Young Turks

Billy left his home with a dollar in his pocket and a head full of dreamsHe said somehow, some way, it's gotta get better than thisPatti packed her bags, left a note for her momma, she was just seventeenThere were tears in her eyes when she kissed her little sister goodbyeThey held each other tight as they drove on thru the night they were so exitedWe got just one shot of life, let's take it while we're still not afraidBecause life is so brief and time is a thief when you're undecidedAnd like a fistful of sand, it can slip right through your handsCHORUS:Young hearts beat free tonightTime is on your sideDon't let them put you down, don't let 'em push you aroundDon't let 'em ever change your point of view.Paradise was closed so they headed for the coast in a blissful mannerThey took a two room apartment that was jumping every night of the weekHappiness was found in each other's arms as expected, yeahBilly pierced his ears, drove a pickup like a lunatic, ooh...CHORUSYoung hearts beat free tonightTime is on your sideBilly wrote a letter back home to Patti's parents tryin' to explainHe said we're both real sorry that it had to turn out this wayBut there ain't no point in talking when there's nobody listening so we just ran awayPatti gave birth to a ten pound baby boy, yeahYoung hearts beat free tonightTime is on your sideYoung hearts beat free tonightTime is on your sideYoung hearts beat free tonightTtime in on your sideYoung hearts gotta run free, be free, live freeTime is on, time is on your sideTime, time, time, time is on your sideIs on your sideIs on your sideIs on your sideYoung heart beat free tonightTonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, yeah


Forever Young

May the good Lord be with you
Down every road you roam
And may sunshine and happiness
surround you when you're far from home
And may you grow to be pround
Dignified and true
And do unto others
As you'd have done to you
Be courageous and be brave
And in my heart you'll always stay
forever young (forever young)
forever young (forever young)

May good fortune be with you
May your guiding light be strong
Build a stairway to heaven
with a prince or a vagabond

And may you never love in vain
and in my heart you will remain
Forever Young (forever young)
Forever Young (forever Young)
Forever Young
Forever Young

And when you finally fly away
I'll be hoping that I served you well
For all the wisdom of a lifetime
No one can ever tell

But whatever road you choose
I'm right behind you, win or lose
Forever Young (Forever Young)
Forever Young (Forever Young)
Forever Young, Forever Young
For, forever young, forever Young
