’d be put right in one week
Now is it too much to ask
After all that we’ve been through
That a little bit of respect?

I’m not talking about generations
I’m not talking about getting old
I’ve had enough of your accusations
’Cos you leave us, us kids cold

The woman in the shop is going on and on and on
About clothes that we wear and what’s got to be done
And on the other end, listening to her lot
Mrs Jo Public saying
‘Well how can it be stopped?’

I know who you’re on about
’Cos only yesterday
I saw them in our street
And I had to get out of their way
Is it too much to ask
After all that we’ve been through
That a little bit of respect?

I’m not talking about generations
I’m not talking about getting old
I’ve had enough of your accusations
’Cos you leave us, us kids cold

All we ever hear is confrontation
Everybody’s got to have a different role
We’re never gonna get communication
When you leave us kids cold
Oh yes you do
When you leave us kids cold?

I’m not talking about generations
I’m not talking about getting old
I’ve had enough of your accusations
’Cos you leave us, us kids cold

There’s a guy on the radio
Won’t leave his name
He goes on and on and on and on
About who’s to blame
And on the other end getting all kind of proud
Mr phone-in talks to four million minds aloud

I know who you’re on about
I read it in my paper today
We’ll have to take some action
’Cos sooner or later one way
Is it too much to ask
After all that we’ve been through
That a little bit of respect?

I’m not talking about generations
I’m not talking about getting old
I’ve had enough of your accusations
’Cos you leave us, us kids cold

All you ever hear is confrontation
Everybody’s got to have a different role
We’re never gonna get communication
When you leave us kids cold
Oh yes you do
When you leave us kids cold
I’m telling you
When you leave us kids cold
It’s up to you
When you leave us kids cold
