She's a modern girl, in a modern world
Where only the strong can survive
Too many dreams have been laid at her door
But the modern girl will ride on, oh oh oh

Where would you fit in a scheme of her day
And where could you fit in her heart?
Trying to be small would get you nowhere at all
But the modern girl will ride on, oh oh oh

Don't throw your love away
(Hey, hey)
Don't throw your love away
(Hey, hey)
Don't throw your love away
Don't throw your love away
(Hey, hey)

She moves through your life like a warm summer breeze
And nothin' will stand in her way
The sound of her voice brings your heart to its knees
But the modern girl will ride on, oh oh oh

Don't throw your love away
Don't throw your love away
(Hey, hey)
Don't throw your love away
(Hey, hey)
Don't throw your love away
(Hey, hey, hey, hey)

Don't throw your love away
(Hey, hey)
Don't throw your love away
(Hey, hey)
Don't throw your love away
(Hey, hey)
