           E                         A                      B
I'm gonna pack up my troubles in my old kit-bag, I'm gonna run a mile from here
           E                   A                     B
'Cos the ASBO generation make this a terror nation full of loathing and fear
           A
All the bleary-eyed boys getting high on the low street
           E
While the girls lift clothes down the high street and they say,
 A                          B                               Cm
"Yeah I know, I know it's wrong but I can't be bothered to pay,
                       B                     A
I got the money but I need it for my dealer today."
                                           B
And her friends are all the same and they know it's not right
     Cm                  B
But they were promised more from this life

     E                   A
And they will steal and they will fight
                  B
Because there's nothing for the kids to do today
      E                   A
And they will haunt the streets at night
                   B
Because there's nothing for the kids to do today

   E                      A                   B
Shaun has an ASBO, he's only fourteen, he's tired and he's bored with the local police
           E                     A
"They're pricks," he says, "I didn't get a second chance,
       B
They didn't ask why I did it"
      A
The pigs p 'n' c'in for puttin up his hood
          E
and paedophiles playing his neck of the woods,
              A                     B                                  
 Cm
He's got no safety in numbers, his ASBO won't allow him to be hanging around in gangs
 B                            A
What is he to do? He's been kicked out of school
                                    B
What a way to fix a fool, we are failing our youth
 Cm                            B
Parents and governors can you handle the truth?


     E                   A
And they will steal and they will fight
                  B
Because there's nothing for the kids to do today
      E                   A
And they will haunt the streets at night
                   B
Because there's nothing for the kids to do today

There's nothing for the kids to do

  E                   A
Who's to blame? The mainstream media?
       B
Our rulers and idols get greedier and seedier
 E                          A
They're an embarrassment, they should be shamed
          B
For misguiding our youth, they're the ones to blame
 A                  B                            A            
            E
They sit back and watch the evil grow from the youth club ruins where the kids used to go
 A                                      B
Take parts of Salford in Manchester, dying on its feet
            Cm                       B
While the players at United get a hundred grand a week
     E
The kids love them anyway, it don't make sense
           A
When you have a go at me for the sake of fifty pence
                             Cm              B          E     
              A
Especially when some of you so called "poor kids" have got the money for a digital camcorder
         B
And the time to film a girl whilst you spit-roast her
     E                           A
You hang about the park but you don't play football
       B
You trouble me for money 'cos you've got to make a drug call (?)
A                                          E                           
                      A                     B
You've got time, you've got money but you wrap it in a joint 'cos you don't see the 
in using your time for making your
             Cm
dreams come true
                                B                   A
You're all too busy trying to lose our respect for you

Why're you proud to be rude?
             B
You're just trying to be cool in front of your mates
        Cm                           B
That's all that really matters when you're living in hate


     E                   A
And they will steal and they will fight
                  B
Because there's nothing for the kids to do today
      E                   A
And they will haunt the streets at night
                   B
Because there's nothing for the kids to do today


A                                                   B
Why do you wanna grow up, why do you wanna grow so fast and throw your youth away?
A                          B
Don't throw your youth away and don't let me hear you say
               E
That there's nothing for the kids to do today

There's plenty for the kids to do today
         Cm
There's so much for the kids to do
