young americans

he lays he down, he frowns

Gee my life's a funny thing, am I still too young?

He kissed her then and there,

she took his ring, took his babies

It took him minutes, took her no-where

Heaven knows, she'd've taken anything, but

[All night

*She* wants the young American

[Young American, young American, *she* wants the young American

[All right

but *she* wants the young American

Scanning life through the picture window,

[Doo-doo-doo-woo

[Doo-doo-doo-woo

Heaven forbid, she take anything

But the freak, and his type, all for nothing,

[Doo-doo-doo-woo

[Doo-doo-doo-woo

She cries Where have all Papas' heroes gone?

[All night

*She* wants the young American

[Young American, young American, *she* wants the young American

[All right

but *she* wants the young American

All the way from Washington,

her bread-winner begs off the bathroom floor

We live for just these twenty years,

do we have to die for the fifty more?, had

[All night

*He* wants the young American

[Young American, young American, *He* wants the young American

[All right

but *He* wants the young American

Do you remember

your President Nixon?

[Doo-doo-doo-woo

the bills you have to pay,

or even yesterday?

Have you have been an un-American?

[Doo-doo-doo-woo

[Doo-doo-doo-woo

not a myth left from the ghetto

Well, well, well, would you carry a razor

[Doo-doo-doo-woo

[Doo-doo-doo-woo

blushing at all the afro-Sheila's

Ain't that close to love?

[Doo-doo-doo-woo

[Doo-doo-doo-woo

her heart's been broken just like you have

[All night

*YOU* wants the young American

[Young American, young American, *YOU* wants the young American

[All right

but *YOU* wants the young American

You ain't a pimp and you ain't a hustler

A pimps' got a Cadi and a lady got a Chrysler

Blacks got respect, uhh, whites got his soul train

Mamas' got cramps, and look at your hands ache

[I heard the news today, oh boy

I got a suite and you got defeat

Ain't there a man you can say no more?, and

Ain't there a woman I can sock on the jaw?, and

Ain't there a child I can hold without judging?

Ain't there a pen that will write before they die?

Ain't you proud that you've still got faces?

Ain't there one damn song that can make me

break down and cry?

[All night

*I* wants the young American

[Young American, young American, *I* wants the young American

[All right

but *I* wants the young American

but *I* wants the young American

[All night

*I* wants the young American

[Young American, young American, *I* wants the young American

[All right

but *I* wants the young American

but *I* wants the young American
