      Lyrics

      Lay down your funky weapon.
      Yeah y’all, here we go
      Pumpin’ the big noise in the 90’s.

      Pardon me 4 living, but this is my world 2
      I can’t help that what’s cool to us might be strange to u
      Pardon me 4 breathing, can we borrow some of your air?
      The problem with u and your kind is that u don’t know love is there

      Lay down your funky weapon, come join us on the floor
      Making love and music’s the only things worth fighting 4.
      We r the new power generation, we want 2 change the world.
      The only thing that’s in our way is u.
      Your old fashioned music, your old ideas,
      We’re sick and tired of u telling us what 2 do.

      Pardon me 4 thinking, but there’s something under my hair
      I bet u thought the lights were on but noone’s living there
      U think that if u tell enough lies they will see the truth?
      I hope they bury your old ideas the same time they bury u

      Lay down your funky weapon, come join us on the floor
      Making love and music’s the only things worth fighting 4.
      We r the new power generation, we want 2 change the world.
      The only thing that’s in our way is u.
      Your old fashioned music, your old ideas,
      We’re sick and tired of u telling us what 2 do.

      We r the new, We r the new, We r the new,
      Making love and music
      New power, we stand

      Pardon us for caring, we didn’t know it was against the rules (shout it out)
      If we only want to love one another
      Then tell me now who’s the fool (tell me, tell me)
      No father, no mother, no sister, no brother, nobody can make me stop
      Said if u didn’t come 2 party child, I think u better get up offa my block.

      Lay down your funky weapon, come join us on the floor
      Making love and music’s the only things worth fighting 4.
      We r the new power generation, we want 2 change the world.
      The only thing that’s in our way is u.
      Your old fashioned music, your old ideas,
      We’re sick and tired of u telling us what 2 do.
      Why don’t u just be happy, baby.

      [chorus repeated with this sung over it]
      Go on and get up offa my block
      Get up offa my block, because
      Love is there if you’d just open up 2 it.
      If you’d just believe your whole world would change

      New power generation, you’ve got to rearrange. We’ve got
      We r the new power generation, you’ve gotta give up all the fight
      We gotta try 2 love one another, baby. we r the new power generation
      We r the new power generation.
      We r the new power generation.
