YOUTH (SINGLE) LYRICS

YOUTH

I was raised in the 80s

I came of age in the 90s

And some of my friends have had babies

And some have lost their mindies

 

I was raised in the 80s

I came of age in the 90s

And some of my friends have old ladies

And some have lost their mindies

 

Now all we wanna do is dance dance dance dance

All we wanna do is dance dance dance dance

Give us a bottle to spin

And a legion hall to slow dance in

 

We went insane in your bedroom

We fell straight through the wall

Into your sister's tower of cassettes

We crushed the cases and did pirouettes

 

We took pictures at the state preserve

The blue herons nestled one through four

We only ever kissed just once

When we wrestled on your bedroom floor

 

Now all we wanna do is dance dance dance dance

All we wanna do is dance dance dance dance

Give us a bottle to spin

And a legion hall to slow dance in

 

Now all we wanna do is dance dance dance dance

All we wanna do is dance dance dance dance

Give us back our youth

And no one will get hurt
