Here they come, looking so alive
They're here for business but it's all none of your jive
Brighter tomorrows are in their eyes
You'd better make way for the young folks
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

They say yes and you say no
They ask you why and you close the door
My old friend I thought you knew by now
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
Gotta tell you, you'd better make way for the young folks
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

They're marching with signs, they're standing in lines
Yeah, protesting your right to turn out the light in their lives

Here's the deal, accept it if you will
They're coming on strong, it's their time to live
My old friend I thought you knew by now
You gotta make way for the young folks
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

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

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