Maybe, if you were some spear-headed guy,
I would listen to what you have to say,
But your just some incapable figure thinking your bigger than me,
But your not,
Yeah, you don't know a thing about the youth of today,
Stating your opinion making it ring in my head all day.

And you say,
My children weren't the same,
My children's children they're the ones to blame,
And you say,
In my day we were better behaved,
But it's not your day, no more.

And we are the youth of today,
Change your hair in every way,
And we are the youth of today,
We'll say what we want to say,
And we are the youth of today,
Don't care what you have to say at all.

And maybe if you had a true point of view I would listen to you,
But its just your one sided opinions getting in my way,
And you dont no a single thing about the youth of today.
Stating your opinion,
And making it ring in my head all day,

And you say,
My children weren't the same,
My children's children they're the ones to blame,
And you say,
In my day we were better behaved,
But it's not your day, no more.

We are the youth of today,
Change your hair in every way,
We are the youth of today,
We'll say what we want to say,
And we are the youth of today,
Don't care what you have to say at all.

And you say,
My children weren't the same,
My children's children they're the ones to blame,
And you say,
In my day we were better behaved,
But it's not your day, no more.

We are the youth of today,
Change your hair in every way,
We are the youth of today,
We'll say what we want to say,
And we are the youth of today,
Don't care what you have to say at all

    We are the youth of today... So we are responsable of our good & bad acts... A youngman can't pass by, in this life as nobody, like no one... And less being a troublemaker!!!
