Do do do do do
Do do do do do

So young
We've discovered
Got them so confused
Don't mind putting the time in
It's shocking
That's what they all say now
When we're walking hand in hand
Eyes are on you and I

Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, you said it's time now
We've got them hanging on a string
There's no time for compromises
We got that killer thing
So young, so young
So young, so young
So young, so young
So young, so young

It's wrong to run for cover
We've got them in a spin
You don't mind sticking the slicker in
It's too late
That's what they all say now
When we're walking hand in hand
Eyes are on you and I

Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, you said it's time now
We've got them hanging on a string
There's no time for compromises
We got that killer thing
So young, so young
So young, so young
So young, so young
So young, so young

Do do do do do
Do do do
Do do do do do

Ooh yeah, ooh yeah, you said it's time now
We've got them hanging on a string
There's no time for compromises
We got that killer thing
So young, so young
So young, so young
So young, so young
So young, so young
So young, so young
So young, so young
So young, so young
So young, so young
So young, so young
So young, so young
So young
