lyrics

You knew we were coming for 60 years now
You knew we were coming and you told us how
You’d greet us and treat us and keep every vow
Cause you knew we were coming for 60 years now

You knew we were coming and we’d need your care
You knew we were coming, we all paid our share
But what we all dreamed of is now our nightmare
But you knew we were coming and we’d need your care

We are the babies you counted and grew
The boomers who’ve worked 40 years just for you
For your golden handshakes and your knighthoods too
And now we’re demanding you give us our due

Yes you knew we were coming, Maggie and Ted
Lord Home and Wilson and Callaghan said
There’d be a pension, a nurse and a bed
‘Cause you knew we were coming, Maggie and Ted

You knew we were coming, and now we are here
Be patient you tell but one thing is clear
Patience wears thin when there’s hope and there’s fear
But you knew we were coming, and now we are here

‘Cause now we’re arriving, the glad to be grey
We’re the kids of the 60’s, don’t stand in our way
We’ve marched before now we’ll have our say
‘Cause now we’re arriving, the glad to be grey

And you knew we were coming for 60 years now
You knew we were coming but you never said how
You’d cheat us, defeat us and break every vow
But you knew were coming, and here we are now
Yes you knew we were coming,
And here we are now!
