When you're young and you don't know nothing
Life is in the back of a van
Wondering who's getting what from whoever else
And wondering if you can
Wasting your time in some goddam school
Everybody's pushin' and shovining
Running 'round angry most of the time
Cause you're young and you don't know nothing.
Running 'round angry most of the time
Cause you're young and you don't know nothing.

When you're young and you don't know nothing
Everything's locked behind doors
Like your daddy's afraid that you might find out
What he really married mama for
Screaming about responsibility
While you're just trying to get some lovin'
One more fight brings you down tonight
Cause you're young and you don't know nothing
One more fight brings you down tonight
Cause you're young and you don't know nothing

When you're young and you don't know nothing
You laugh but it ain't too funny
They try to sell you clothes and rock and roll shows
You got no rights except for spending your money
You get sick of being criticized
And all the advice they try to stuff in
Just a chip on your shoulder
And nowhere to go
When you're young and you don't know nothing
Just a chip on your shoulder
And nowhere to go
When you're young and you don't know nothing
