Won’t Get Fooled Again è una canzone degli Who scritta dal chitarrista Pete Townshend e pubblicata nel 1971 con lo storico album Who’s Next. E’ un brano costruito su parti di chitarra e di organo (sintetizzatore) il cui testo fa riferimento a quella che puntualmente pare essere la rivoluzione delle rivoluzioni ma si rivela sempre il solito vecchio regime. Sebbene la lunghezza della traccia originale sia di 8 minuti e mezzo, per le compilation ed i passaggi radio è stata usata una versione iper-ridotta lunga appena 3 minuti e 38 secondi.
Ad ogni modo, è una pietra miliare del rock di tutti i tempi e compare in ogni sorta di classifica stilata al riguardo, venendo tutt’oggi considerata anche una delle migliori tracce di chitarra di sempre.

  "Men..."   "Judgment..." "Decided..." "Seems.."

Verse 1: (Chords)
         A               D
We'll be fighting in the streets
         A               D
With our children at our feet
        A                D               E    C G
And the morals that they worship will be gone
        A                  D
And the men who spurred us on
       A                D
Sit in judgement of all wrong
       A            D                 E    C G
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

Chorus:
     D      A          D         A
I'll tip my hat to the new constitution,
D      A           D       A
Take a bow for the new revolution,
D         A           D          A
Smile and grin at the change all around me,
G                     E
Pick up my guitar and play
G               E
Just like yesterday
          G                   D   G D
Then I'll get on my knees and pray...

We don't get fooled again

Verse 2:
    A                 D
The change, it had to come,
   A            D
We knew it all along
        A         D                     E   C G
We were liberated from the fold, that's all
        A                    D
And the world looks just the same
    A             D
And history ain't changed
           A                 D                 E   C G
'Cause the banners, they are flown in the next war

     B
I'll move myself and my family aside,

If we happen to be left half alive!
     A
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky,
         B
Though I know that the hypnotized never lie...

It's very hard to tell what's going on during the solo cuz there's the sythesizer and
guitar overlaying, so, especially for the first part, this gives the right idea, but may
every single note.
