Pete Atkin sings

by Clive James and Pete Atkin,
from The Lakeside Sessions, Vol.1

What was it like? goes the cry on every tongue
Of the new generation, the younger than the young
How did it feel when the first rock and roll songs were sung?
'As good as you've heard' is the one thing we can say

And everyone thought the reign of peace was on its way
Think of that now as you in your turn live the day
Of youth
As disappointment leads us to the truth
