The Contenders
The Kinks Lyrics


Hush little mammy don't you cry
I've got to see what it's like on the world outside
Got to get out of this life somehow
Got to be free, got to be free now

I don't want to be a constructor of highways
A sweeper of sidewalks, I've got to do it my way
I'm too ill-equipped for a mathematician
A shrewd politician, a maker of decisions

We're not the greatest when when we're separated
But when we're together I think we're going to make it
I don't want to be like a fascist dictator
A saint or a sinner, I want to be a winner

Got to be free, got to be free now
I don't want to be a constructor of highways
A sweeper of sidewalks, I've got to do it my way
I'm too ill-equipped for a mathematician

We're not the greatest when when we're separated
But when we're together I think we're going to make it
I don't want to be like a fascist dictator
A saint or a sinner, I want to be a winner

Hush little mammy don't you cry
Got to see what it's like on the world outside
Got to get out of this life somehow
Got to be free, we got to be free now

[Verse 2]
I don't want to be a constructor of highways
A sweeper of sidewalks, I got to do it my way
I'm too ill-equipped for a mathematician
A shrewd politician, a maker of decisions

[Verse 3]
We're not the greatest when when we're separated
But when we're together I think we're going to make it
I don't want to be like a fascist dictator
A saint or a sinner, I want to be a winner

Kinks, a gold mine of rock and roll.

SalfordBlue

The intro brings to mind late sixties Stones. The main riff is pure Zeppelin.
... and yet it still remains oh so very Kinks. Love the hell out of this.

Neeps

I heard The Band during that intro myself.

ozzeey

holy moly when that guitar kicked in i got so hyped

Kevin Sansom

As much as the Davies brothers hated each other, they sure made some incredible and lasting art

J C

This album have some excellent RIFFS !! This song , Powerman, Rats, etc

John Harrison

Top of the Pops, Lola.

Bob Hill

One of the best albums!

Geeky Matt138

Once again, classic rock radio failed as I've never heard this before. First time listener and I can already tell I'm going to hit the repeat button.

Birkin Sornberger

I know your comment is a year old, but if you haven't already, please listen to the whole album. It's a concept album following a man through his success in the music industry from what I can tell.
