When we were young
When we were young
When we were young
When we were young
When we were young

When we were young
Everything was so new
We broke all the rules
Just to do it
And I don't know how the hell
I lived through it
Young and on the run
Gettin' loaded like a gun
When we were young

Time sure flies
When your havin' fun
I wish I walked through life
But I chose to run

I used to beat for abuse
And play with guns
I played to pay the price
Till my life ain't done

I remember runnin' wild
Not a care in the world
It was all about graffiti
And chasin' the girls

Runnin' from the law
And bar room brawls
Gettin' arrested callin' home
With those late night calls
(when we were young)

Sorry mom I'm in jail again
Tonight I got arrested
With a couple of friends
You can either pick me up

Or you can send me some mint
Either way mom it looks like
I messed up again

Back to my p.o. or rehab
Or up north to see dad
Its just the way it goes
You were born to be bad

I been a fool
Skippin' school
Flickin' off the principal
Its hard for mom to believe me
But she's so convincable

(When we were young)

[Chorus]

(When we were young)
Shoplifting gifts for the girls
With my boys
Walkin' out the sex shop
Pockets full of sex toys

And we rang the noise
Like you wouldn't believe
At sixteen started gettin' tattoos
Up my sleeve

So went up to thirty-two
Takin' part in dirty deeds
So if you want to get high
I got whatever you need

And if you want to get 'em up
I ain't afraid to bleed
I've been to y.a. three times
So don't you step to me

And while you bragged to your parents
'bout your A's and be 's
I was underneath the bleechers
With a t.h.c, a g.e.d, a chemical dependancy
And a p.h.d in whiskey and stoner-ology

Met the break-through
In ways to use technology
And you can learn from my mistakes
But its more fun to follow me

And its never too late
I don't hate who I've become
So that smokin' at the one
And we remember when we were young

[Chorus]

When we were young
When we were young
When we were young
When we were young

When we were young
When we were young
When we were young
When we were young
