Youth culture killed my dog
And I don't think it's fair
(I don't think it's fair)
And his suicide can be justified
By the taste makers, how they cried and cried and so

Bacharach and David
Used to write his favorite songs
Never, never, never would he worry
He'd run and fetch the ball

But the night lights and my dog's life
Aren't exactly one and the same

Youth culture killed my dog
And I don't think it's fair
(I don't think it's fair)
And the judgment made in the city of hate
Just broke his spirit so

Bacharach and David
Used to write his favorite songs
Never, never, never would he worry
He'd run and fetch the ball

But the hip hop and the white funk
Just blew away my puppy's mind

I don't understand what you did to my dog
And I don't understand what you did to my dog
I don't understand what you did to my dog
I don't understand what you did to my dog

Youth culture killed my dog
(Youth culture killed my dog)
And I don't think it's fair
(I don't think it's fair)
And his suicide can be justified
By the taste makers, how they cried and cried and so

Youth culture
(Youth culture)
Youth culture
(Youth culture)
Broke his spirit so
(Broke his spirit so)
Broke his spirit so

Youth culture
(Youth culture, youth culture)
Youth culture
(Youth culture, youth culture)
Broke his spirit so
(Broke his spirit so)
Broke his spirit so
