The Jam

The Jam were an English punk rock/New Wave/mod revival band active during the late 1970s and early 1980s. They were formed in Woking, Surrey. While they shared the "angry young men" outlook and fast tempos of their punk rock contemporaries, The Jam wore smartly tailored suits rather than ripped clothes, and they incorporated a number of mainstream 1960s rock and R&B influences rather than rejecting them, placing The Jam at the forefront of the mod revival movement. more »

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh
Life is timeless, days are long when you're young
You used to fall in love with everyone
Any guitar and any bass drum
Life is a drink and you get drunk when you're young
Life is new and there's things to be done
You can't wait to be grown up
Acceptance into the capital world
You pull on some weed, then you pull on someone when you're young

But you find out life isn't like that
It's so hard to comprehend
Why you set up your dreams to have them smashed in the end

But you don't mind you've got time on your side
And they're never gonna make you stand in line
You're just waiting for the right time

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh
You're fearless and brave, you can't be stopped when you're young
You swear you're never-ever gonna work for someone
No corporations for the new-age sons
Tears of rage roll down your face
But still you say it's fun

And you find out life isn't like that
It's so hard to understand
Why the world is your oyster but your future's a clam

It's got you in its grip before you're born
It's done with the use of a dice and a board
They let you think you're king but you're really a pawn

Whoa-oh, whoa-oa
Whoa-oh

You're fearless and brave, you can't be stopped when you're young
You used to fall in love with everyone
Any guitar and any bass drum
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh (going home, going home)
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh (going home, going home)
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh (going home, going home)
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh (going home, going home)
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh (going home, going home)
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh...
