Messiahs Die Young
Men Without Hats Lyrics


All of those things that I wanted to say
Well you can take those things and throw them all away, hey hey

Because he who points the finger well only he gets hung
That's why I don't to be a messiah, messiahs die young

All of those things that I wanted to be
Well you can take those things and throw them back at me, he he

Because he is only just as good as he who is the one
That's why I don't to be a messiah, messiahs die young

Messiahs die young
Messiahs die young!

They die young,
Messiahs die young!
Messiahs die young
Messiahs die young!
They die young
Messiahs!

Why get in line if you don't want to wait
They say that time is money, sell your watch today, hey hey
And if you've never been to China well the slow boat leaves at one
That's why I don't want to be a messiah, messiahs die
I don't want to be a messiah, messiahs die
I don't want to be a messiah! I just want to have fun
Not die young
Messiahs die young!
They die young
Messiahs die young!
Messiahs die young
Messiahs die young!
Messiahs die young
Messiahs

What a brilliant song. Musically, lyrically. Sublime.

The song name says all of it Too old to rock'n'roll, to young to die. Great band, great music.

I think this is the best track of the LP but I like it all. I was travelling to Africa in '83 or '84 and stopped off at a mate's place in Oxford. I saw this LP for sale in the UK. They were a big hit over there.

the 60's and 80's music is best, overall.

From the 50's to the 90's, reaching the peak of creativity in the late 80's; since the New Millenium, creativity has been hitting bottom...

@Mogtepyigsoloth Very little of the popular music recorded during the 70's is disco. And it's safe to say that most of the greatest rock music ever created was recorded during the 70's.

@Mogtepyigsoloth - Plenty of great non-Disco music in the 70's and the best IMO.. Led Zepplin, Pink Floyd.. the list is massive. And you prob never heard good Disco.

Wha .. you don't like the 70's ?
