who ( The ) - MY GENERATION

First performance: 30/09/1967


Coverinfo

 
Bruce covered the song in september 1967 with the Castiles at the band’s second gig in the 'left foot' in Freehold. Only 26 minutes of the band’s 60-minute performance exists on the original master tape. The tape included 'one by one'. Keep in mind that only a small amount of setlists of the early years has surfaced, so it may have been played a lot more. One show, double bill, with The Castiles headlining. This was the band’s second gig at the club (see September 16). The 13-song mentioned setlist represents The Castiles’ complete performance at this show, in the correct song sequence. This was The Castiles’ final appearance at The Left Foot. Although having only opened in September 1967, The Left Foot’s popularity dropped dramatically in March 1968 when the larger, trendier Freehold Hullabaloo club opened nearby. The Left Foot closed for good in April 1968.

Lyrics

People try to put us d-down
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Just because we get around
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Things they do look awful c-c-cold
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I hope I die before I get old
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
My generation
This is my generation, baby
Why don't you all f-fade away
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Don't try to dig what we all s-s-say
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I'm not trying to cause a big s-s-sensation
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I'm just talkin' 'bout my g-g-generation
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
My generation
This is my generation, baby
Why don't you all f-fade away
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
And don't try to d-dig what we all s-s-say
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I'm not trying to cause a b-big s-s-sensation
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
I'm just talkin' 'bout my g-g-generation
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
My generation
This is my generation, baby
My, my, my, my generation
My, my, my, my generation
People try to put us d-down
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Just because we g-g-get around
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Things they do look awful c-c-cold
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
Yeah, I hope I die before I get old
(Talkin' 'bout my generation)
My generation
This is my generation, baby
My, my, my, my generation
My, my, my, my generation
Talkin' 'bout my generation
(My generation)
Talkin' 'bout my generation
(My generation)
Talkin' 'bout my generation
(Is my generation baby)
Talkin' 'bout my generation
(This is my generation)
Talkin' 'bout my generation
(This is my generation)
Talkin' 'bout my generation
(This is my generation)
Talkin' 'bout my generation
(This is my generation)
Talkin' 'bout my generation
(This is my generation)
