"Boomchild" as written by and Dennis Deyoung....
Ever young, always cool
We had our Chevys and our hula-hoops
Watching Bandstand and Mickey Mouse
A generation born to Twist And Shout

Hey everybody
We were the children shining like gold
Transistor sister under my pillow
Go Johnny go

New horizons, new frontiers
Sons and daughters of our parents' fears
Super highways in stereo
Make it faster, louder rock 'n roll

We were dreaming, happy endings
Ask anyone
Expectations, the generation
Born to run

I'm a boomchild baby, warn Uncle Sam
Boomchild baby, epidemic in the land
I'm a boomchild baby, federal case
Boomchild baby, just trying to find a place

All at once, the dreams had stopped
Three bullets fired ended Camelot
But we kept searching for the clues
We never knew the world could be so cruel

People marching, people dying
Carrying signs
Assassinations and revelations
Blew our minds

I'm a boomchild baby, warn Uncle Sam
Boomchild baby, epidemic in the land
I'm a boomchild baby, born of the bomb
Boomchild baby, revolution gone wrong

I saw the picture of the flame
Thinking back before the world had changed
Some reflections make no sense
The fall is always hard from innocence

Close the door baby, turn the page
I do believe we've finally come of age
Hitting thirty just like that
I know it's corny but it sure goes fast

Hey everybody
We are the children mining for gold
From the hippies to the yuppies
Don't you know

I'm a boomchild baby, warn Uncle Sam
Boomchild baby, epidemic in the land
I'm a boomchild baby, I me my
Boomchild baby, still trying to find the light
