New Power Generation — The Good Life lyrics

Have mercy, uh
The exodus has begun (The exodus has begun!)
Have mercy, uh
The exodus has begun
Now these are the names of the New Power Generation
(These are the names)
The funkiest suckers of the new gold nation
Polyvinyl acetate, New Power Soul
Guaranteed 2 stick 2 the roof of your Oldsmobile muthafucka
chorus:
Long live the New Power!
Have mercy
Generation after generation, the soul will never die
(The exodus has begun)
Long live the New Power!
Have mercy
We don't cry, we don't die, we just multiply
Polyvinyl acetate, New Power Soul (Mercy)
The exodus has begun
These are the names of the children of the sun
Pumpin' the love sign in the days of wild
Tearin' shit up with a vengeance and still they smile (Still they smile)
Though their lives were made bitter with hard labor and no pay
These are the children that will come 2 save the day
(These are the children)
The exodus has begun
Have mercy
chorus
La da da da, da da daaa (you ain't gonna hurt me)
Sho do do do do doo (Have mercy)
La da da da, da da daaa (you ain't gonna hurt me)
Have mercy
(Behold)
Behold the children of the New Power
Are more and mightier than you (Mighty, mighty)
you that have scorned and held back the inevitable
Must now come 2 grips with the truth
(All that is good in the eyes of heaven)
All that is good in the eyes of heaven
Will rebuke your powder monkey ways
(Have mercy, mercy, mercy)
And let that same heaven have mercy
When the wrath of the sun knocks upon your gate
Have mercy
The exodus has begun
(New... New Power!)
Uh, brothers and sisters
(Stop me if you want, it's between you and me)
The exodus has begun
Uh (New Power!)
