You can't blame the youths
You can't fool the youths
You can't blame the youths of today
You can't fool the youths

You're teaching youths to learn in the school
And that the cow jumped over moon
Teaching youths to learn in the school
And that the dish ran away with spoon

So you can't blame the youths of today
You can't fool the youths
You can't blame the youths, not at all
You can't fool the youths

You teach the youths about Christopher Columbus
And you said he was a very great man
You teach the youths about Marco Polo
And you said he was a very great man

You teach the youths about the pirate Hawkins
And you said he was a very great man
You teach the youths about the pirate Morgan
And you said he was a very great man

So, you can't blame the youths, when they don't learn
You can't fool the youths
You can't blame the youths of today
You can't fool the youths

When every Christmas come
You buy the youth a pretty toy gun
When every Christmas comes around
You buy the youth a fancy toy gun

So, you can't blame the youths when they get bad
You can't fool the youths
You can't blame the youths of today
You can't fool the youths

Said he was a very great man
Said he was a very great man

You teach the youths about Christopher Columbus
And you said he was a very great man
You teach the youths about Marco Polo
And you said he was a very great man

You teach the youths about the pirate Hawkins
And you said he was a very great man
You teach the youths about the pirate Morgan
And you said he was a very great man

So, you can't blame the youths
You can't fool the youths
You can't blame the youths of today
You can't fool the youths, yeah

And you said he was a very great man
