Jenny Lewis – Wasted Youth lyrics
[Verse 1]
Sister, we're slidin' down a bong
I can't tell you what I think you're doing wrong
Stop your cryin', our daddy's gone
Do you remember when he used to sing us that little song?

[Chorus]
I wasted my youth on a poppy
Doo-doo doo-doo doo, just for fun
I wasted my youth on a poppy
Doo-doo doo-doo doo, just because

[Verse 2]
Why you lyin'? The bourbon's gone
Mercury hasn't been in retrograde for that long, oh no
Stop your hiding, drop that bomb
Do you remember when I used to sing you this little song?

[Chorus]
I wasted my youth on a poppy
Doo-doo doo-doo doo, just for fun
I wasted my youth on a poppy
Doo-doo doo-doo doo, just because
And everybody knows, it's a tight rope
The cookie crumbles into dust
And everybody knows, we're in trouble
Doo-doo doo-doo doo, candy crush

[Bridge]
Just 'cause you're young, don't mean nothing
Don't mean nothing
We are here and we're gon' do something
While your heart is thumping

[Chorus]
I wasted my youth on a poppy
Doo-doo doo-doo doo, just because
I wasted my youth on a poppy
Doo-doo doo-doo doo, just for fun
And everybody knows, it's a tight rope
The cookie crumbles into dust
And everybody knows, we're in trouble
Doo-doo doo-doo doo, candy crush

[Outro]
Wasted my youth
Wasted youth
Doo-doo doo-doo doo
Wasted youth
Doo-doo doo-doo doo
Wasted youth
Doo-doo doo-doo doo
