But you grow up and you clam down,  Working for the clampdown
A         D       G        A                         D    A
You start wearing Blue and Brown and working for the clampdown
D                     G                          D   A
So you got someone to boss around  make you feel big now
D                   G                              D    A
You drift until you brutilize you  made your first kill now
A        D        G        A                       D    A
In these days of evil presidentes  working for the clampdown
A                 D         G              A                    D    A
