Lyrics

Looking out a dirty old window,
Down below the cars in the city go rushing by.
I sit here alone and I wonder why...

Friday night and everyone's moving,
I can feel the heat, but it's soothing,
Heading down,
I search for the beat in this dirty town.

Downtown, the young one's are going,
Downtown, the young one's are growing...

We're the kids in America! (Ho-oh)
We're the kids in America! (Ho-oh)
Everybody lives for the music-go-round!

Bright lights, the music gets faster,
Look boy, don't check on your watch,
Not another glance.
I'm not leaving now honey, not a chance...

Hot-shot, (shot) give me no problems,
Much later baby you'll be saying "Never mind".
You know life is cruel, life is never kind.

Kind hearts don't make a new story,
Kind hearts don't grab any glory...

We're the kids in America! (Ho-oh)
We're the kids in America! (Ho-oh)
Everybody lives for the music-go-round!

Da da da da da da
Da da da da da da
Da da da da da da
Da da da da da da
Da da da
Da da da da da da

Come closer, honey that's better,
Got to get a brand new experience,
Feeling right,
Oh don't try to stop baby...

New York to California,
There's a new wave coming, we warn ya!

We're the kids in America! (Ho-oh)
We're the kids in America! (Ho-oh)
Everybody lives for the music-go-round!

Da da da da da da
Da da da da da da
Da da da da da da
Da da da da da da
Da da da
Da da da da da da

We're the kids!
We're the kids!
We're the kids in America!

We're the kids!
We're the kids!
K-k-k-kids in America!

We're the kids!
We're the kids!
We're the kids in America!

We're the kids!
We're the kids!
We're the kids in America!

We're the kids!
We're the kids!
We're the kids in America!
