Thatcher Fucked The Kids
Frank Turner

Capo 3

VERSE 1

E
Whatever happened to childhood?
A
We're all scared of the kids in our neighboorhood
C#m
They're not small, charming and harmless,
          F#                 A              E
They're a violent bunch of bastard little shits.
E
And anyone who looks younger than me
A
Makes me check for my wallet, my phone and my keys,
C#m
And I'm tired of being tired out
        F#             A                   E
Always being on the lookout for thieving gits.


CHORUS
            A                B           F#m
We're all wondering how we ended up so scared
            A                B                    F#m
We spent ten long years teaching our kids not to care
                  A                  B         F#m
And that "there's no such thing as society" anyway,
             A                  E
And all the rich folks act surprised
           A                 E
When all sense of community dies,
               A                      E             F#m                     A
But you just closed your eyes to the other side of all the things that she did.
B                    E
Thatcher 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#m
In times like the seventies, the broken down economy
      F#              A                     E
Meant even the upper tier was needing some help.

        E
But as soon as things look brighter,
          A
Yeah the grin gets wider and the grip gets tighter,
         C#m
And for every teenage tracksuit mugger
           F#                          A                        E
There's a guy in a suit who wouldn't lift a finger for anybody else.


CHORUS
            A                B           F#m
We're all wondering how we ended up so scared
            A                B                    F#m
We spent ten long years teaching our kids not to care
                  A                  B         F#m
And that "there's no such thing as society" anyway,
             A                  E
And all the rich folks act surprised
           A                 E
When all sense of community dies,
               A                      E             F#m                     A
But you just closed your eyes to the other side of all the things that she did.
B                    E
Thatcher fucked the kids.


BRIDGE
              C#m                        G#
You've got a generation raised on the welfare state,
  A                           E
Enjoyed all its benefits and did just great,
        F#m                                C#m
But as soon as they were settled as the richest of the rich,
        A                                                        B
They 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                       E
Didn't show up until the kids had grown up.
          F#m                        C#m
But when no one ever smiles or ever helps a stranger,
       A                        B                       E
Is 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                   E
That's right, Thatcher fucked the kids.
