Song 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!

Yankees suck!! you did ask for that
anyhow, Baba O'Riley is one of the best Who songs. If only more people would listen to the line. I don't need to fight, to prove I'm right I'm sure the world would be a better place.
I think everyone should travel south and see the shocking poverty that africa, south america and asia live in. It is teenager wasteland down there because very few live past that.
That being said are the "developed" countries giving teenagers a fair go? At least where I come from they're not (Australia btw). Every news it has how drunken teenage hooligans did this, or how teenage hoons were caught speeding. We're wasting away with our drugs, booze and fast food and we're happily dancing to the tune to those with the best add.
Teenage wasteland is here my friends
Molle
P.S. this song kicks arse

This is by far one of the best Who songs, everyone who either dosent like the begining or end cant really appreciate the songs uniqueness, I also agree with what was said about the who not just being from CSI, they got their start back in i think 1966 so dont think they just write theme songs for todays TV.

one of the who's best and probably one of the best rock anthems i've heard, although it's very annoying when people insist that it's called "teenage wasteland"
