They pulled in just behind the fridge
He lays her down, she frowns
"Gee my life's a funny thing, am I still too young?"
Kissed her then and there
She took his ring, took his babies
Took him minutes, took her nowhere
Heaven knows, she'd of taken anything, but

CHORUS
  All night
  She wants the young American
  Young American, young American, she wants the young young American
  It's all right
  She wants the young American

Scanning life through the picture windows
Finds a slinky vagabond
He coughs, passes a Ford Mustang
Heaven knows she'd take anything
But the freak and his type all for nothing
Misses a step and cuts his hand
Showing nothing, he swoops like a

Song song blue, everybody knows one
Song song blue, everybody knows one
It's the loneliest number that you'll ever do  (ever do)
This is the loneliest number that you'll ever do

Do ron ron ron, they do ron ron
Met him on a Monday and my heart stood still
Do ron ron ron, they do ron ron
Somebody told me that his name was Bill

I love you so, I always will
And I look at look and see the ?

I love
Hey baby if I pray every night
You'll come back to me
And
Baby, I'll be true
Baby baby, I'll help you
Baby baby, I'll help you

So day tripper
One way ticket yeah
It took me so long
To find out, I found out

Dang dang, blue, for the
You saw me standing alone
Without a love of my own
Without a dream of my

Only you
Can make this world seem right
Only you
Can make this darkness bright
Only you came
I walk alone
You betta carumbus??
I could've known

  (I know, I know, I know, I know, I know)

Gotta really leave the young thing alone
Ain't no darkness when she gone
Darkness
  (Ain't no sunshine when he's gone)
Darkness every day  (only darkness every day)
Ain't no sunshine when he's gone
And this house alone??
Anytime she goes away
Well I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know

I saw her standing her on the corner
She had a ribbon in her hair, ooh
I couldn't stop myself from crying

Yeah
Look-a left
Get 'em once

Oo look-a there
Ahh ahh ahh
Young blood, young blood
Young blood, young blood
I can't get you outta my mind
Young blood, (ohhh) young blood, young blood
I can't get you outta my mind

  (Young Americans, young Americans, young Americans)

Ain't there one song that can make me
(Spoken) "Happy?"
Break down and cry
(Spoken) "Have fun"

All night
I want, you want
I want, you want,
Hey hey, ohh ohh ohh
Wants the young American
Ooo
