You can't blame the youth
You can't fool the youth
You can't blame the youths, of today
You can't fool the youth

You teachin' youths to learn in school
That cow jump over moon
You teachin' youths to learn in school
That the dish run away with spoon

So you can't blame the youth, when they don't learn
You can't fool the youths
You can't blame the youth, of today

You teach the youths about Christopher Columbus
And you said he was a very great man
You teach the youth about Marco Polo
And you said he was a very great man
You teach the youths about the Pirate Hawkins
And you said he was a very great man
You teach the youths about Pirate Morgan
And you said he was a very great man

So you can't blame the youths, of today
You can't fool the youths
You can't blame the youths
You can't fool the youths

All these great men were doing,
Robbing, raping, kidnapping, and killing 
So-called great men, were doing, 
Robbing, raping, kidnapping, and killing

So you can't blame the youths
You can't fool the youths
You can't blame the youths
You can't fool the youths

When every Christmas come
You buy the youth a pretty toy gun
When every Christmas come
You buy the youth a fancy toy gun

So you can't blame the youth
You can't fool the youth
You can't blame the youth
You can't fool the youth

Cause what was hidden from the wise and the prudish
Is now revealed to the babes and the suckling
Cause what was hidden from the wise and the prudish
Is now revealed to the babes and the suckling

Lord call upon the youth
Cause you know the youth is strong
Jah Jah call upon the youth
Cause He know the youth is strong

So you can't blame the youth
You can't fool the youth
You can't blame the youth (save your children)
You can't fool the youth
Don't blame them
