When You're Young
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros Lyrics


Uncle Chive sits in by the bar through the night
Won't you serve me one more memory
Oh, when we, we were young

In the sun there was ugly Kate by the sea
With the belly full of little me
Oh the song that she sung

When you're young
There's a world in a tiny town
Where a girl chases rabbits round all day
We play always when you're young

I can see far away
Heaven help the one percent
We're not going to pay our rent on time
I can see only grey
All the world looks rosy when you're young

Johnny Rass
He's a loaded gun full of song
Let him kingdom come undone
Oh it's fun when you're young

When you're young
All the world is lost in the sun
And the world can do no harm
It seems we dream when you're young

I can see far away
Heaven help the one percent
We're not going to pay our rent on time
I can see shady grays
Money in for cigarettes, hello money place your bets

I can see color days
Swimming at the summer shy
Tell the teacher I'm out of my time
I can see only grey
All the world looks rosy when you're young

Son, we wish you well
Good health and fun
When you're young

Uncle Chive, with his teeth in hand
Said "Goodnight, won't you please sing me a lullaby
Of when I was young"

Let him kingdom come undone
Oh it's fun when you're young

When you're young 
All the world is lost in the sun
And the world can do no harm
It seems we dream when you're young

I can see far away
Heaven help the one percent
We're not going to pay our rent on time

Said "Goodnight, won't you please sing me a lullaby
