Teenage Wasteland

For some reason, the lyrics for The Who's CSI:New York theme song seemed especially significant today as I went through many TV themes from the 1970s onwards. That, and the gripping bars of Morton Stevens's theme from Hawaii Five-O.

Here are Baba O'Riley's 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 a 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 a teenage wasteland
Teenage wasteland
Oh, oh
Teenage wasteland
They're all wasted!
