Radiohead Lyrics

Keep Strong

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey

If they think they can tell us all of their problems
If they think we’d listen if we had a clue, yeah
Well I’m going to tell them something that’s good and evil, yeah
If we don’t then we’ll give in to something far too strong
So keep strong, keep strong

Going deeper and deeper into the debt
Going deeper and deeper into depression
All the time they’re making you bad, boy, boy, boy, boy
All the time they’re making you bad, boy
So keep strong, keep strong

Anyone can be a millionaire
Anyone can have a big black car and a phone
(Yes, yes, yes)
Because it’s just as easy, they?ll rot in hell
Because it’s just as easy, they’re all fat bastards and
Nothing at all, keep strong

Hey
Hey

Keep strong, keep strong
Yeah, oh

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey

Yeah, and if you want to be rich
Then you got to be a bastard
But, but if you can’t be a bastard
Then you might as well just sit in front of your television
And spend the rest of your life like a fucking zombie

Keep strong, keep strong

 

SONG INFORMATION

Released: 1990
Found on: 1990 Summer Demo

“Keep Strong” was recorded and included on a 1990 demo. At the time, the band had stopped using the name On A Friday and had temporarily settled on Shindig, but that was soon dropped and they reverted back to On A Friday before ultimately choosing Radiohead in 1992.

Because Phil Selway was temporarily living in Ireland at the time, Nigel Powell played drums. It was recorded at Clifton Hampden Village Hall.
