Mob Mentality
[This song is done by 'McBusiness' which is a combination of the Dropkick Murphys and the Business]

Styles and opinions change faster than the world
For plastic punks seeking teenage pleasure
You donít know what it is to earn your pay
What do you know about the scene today

I see youíre living in a mob mentality

Wanna be a working class old school
Youíre A deadhead around the block
Thinking youíre one of the mob
Youíve only been around since Ď92
Nirvana Offspring Green Day too

I see youíre living in a mob mentality
What do you fucking know
You best get ready for a forced reality
Can you stand on your own

Skinheads on the web page punks on the net
You know what itís about well I think you forget
Chocking on your greed is the price you pay
What do you know about the scene today

I see youíre living in a mob mentality
I see youíre living in a mob mentality
What do you fucking know
You best get ready for a forced reality
Can you stand on your ownback to top
Informer
[Originally by The Business]

Why'd you give him 18 years
Leave a family drowning in tears
Baby boy baby girl
Now their lives a living hell

Some say it shouldn't be done
But life on the dole ain't no fun
Shouldnít have been done
Youíre an informer

You didn't have to name him to the law
Just trying to stop from being poor
Hopes the kids will pull through
Without a dad coz of you

Some say it shouldn't be done
But life on the dole ain't no fun
Shouldnít have been done
Youíre an informerback to top
Going Strong
There's a brand new century about to begin and the kids
of the 90's are paving' the path, for the youth of America,
free at last from the violence and destruction that destroyed our name,
whenever there was trouble we took the blame.
But now our scene's alive with a new generation of American kids.

[Chorus:]
We work hard now lets enjoy the fruits of what we've done, tomorrow may never come.
The kids on the street will have their say now - Because!

We've had enough of these negative comparisons a new breed of kids.
Brought together by a movement and a sense of tradition the strong will survive.
And together our backs can never be broken cause now our scene's alive
with a new generation of American kids.

[Chorus]back to top
Keep the Faith
[Originally by The Business]

But for you where would they be
In a society claiming democracy
Nothing in the press or the radio
Only the fanzines that give em the go

So keep the faith
Weíll break though one day
Keep the faith
Our musicís here to stay

TV pundits total lies
All the people that we despise
Come on tour and you will see
Street music as it should be

So keep the faith
Weíll break though one day
Keep the faith
Our musicís here to stay

Radio stations chosen playlists
Say that itís just the way it is
They only have their financial say
From the profits punk will payback to top
Freedom
Freedom

Same old story, nothings changed.
Only the rules have been rearranged.
You treat the losers commodity.
Act to someone yourself by day to day

What's going on?
What's going on?
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom

Blinded by ex-cons ready made
Net to a hero's own, nothing paid
Ex-murderers up in a tree
Let's start a drink called Anarchy

Chorus

Repeat Freedom ‚Äėtil the endback to top
Boys on the Docks
Chorus:
Say hey johnny boy, the battle call United we stand, divided we fall
Together we are what we can't be alone We came to this country you
made it our home

This man so humble, this man so brave A legend to many, he fought to
his grave Saved family and friends from the hardship and horror In a
land of depression he gave hope for tomorrow

Say johnny boy this ones for you With the strength of many and the
courage of few To what do we owe this man who's fight Was for the
masses, he gave his life

chorus

Say hey johnny boy, the battle call United we stand, divided we fall
Together we are what we can't be alone We came to this country you
made it our home

A friend to the locals who dabbled in crime He'd give you a job
and he'd give you his time He wasn't a crook but he couldn't be
conned John knew the difference between right and wrong Say johnny
me boy, you live hear no longer Others forgotten, your memories stronger
Lets drink to the causes in your life Your family, your friends,
the union, your wife

chorus

Say hey johnny boy, the battle call United we stand, divided we fall
Together we are what we can't be alone We came to this country you
made it our home

And the boys on the docks needed john for sure When they came to this
country he opened the door He said men I'll tell ya they don't like our
kind Though it starts with a fist it must end with your mind

chorus

Say hey johnny boy, the battle call united we stand, divided we fall
Together we are what we can't be alone We came to this country you
made it our homeback to top
The Kids Are Alright
[Originally by The Who]

I don't mind other guys dancing with my girl
That's fine, I know them all pretty well
But I know sometimes I must get out in the light
Better leave her behind with the kids, they're alright
The kids are alright

Sometimes, I feel I gotta get away
Bells chime, I know I gotta get away
And I know if I don't, I'll go out of my mind
Better leave her behind with the kids, they're alright
The kids are alright

I know if I go things would be a lot better for her
I had things planned, but her folks wouldn't let her

I don't mind other guys dancing with my girl
That's fine, I know them all pretty well
But I know sometimes I must get out in the light
Better leave her behind with the kids, they're alright
The kids are alright

Sometimes, I feel I gotta get away
Bells chime, I know I gotta get away
And I know if I don't, I'll go out of my mind
Better leave her behind with the kids, they're alright
The kids are alrightback to top
Knock Me Down
[Originally by The Outlets]

Waiting for the while
Will she ring my dial
Canít stay out past eight
Bored out all the rest

She knows where her heart goes

She thinks Iím a jerk
Taught her dirty words
Sweat and bake and heal
Is my timing real

She knows where her heart goes

Knock me down againback to top
