Young Turks - Rod Stewart
Billy left his home with a dollar in his pocket and a head full of dreams He said somehow, some way, it's gotta get better than this Patti packed her bags, left a note for her momma, she was just seventeen There were tears in her eyes when she kissed her little sister goodbye
They held each other tight as they drove on thru the night they were so exited We got just one shot of life, let's take it while we're still not afraid Because life is so brief and time is a thief when you're undecided And like a fistful of sand, it can slip right through your hands
CHORUS: Young hearts beat free tonight Time is on your side Don't let them put you down, don't let 'em push you around Don't let 'em ever change your point of view.
Paradise was closed so they headed for the coast in a blissful manner They took a two room apartment that was jumping every night of the week Happiness was found in each other's arms as expected, yeah Billy pierced his ears, drove a pickup like a lunatic, ooh...
Young hearts beat free tonight Time is on your side
Billy wrote a letter back home to Patti's parents tryin' to explain He said we're both real sorry that it had to turn out this way But there ain't no point in talking when there's nobody listening so we just ran away Patti gave birth to a ten pound baby boy, yeah
Young hearts beat free tonight Time is on your side Young hearts beat free tonight Time is on your side Young hearts beat free tonight Ttime in on your side
Young hearts gotta run free, be free, live free Time is on, time is on your side Time, time, time, time is on your side Is on your side Is on your side Is on your side Young heart beat free tonight Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, yeah
