"Show the white ..." in lyrics

Wolfgang Ambros - Pinch me

"The youth has no ideals, no appreciation of real values
Their life is too good, they don't know any hardness!"
Say those who always show the white feather, are greedy for money and corrupt
Become retired after a scandal - in short: are a real role model!
