We Got a Hit (Pete Townshend) Eel Pie Publishing Ltd. / BMG Music Publishing, Ltd.

Pete: "In a series of intense discussions the three metamorphose from kids to adults and expert media and internet manipulators and we see them performing a hit on TV, radio and stage. The hit referred to in the lyric is FRAGMENTS."

Included in the live version of the mini-opera.

We got our folks together
We broke down barriers
We found a dream to dream
We were the carriers
We got rich and famous
Newspapers at our door
We talked a load of crap
They just wanted more

We got a hit
Good news, we got a hit
We got a hit
Good news, we got a hit
We got a hit...

We got our folks together
We broke down barriers
We found a dream to dream
We were the carriers

We got a hit
Good news, we got a hit
We got a hit
Good news
Hit

They made my dream come true
They made my dream come true
They made my dream come true
They made my dream come true

We came under pressure
We needed time to fly
Inside the case of treasure
There was an evil lie

We were bruised and battered
We were bound and taped
We were nude and shattered
We'd been coldly raped

We got a hit
Good news, we got a hit
We got a hit
Good news, we got a hit
We got a hit
We got a hit...

We got our folks together
We broke down barriers
We found a dream to dream
We were the carriers

We got a hit
Good news, we got a hit
We got a hit
Good news
Hit
