This song is by Beat Happening and appears on the album Beat Happening (1985).

When I was young
I thought I was old
I sailed across the sea
To tokyo
I thought there must be more to this world
Than we're being told
When you're young
You can afford to be bold

When I was young
I sought
To win a young girl's heart
I chased that girl around a cherry tree
All I ended up winning
Was a couple of skinned knees
