(Source: as heard)

Roger Daltrey:
My next guests are my friends from Ireland: The Chieftains!
And again, Sinéad O'Connor.
Roger Daltrey:
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,
No, no, no, no, no, no.
Sinéad et al.:
Don't cry,
Don't raise your eye,
It's only teenage wasteland.
Don't cry,
Don't raise your eye,
It's only teenage wasteland.
Roger Daltrey:
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, oh, yeah,
It's only teenage wasteland.
Teenage wasteland, oh, yeah,
It's only teenage wasteland.
They're all wasted!
Paddy Moloney of The Chieftains:
Yee, haw!
Whoo!
C'mon, everybody, around the house!
Hup, hup!
Roger Daltrey:
Out here in the fields,
I work 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,
No, no, no, no, no, no.
(Wasteland, wasteland.)
Teenage wasteland, oh, yeah,
It's only teenage wasteland.
Teenage wasteland, oh, yeah,
It's only teenage wasteland.
They're all wasted!
The Chieftains:
Paint me a picture, Paddy!
