The Modern World
The Jam Lyrics


This is a modern world
This is the modern world
What kind of a fool do you think I am?
You think I know nothing of the modern world?
All my life has been the same
I've learned to live by hate and pain
It's my inspiration drive
I've learned more than you'll ever know
Even at school I felt quite sure
That one day I would be on top
And I'd look down upon the map
The teachers who said I'd be nothing

This is the modern world that I've learnt about
This is the modern world, we don't need no one
To tell us what's right or wrong
I said oh, right or wrong

Say what you like, 'cause I don't care
I know where I am and going too
It's somewhere I won't preview
Don't have to explain myself to you
I don't give a damn about your review

This is the modern world that I've learnt about
This is the modern world, we don't need no one
To tell us what's right or wrong
Modern world, this is, this is, this is, this is
This is, this is, this is
Hey, we don't need no one
To tell us what's right or wrong
This is a modern world
This is the modern world

Lyrics:

This is the modern world
This is the modern world

What kind of fool do you think I am?
You think I know nothing of the modern world
All my life it's been the same
I've learnt to live by hate and pain
It's my inspiration drive

I've learnt more than you'll ever know
Even at school I felt quite sure
That one day I would be on top
And I'd look down upon the map
The teachers who said I'd be nothing

This is the modern world that I've learnt about
This is the modern world we don't need no one
To tell us what's right or wrong
This is the modern world

Say what you like 'cause I don't care
I know where I am and going to
It's somewhere I won't preview
Don't have to explain myself to you
I don't give two fucks about your review

This is the modern world that I've learnt about
This is the modern world we don't need no one
To tell us what's right or wrong

Modern word, this is, this is, this is
This is, this is, this is, this is
Hey, we don't need no one
To tell us what's right or wrong

This is the modern world
This is the modern world

Good on you rockerbillys ..🇬🇧..

Doug Rudolph

Greetings, from a fellow, old rockabilly from the 80's. I agree, this talent popped in my head at work. HAD to play asap.

Tony M

I consider the single 'My Generation' by TheWHO to be rockabilly on 'roids. PT kicks up a fuss w/ his rhythm/ lead playing.

joan davies

still got this album on vinyl and loads more love the jam

sdd78

My favourite jam song and album great tunes with a bit of punk aggression

Jamie Daly

LOVE THIS SONG!

Jeffrey Kaufmann

They sound like early Who

PsyVen

Saw their first US gig at the Whisky in L.A. -- October 14, 1977. Brilliant band -- too bad they only broke through in the States on their final album.

Ligeirinho 3.0

Great Song! 🤘🇧🇷
