Since I was born, They couldn't hold me down Another misfit kid, Another burned-out town I never played by the rules and I never really cared, My nasty reputation takes me everywhere
Well I look and see it's not only me So many others have stood where I stand, We are the young - so raise your hands
(Chorus) They call us problem child, We spend our lives on trial, We walk an endless mile - we are the Youth Gone Wild We stand and we won't fall - we're one and one for all The writing's on the wall - we are the Youth Gone Wild
Boss screaming in my ear about who I'm supposed to be, "Get a three-piece Wall Street smile, and son you'll look justlike me" I said "Hey, man, there's something you oughta know, well I tell ya Park Avenue leads to...Skid Row!!"
Well I look and see it's not only me We're standing tall, ain't never a doubt We are the young, so shout it out
