[Verse 1]
Hey, rising star
You're glowing bright
But you won't burn like that
Your entire life
Yeah, you ain't always
Gonna leave 'em stunned
If you're gonna sell out
Better do it while you're young
If the truth won't cut it
Then make something up
A lie is the best way
To make an honest buck
'Cause they'll breathe down your neck
'Till their psycho-babble floods your lungs
If you're gonna sell out
Better do it while you're young

[Chorus 1]
But if you take these cracklegs
And learn how to dance
Nothing but applause
Will come from my hands
Even if the moral victory's
All you've won
If you're gonna sell out
Better do it while you're young

[Verse 2]
Execs, yes-men
And sycophants
Tryin' to get their
Greasy fingerprints
Smeared around on
Everything you've done
If you're gonna sell out
Better do it while you're young
But by now you should know
What you left behind
When you signed that
Infernal dotted line
You're bound and gagged in red tape
But your swan's song hit #1
If you're gonna sell out
Better do it while you're young

[Chorus 2]
But if you take these cracklegs
And learn how to dance
Nothing but applause
Will come from my hands
But nobody's fooled
By your low riders and pierced tongue
If you're gonna sell out
Better do it while you're young

[Verse 3]
A comeback single
And publicity stunts
Will buy you maybe
A couple of months
But by now should know
Who's running and who's being run
If you're gonna sell out
Better do it while you're young

[Chorus 3]
But if you take these cracklegs
And learn how to dance
Nothing but applause
Will come from my hands
Any translator will tell you
There's no legalese word for fun
If you're gonna sell out
Better do it while you're young

Better sell out while you're young
Gotta sell out while you're young
Better sell out while you're young
