Thatcher Fucked The Kids
Frank Turner

Capo 3

VERSE 1

EWhatever happened to childhood?
AWe're all scared of the kids in our neighboorhood
C#mThey're not small, charming and harmless,
F# A EThey're a violent bunch of bastard little shits.
EAnd anyone who looks younger than me
AMakes me check for my wallet, my phone and my keys,
C#mAnd I'm tired of being tired out
F# A EAlways being on the lookout for thieving gits.
CHORUS
A B F#mWe're all wondering how we ended up so scared
A B F#mWe spent ten long years teaching our kids not to care
A B F#mAnd that "there's no such thing as society" anyway,
A EAnd all the rich folks act surprised
A EWhen all sense of community dies,
A E F#m ABut you just closed your eyes to the other side of all the things that she did.
B EThatcher fucked the kids.
VERSE 2
E And it seems a little bit rich to me,
A The way the rich only ever talk of charity
C#mIn times like the seventies, the broken down economy
F# A EMeant even the upper tier was needing some help.
EBut as soon as things look brighter,
AYeah the grin gets wider and the grip gets tighter,
C#mAnd for every teenage tracksuit mugger
F# A EThere's a guy in a suit who wouldn't lift a finger for anybody else.
CHORUS
A B F#mWe're all wondering how we ended up so scared
A B F#mWe spent ten long years teaching our kids not to care
A B F#mAnd that "there's no such thing as society" anyway,
A EAnd all the rich folks act surprised
A EWhen all sense of community dies,
A E F#m ABut you just closed your eyes to the other side of all the things that she did.
B EThatcher fucked the kids.
BRIDGE
C#m G#You've got a generation raised on the welfare state,
A EEnjoyed all its benefits and did just great,
F#m C#mBut as soon as they were settled as the richest of the rich,
A BThey kicked away the ladder, told the rest of us that life's a bitch.
C#m G#And it's no surprise that all the fuck-ups
A EDidn't show up until the kids had grown up.
F#m C#mBut when no one ever smiles or ever helps a stranger,
A B EIs it any fucking wonder our society's in danger of collapse?
VERSE 3
E So all the kids are bastards,
A But don't blame them, yeah, they learn by example.
C#m Blame the folks who sold the future for the highest bid
F# A EThat's right, Thatcher fucked the kids.
