lyrics

Hegemony, hegemony
You are the fairest creature
You are the fairest creature that ever I did see
And it's all for monopoly
On all those pretty sex symbols
That rot and raze the nation
The capacity for change

[AN HONEST DAY'S PAY FOR AN HONEST DAY'S WORK
YOU CAN'T CHANGE HUMAN NATURE
DON'T BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU]

Hegemony, hegemony
You are the foulest...
You are the foulest creature that ever bore a race,
You can generate and dissipate
But only very stupidly
For such it is the splendour
Of popular control

[SOME ARE BORN TO LEAD AND SOME ARE BORN TO FOLLOW
A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING IN ITS PLACE]

How do you do it?
How can you do this to me?
When all you are is ordinary, it's pretty common sense -
You are natural, immutable,
And everyone excuses you
As common sense - and common sense
Is things just as they are

[ROCK AND ROLL IS HERE TO STAY
BUT CAN YOU DANCE TO IT?
WALK IT LIKE YOU TALK IT
BE THERE OR BE SQUARE]
