You better make a way for the young folks

Here we come, and we're so alive.
We're here for business buddy,and don't won't no jive.
Brighter tomorrows are in our eyes
You better make a way for the young folks
Ooh, yeah,yeah,yeah,yeah

We say yes
And you say no
We ask you why
And you close the door
My old friend I thought you knew by now, yeah
You can't do that to the young folks
Oh, no,no,no,no

You might not like it
But I've got to tell you
I've got to tell you, na na, yeah yeah.
You better make a way for the young folks
Ooh, yeah,yeah,yeah,yeah

We're marching with signs
We're standing in lines, yeah, yeah
Protesting your rights
To turn out the lights in our lives
Here's the deal, accept it if you will
We're coming on strong, yeah
It's our turn to build
My old friend, I thought you knew by now, yeah
You gotta make a way for the young folks
Ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah,yeah

You may not like it, but I've got to tell you
I've got to tell you, oh, yeah,yeah,yeah
You better make a way, you better make a way
You gotta make a way for the young folks, yeah, yeah
Oh,oh,yeah,yeah, ooh

You may not like it but I've to tell you
I've got to tell you, na na na na …(fade)
