Lyrics

Out here in the fields
I fight 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 crossland
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!

    Alright, I just made a mixed playlist with this song and a few others on iTunes, and I have to tell you guys about it. I put the song "Get It Poppin'" by Fat Joe right after Baba O'Riley, and the fade between the two songs is so awesome. It works out perfectly, which is really weird. You have to try this if you have iTunes.

    quote: "it is a great song, the guitar intro is great, i also like that they play it at New York Yankee Games before the players come out on the field, it gives me chills....I am a die hard yankee fan"

    Y'know, I'm European but when visited NYC, we went to Yankees game and I was shocked. My mom gave me strange look when I said "CSINY!"

    Before you say anything, I knew the band before CSI shows :p

    screw CSI, the song doesn't have anyhting to do with the show. The song was originally about Vietnam and the kids that were sent to fight. There are plenty of other Who songs that would have worked better than this one
