Young, attractive and free
And it’s the way you like to be
Feeling cool, and ready just to take a chance
Oh, everybody’s having such a real good time
But their generation has stepped outta line
Take your part in the night of the modern bands

See all the smart young men go cruising around the floor
Hear all the smart young men as they cry out for more

And now she’s got the kind of good looks
That you just can’t find in books
He knows that dreams die first, but he don’t care
And the good-looking German boy
Keeps on dancing all the more
He’s a star, but he looks so unaware

See all the smart young men go cruising around the floor
Hear all the smart young men as they cry out for more

The old man’s standing there
With cheaply coloured hair
And staring in the mirror at the image that he hates to see
Oh, in the place where lovers hide
From the philistines outside
I hide away in the European sanctuary

See all the smart young men go cruising around the floor
Hear all the smart young men as they cry out for more

Sharp young men!
Sharp young men!

Walking down the street
They’re the type you never meet
And they won’t wait
Won’t ever hesitate
Well, they go with the in-crowd
They’re really now
They’re so cool
And I am no-one
I gotta tell you ‘bout…
I wanna tell you ‘bout…
