When I grew up, well it felt great 
I watched how others took their fate 
Some felt afraid and undefended, so they got mean 
And they pretended what they knew made them belong more than you. 
I'm sure you know there's lots to learn 
But that's not your fault, that's just your turn, yeah, yeah 

Teenagers, kick our butts, tell us what the future will bring 
Teenagers look at us, we have not solved everything 

We drink and smoke to numb our pain 
We read junk novels on the plane 
We use authority for show so we can be a little smarter 
We still can grow, and many do 
It's when we stop we can't reach you 
We feel the loss, you feel the blame 
We're scared to lose, don't be the same, hey hey 

Teenagers, kick our butts, tell us what the future will bring 
Teenagers, look at us, we have not solved everything 

The hometown brought its hero in 
To speak at the high school gym 
He took a breath, he took a chance 
He strode up in his leather pants 
And said, "Gee, thanks... but 
I'm here today because I fought for what I felt and what I thought 
They put me down they, were just wrong 
And now it's they who don't belong, oh, oh 

Teenagers, kick our butts, tell us what the future will bring 
Teenagers look at us, we have not solved everything 

And when the media tries to act your age 
Don't be seduced, they're full of rage 
Find your voice, do what it takes 
Make sure you make lots of mistakes 
And find the future that redeems 
Give us hell, give us dreams 
And grow and grow and grow 

And someday when some teenagers come to kick your butts 
Well then like I do try to 
Love 
Kick our butts 
Love 
Kick our butts 
Oh I love 
Kick our butts
