If you wear your hat just a little too long
then everything about you has got to be wrong
and if you don't dress like they think you should
then you're all that and you ain't no good
If you don't think just like they do
they don't have time to listen to you
when you speak up just what they say
I don't know what's wrong with young folks today
don't let 'em tell you what you do
when you're the one who knows you best
don't let 'em tell you what you do
get up and take a stand

Love is the name of our new generation
but there's no such thing as a united nation
don't run your mouth while your minds on vacation
we got to straighten out this situation
don't let 'em tell you what you do
when you're the one who knows you best
don't let 'em tell you what you do
get up and take a stand
