Lyrics


Well, Billy rapped all night about his suicide How he'd kick it in the head when he was twenty-five Speed jive, don't want to stay alive When you're twenty-five And Wendy's stealing clothes from Marks & Sparks And Freddy's got spots from ripping off the stars from his face Funky little boat race Television man is crazy saying we're juvenile delinquent wrecks Oh, man, I need TV when I've got T.Rex Oh brother, you guessed I'm a dude, dad

All the young dudes (hey dudes!) Carry the news (where are you?) Boogaloo dudes (stand up, come on) Carry the news All the young dudes (I want to hear you) Carry the news (I want to see you) Boogaloo dudes (I want to talk to you, all of you) Carry the news (now)

Lucy looks sweet 'cause he dresses like a queen But he can kick like a mule, it's a real mean team But we can love Oh yes, we can love And my brother's back at home with his Beatles and his Stones We never got it off on that revolution stuff What a drag, too many snags Now I've drunk a lot of wine and I'm feeling fine Got to race some cat to bed Oh, is that concrete all around Or is it in my head? Yeah I'm a dude, dad

All the young dudes (hey dudes) Carry the news (where are you?) Boogaloo dudes (stand up) Carry the news All the young dudes (I want to hear you) Carry the news (I want to see you) Boogaloo dudes (I want to relate to you) Carry the news All the young dudes (what dudes?) Carry the news (let's hear the news, come on) Boogaloo dudes (I want to kick you) Carry the news

All the young dudes (With the glasses) Carry the news (I want you) Boogaloo dudes (I want you in the front) Carry the news (now) (Now, you're his friends) All the young dudes (now you bring him down) ('Cause I want him) Carry the news Boogaloo dudes (I want him right here) (Bring him, come on) Carry the news (bring him) (Here you go) All the young dudes (I've wanted to do this for years) Carry the news (There you go!) Boogaloo dudes (How'd it feel?) Carry the news
