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

Down town the young ones are going
Down town the young ones are growing

We're the kids in America
We're the kids in America
Everybody live 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, 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
We're the kids in America
Everybody live for the music-go-round

Come closer, honey that's better
Got to get a brand new experience
Feeling right
Oh don't try to stop baby
Hold me tight
Outside a new day is dawning
Outside Suburbia's sprawl­ing everywhere
I don't want to go baby

New York to East California
There's a new wave com­ing I warn you

We're the kids in America
We're the kids in America
Everybody live for the music-go-round

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