Jimmie Rodgers – Because You're Young lyrics

Because you're young
The whole world's watching
The whole world's watching
Everything you do

Because you're young
The whole world's waiting
Anticipating wonderous things from you

Because you're young
You may do foolish things
Go on and have your flings
They'll understand

And yet they say
Don't go too far astray
The future of this world
Is in your hands

And so because you're young
The whole world's prayin'
The whole world's prayin'
That you'll find the way

And there you are
With your arms reaching for a star
And that star isn't very far
Just because you're young
