Young Americans

They pulled in just behind the fridge

He laid her down - he frowns

"Gee my life's a funny thing

Am I still too young"

He kissed then and there

She took his ring, took his babies

It took him minutes, took her nowhere

Heaven knows she'd've taken anything



All night - she wants the young American

It's all right - but she wants the young American



Scanning life through the picture window

She finds the slinky vagabond

He coughs as he passes her Ford Mustang

Heaven forbid she'll take anything

But the freak and his type - all for nothing

He misses a step and cuts his hand

Showing nothing he swoops like a song

She cries "Where have all papa's heroes gone?"



All night - she wants the young American

It's all right - but she wants the young American



All the way from Washington

Her breadwinner begs of the bathroom floor

"We live for just these twenty years

Do we have to die for the fifty more"



All night - he wants the young American

It's all right - but he wants the young American



Do you remember president Nixon

Do you remember the bills you have to pay

Or even yesterday



But you ain't a pimp and you ain't a hustler

Pimps got a Cadi - lady got a Chrysler

Black got respect - white got his soul train

Mama's got cramps and look at your hands

I heard the news today oh boy

I got a suite and you got defeat

Ain't there a man - who can say no more

Ain't there a woman - I can sock in the jaw

Ain't there a child - I can hold without judging

Ain't there a pen - that will write before they die

Ain't you proud - that you've still got faces

And ain't there one damn song that can make me

Break down and cry



All night - I want the young American

It's all right - but I want the young American
