You better make a way for the young folks!
Here we come and we’re so alive
We’re here for business buddy, and don’t want no jive
Brighter tomorrows are in our eyes
You better make a way for the young folks , ooooh
Yeah yeah yeah yeah!

We say yes and you say no
We ask you why and you close the door
My old friend I thought you’d knew by now, yeah
You can’t do that to the young folks, oh
No no no no!
You might not like it, but I’ve got to tell you
Oh, gotta tell you, na na yeah yeah!
You better make a way for the young folks
ooo, yeah yeah yeah yeah!

We’re marching with signs
We’re standing in line, yeah yeah
Protesting your rights
To turn out the lights in our lives
Here’s the deal
Accept it if you will
We’re coming on strong, yeah
It’s our turn to build

My old friend I thought you’d knew by now, yeah
You gotta make a way for the young folks, ooo yeah yeah yeah yeah

You might not like it, but I’ve got to tell you
Oh, gotta tell you, oh yeah yeah yeah
You better make a way, you better a make way
You gotta make a way for the young folks, yeah yeah…
