"runaway boys" as written by James Mc Donnell and Brian Robert Setzer....
Get kicked out for coming home at dawn,
Mom and Dad cursed the day you were born,
Throw your clothes into a duffle bag
shoutin' as ya slam the door home is a drag

Who can I turn to and where can I stay?
I heard a place is open all night and all day
There's a place you can go where the cops don't know
You can act real wild they don't treat you like a child

Runaway boys
Your hair's all greasy and you feel like a slob,
You're only fifteen and you can't get a job,
Go into the luncheonette and shoot a few games
Losing all your quarters, man it's always the same

Steal a couple of bucks to buy a new toy,
Slip into the alley with the

Runaway boys
Runnin' faster, faster all the time
You're under age and God knows, that's a crime!

Runaway boys

    General CommentIt's about underaged boys abused/neglected at home and sent out to live in the streets. Too young to work a legit job, they spend the day passing time in the arcade and I'm thinking prostituting themselves, but I'm not so sure about the latter. Like the song and the artist.
