Lyrics:

Plastic yellow raincoat (sandy mcknight) 2007

Used to wear a plastic yellow raincoat
didn't care, we all were in the same boat
used to ride on buses and on subways
never tired of going to church on sundays
but the world has gone through many changes
now most girls won't take candy from strangers
I don't mean to scuttle your illusions
but you seem befuddled by confusion

in the darkness people lose all reason
so be honest...what do you believe in?
It's not too late to try a new direction
the hands of fate rely on insurrection

i'll never believe in the stories our parents told
what a drag it is getting old
i'll never believe that there's only one way to live
and we've only so much to give
no, i'll never believe

mystery is all that lies before me
history will be my judge and jury
this is life, it's changing every minute
take a bite, don't worry 'bout what's in it

in the day you must have tried some new ways
but that's no way to justify your school days
I just found my plastic yellow raincoat
look around, we're still all in the same boat

i'll never believe that the world is all black and white
and the gray isn't worth the fight
i'll never believe there's no future for you and me
fear's our mutual enemy
i'll never believe that there's only one way to live
and we've only so much to give
no, i'll never believe
