When you are 18,
You're a man who is ready,
Who is strong and is steady,
You know what I mean...
When you are 18,
Then you should be respected,
And you don't need protected,
When you are 18.
When you are 18,
You are braver and bolder,
Than that crowd who are older,
You know who I mean.
'Cause when you are 18,
With all those years years to prepare you,
There's nothin' can scare you,
When you are 18.
I'm ready to travel,
To follow my star-
To the places I've been dreamin' of.
I'm ready for livin'
I'm ready for life,
And I know that I'm ready for love.
But when you are 18,
They say love's complicated, and so over-rated,
You know what I mean.
When you are 18,
They say wait and don't worry,
And hey what's your hurry?
'Cause you're only 18.
(Short musical)
I'm ready to travel,
To follow my star-
To the places I've been dreamin' of.
I'm ready for livin'
I'm ready for life,
And I know that I'm ready for love...
When you are 18,
With the world all around you,
It can sometimes astound you,
You know what I mean?
Just how little they know. Ha
All those cowboys and chancers.
I've got more of the answers,
And I'm only 18!
