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

The song is 40 years old, and it hasn't lost any of it's awesomeness !!!

I agree but they look not normal, as they are on drugs! Still a great song!

Ralph Hicks

I wholeheartedly agree 👍

Pedro Ruiz jr

I agree mucho 😗

Armando Cardona

Like most 80's music it doesn't seem to age or go out of style. The 1980's were truly God's decade.

Chris Crawford

And they still use this song in movies and commercials and stuff! Classic!

James Law

I wish I was there 😪. Fortunately the 80's have left these precious relics for all to enjoy on YouTube!
