Seventeen's Song

Pretty Young Thing

Poisoned by stress
Plagued with intelligence 

Burning with aspirations
And crashing in 24 hour time locks
so ambitious for a juvenile

Dancing Queen
Only 17

She survives until the weekend
She lives for Friday night
And the laughs in between long days

Her hair glows in opposite headlights
It’s late in the shotgun of her best friend’s car

Driving away from the suburbs and stress
Headlong into the city lights

Uptown Girl
She’s looking so fine

On a jaywalk to the Piano Man
To dance to a memory
She’s not really sure how it goes

she is young!
Ideal nostalgia is her present

Dancing on the streets

Girls just wanna have fun
Want  to be the one to walk in the sun
Whatchu gonna do with your life?

She won’t worry about that now
She’s young!

It’s a girl, my lord!
Take it easy
