Here we come, walkin' down the street
We get the funniest looks from everyone we meet

But we're too busy reviewing to put anybody down
We go wherever we want to, do what we like to do
We don't have time to get restless, there's always something to review
Hey, hey, we're Launching The Pilot and people say we monkey around
But we're too busy reviewing to put anybody down
We're just tryin' to be friendly, come and listen to us review
We're the old generation, and we've got nothing to say.
