Kids in America
Kim Wilde Lyrics


Looking out a dirty old window
Down below the cars in the city go rushing by
I sit here alone and I wonder why

Friday night and everyone's moving
I can feel the heat but it's soothing, heading down
I search for the beat in this dirty town (downtown)

The young ones are going
(Downtown) the young ones are growing
We're the kids in America (whoa)
We're the kids in America (whoa)
Everybody live for the music-go-round

Bright lights, the music gets faster
Look, boy, don't check on your watch, not another glance
I'm not leaving now, honey, not a chance

Hot-shot, give me no problems
Much later, baby, you'll be saying nevermind
You know life is cruel, life is never kind (kind hearts)

Don't make a new story
(Kind hearts) don't grab any glory
We're the kids in America (whoa)
We're the kids in America (whoa)
Everybody live for the music-go-round

La la la la-la la-la
La la la la-la la, sing
La la la la-la la-la
La la la la-la la

Come closer, honey, that's better
Got to get a brand-new experience, feeling right
Oh, don't try to stop, baby, hold me tight

Outside a new day is dawning
Outside suburbia's sprawling everywhere
I don't want to go, baby

New York to east California
There's a new wave coming, I warn ya
We're the kids in America (whoa)
We're the kids in America (whoa)
Everybody lives for the music-go-round

La la la la-la la-la
La la la la-la la, sing
La la la la-la la-la
La la la la-la la

We're the kids
We're the kids
We're the kids in America
We're the kids
We're the kids
We're the kids in America
We're the kids
We're the kids
We're the kids in America

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Looking out a dirty old window
Down below the cars in the city go rushing by
I sit here alone and I wonder why
Friday night and everyone's moving
I can feel the heat but it's soothing, heading down
I search for the beat in this dirty town

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Downtown the young ones are going
Downtown the young ones are growing

[Chorus]
We're the kids in America (whoa)
We're the kids in America (whoa)
Everybody live for the music-go-round

[Verse 2]
Bright lights, the music gets faster
Look, boy, don't check on your watch,
Not another glance
I'm not leaving now, honey, not a chance
Hot-shot (shot), give me no problems
Much later, baby, you'll be saying nevermind
You know life is cruel, life is never kind

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Kind hearts don't make a new story
Kind hearts don't grab any glory

[Chorus]
We're the kids in America (whoa)
We're the kids in America (whoa)
Everybody live for the music-go-round

[Post-Chorus]
La la la la-la la-a
La la la la-la la (sing)
La la la la-la la-a
La la la la-la la

[Verse 3]
Come closer, honey, that's better
Got to get a brand new experience, feeling right
Oh, don't try to stop, baby, hold me tight
Outside a new day is dawning
Outside suburbia's sprawling everywhere
I don't want to go, baby

[Pre-Chorus 3]
New York to east California
There's a new wave coming, I warn ya

[Chorus]
We're the kids in America (whoa)
We're the kids in America (whoa)
Everybody lives for the music-go-round

[Post-Chorus]
La la la la-la la-a
La la la la-la la (sing)
La la la la-la la-a
La la la la-la la

[Outro]
We're the kids
We're the kids
We're the kids in America
We're the kids
We're the kids
We're the kids in America
We're the kids
We're the kids
We're the kids in America

Kids in America was he ultimate 80s song and it was perfectly arranged. Kim really was lucky to have that massive talent in her family. The only way for her was up.

Yes! This and Invincible by Pat Benatar, which also did a good job of capturing the feeling of what it was like to be a teen in the 80s.

Georgessiam

The song is still great. So is Kim, who sang it wonderfully.
But fortunately for the world, Murica is breathing down, finally!
