Original video
Should you go lookin' for a testament to youth in verse
Variations on the age old curse
You blame the stations when they play you like a fool
And like a fool you get played with

Baby, think twice
Maybe it's not all
Maybe it's not all right
Maybe it's not all
Maybe it's not all right

Finally, a decent picture of the exodus
I don't know much, but other singers know less
And can we control ourselves for once?
Keep our hands off each other, keep our minds on the sum
Keep our hands off each other, keep our minds on the sum of each other

So, should you go lookin' for a testament to youth in verse
Dedications to the same old curse
Don't blame the stations when they play you like a fool
And like a fool you get played with

Baby, think twice
Maybe it's not all
Maybe it's not all right

Oh, my sweet witness, can't you hear the voices?
They're telling the children to rock for their choices, oh
