everybody's talking 'bout the
new direction rock and roll is
heading and the debut albums
coming every day
i am very happy just to
know i'm taken care of when it
comes to satisfaction in the
records that i play
1980's coming, don't you
feel it are you smart enough to
take it and accept it as a
renaissance of change
are you keeping up with all the
fever and the pace of every
musical involvement today, i say

new wave
dick clark meets stanley kubrick
don kirshner don't you like
new wave
electric underground
that just wants to be loved, yeah

everybody labels it and
uses it to wipe their ass
they criticize the lack of
expertise it has to show
then again there are some folks who
listen to it every chance they
get just to escape from
all the barry manilows
david bowie started it and
roxy music strengthened it and
now the latest incarnation's
eno and devo
ten or twenty years from now
i hope r.stevie moore will be
included in the list of telling
music where to go

new wave
bill haley's great great grandson
listens to trouser press
new wave
electric avant garde that
just wants to be purchased, yeah

i'm the only one i know who
feels so much regard for
XTC and talking heads and
the ramones and robert fripp
i don't have the time for anything
but 10cc and residents and johnny rotten
and i can't forget cheap trick
anybody listening can
understand ambition but i'm
going just a little overboard
with this whole trip
how it means so much to me
how little it must mean to you
the future is depending on the hip (eat shit!)

new wave
what's wrong with robert stigwood
he should adore the trend
new wave
recorded suicide that
just wants to live
