"Messin' with the Kid" as written by and Ed Kuepper Chris Bailey....
It ain't too easy being a young man
going round in circles all of the time
you've played their game now for so long can't see
what in the world are they trying to do to me
Sometimes you get that old lost feeling
Sometimes it hits you when you're feeling down
It's that old feeling that brings you down
I say it makes you crawl, right up the nearest wall
You walk down the main street out in the city
see all the girls now they are so pretty
but all their smiling faces are just going to pass you by
it don't make no difference
no matter how hard you try..
Sometimes you get that old lost feeling
Sometimes it hits you when you're feeling down
You been hanging around the alleys hanging around the bars looking for some fun but there is none & there you are...
looking for some action looking for some fun but you are down in the gfutter & you don't get none no no there is nothing left to do.....
How do you feel now that it's all over
your kid dreams all melted under the sun
just like a kid take a trip down to the sea
I am struck out in the middle
with nothing left to say
Sometimes you get that old lost feeling
Sometimes it hits you when you're feeling down

    General CommentIt's all about the problems young men face including self-image, communication, picking up girls etc.
    It could be described as one of their relatively "softer" songs and along with "(I'm) Stranded" it's my favourite song on their first album.
