Lyrics Post: “Baba O’Riley”

A LONG time ago I was introduced to this band. An old friend who I’m in touch with still today — though admittedly, not as frequently as I’d like — was the one who opened my eyes. Since then, I’ve seen “for miles and miles…”, and so still appreciate the energy and creative sound that was, IS, The Who.

Please enjoy…

“Baba O’Riley” by The Who

“Out here in the fields
I farm for my meals
I get my back into my living
I don’t need to fight
To prove I’m right
I don’t need to be forgiven

Don’t cry
Don’t raise your eye
It’s only teenage wasteland

Sally, take my hand
Travel south cross land
Put out the fire
Don’t look past my shoulder
The exodus is here
The happy ones are near
Let’s get together
Before we get much older

Teenage wasteland
It’s only teenage wasteland
Teenage wasteland
Oh, oh
Teenage wasteland
They’re all wasted!”
