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 won’t no jive.
Brighter tomorrows are in our eyes

You better make a way for the young folks
Ooh, 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 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
I’ve got to tell you, na na, yeah yeah

You better make a way for the young folks
Ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
We’re marching with signs
We’re standing in lines, yeah, yeah
Protesting our 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 knew by now, yeah
You gotta make a way for the young folks
Ooh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You may not like it, but I’ve got to tell you
I’ve got to tell you, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah

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