We were cheering in the streets,
With our children at our feet,
And we thought our worshiped morals all had won.
But the men who spurred us on
Still control what’s going on.
They decide and politicians sing the song.

We thought we’d started a new revolution,
Revived what’s left of our torn constitution,
Cried with joy on that November night,
But in the clear light of day,
It’s just like yesterday,
So now we’re down on our knees to say,
We DID get fooled again,
DID get fooled again.

Change it had to come,
We hoped it all along.
But the faces on the stage just changed, that’s all.
And the system’s just the same,
And history ain’t changed,
‘Cause the wars and bribes and secrecy go on.

We thought we’d started a new revolution,
Revived what’s left of our torn constitution,
Cried with joy on that November night,
But in the clear light of day,
It’s just like yesterday,
So now we’re down on our knees to say,
We DID get fooled again,
DID get fooled again.
Yes, Yes!

We’ll move our hopes and our ideals aside
If we happen to be left half alive.
Forget all our dreams and smile at the sky,
For we know that our leaders never lie.
Do ya?

Now there’s nothing in the street
Looks any different to me,
And the promises were all broken on the way.
And the policies of the Dems
Are like the policies of the Right,
And the lies have just continued every day.

We thought we’d started a new revolution,
Revived what’s left of our torn constitution,
Cried with joy on that November night,
But in the clear light of day,
It’s just like yesterday,
So now we’re down on our knees to say,
We DID get fooled again,
DID get fooled again.
Yes, Yes!

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Meet the new boss,
Same as the old boss!
