This has got to be the widest split between the lyrics and the music I've ever heard.
I listened to it for months and though it was about the generation gap, entirely based on the "don't you know you're driving your mamas and papas insane." I just couldn't understand why it had "great lyrics" under characterist i c s .
Then I looked up the lyrics. Wow. Aliens invade and engineer our children into a Homo Superior.

Quite interesting.
Even though I was around at the time, my failing memory always has placed this song later in the 'glam' or 'glitter' rock era of the 70s. Both the lyrics and style of the music are so much similar to a couple big glitter-boys of that movement.
