Die young, stay pretty 
Die young, stay pretty 
Die young, stay pretty 
Die young, stay pretty 

 Deteriorate in your own time (Deteriorate in your own time)
Tell 'em you're dead and wither away
Are you living alone or with your family?
A dried up twig on your family tree?
Are you waiting for the reaper to arrive?
Or just to die by the hand of love?
Love for youth, love for youth 
So, die young and stay pretty 

 Leave only the best behind  Slipping sensibilities
 Tragedy in your own dream, oh

Oh, you sit all alone in your rocking chair
 Transistor pressed against an ear
Were you waiting at the bus stop all your life?
Or just to die by the hand of love?
Love for youth, love for youth 
So live fast 'cause it won't last

 Dearly near senility (Dearly near senility)
Was it good or maybe you won't tell?

Die young, and stay pretty 
You gotta live fast, 'cause it won't last, no no no
Die young, and stay pretty 
Live fast, 'cause it won't last, no no
Die young, stay pretty 
You gotta live fast, 'cause it won't last, no no no
Die young, and stay pretty 
Live fast, 'cause it won't last, no no no
