Some people work very hard
And some people just die tryin'
And if I had something to believe in
I'd be right beside them dyin'.

Some people get it in the end
And some people just don't get it
And other people have too much to do at home
And so they say forget it.

And as it occurs to me
These modern boys and girls
These modern boys and girls
These modern boys and girls are in it with us
It's not just here and now
It's all along the world
These modern boys and girls, will they forgive us?

And what do you say
When someone asks you what to expect?
Smile and be brave
And always be prepared for them to send their regrets.

Some people never amount to much
And some don't amount to any
And any roll of coins that you might have around the house
Just lacks a penny, yi-ah!

And as it occurs to me
Well, these modern boys and girls
These modern boys and girls
These modern boys and girls are in it with us
It's not just here and now
It's all along the world
These modern boys and girls, will they forgive us?

Yes, these modern boys and girls
These modern boys and girls
These modern boys and girls are in it with us
It's not just here and now
It's all along the world
And these modern boys and girls will they forgive us?
I hope so.
