The MC5 was an American rock band from Lincoln Park, Michigan, formed in 1964. The original band line-up consisted of vocalist Rob Tyner, guitarists Wayne Kramer and Fred "Sonic" Smith, bassist Michael Davis, and drummer Dennis Thompson. "Crystallizing the counterculture movement at its most volatile and threatening", according to Allmusic critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine, the MC5's far left political ties and anti-establishment lyrics and music positioned them as emerging innovators of the punk movement in the United States. Their loud, energetic style of back-to-basics rock 'n' roll included elements of garage rock, hard rock, blues rock, and psychedelic rock. more »

Back in Lincoln park where I was mostly raised
Hanging around town where I got totally crazed
Surrounded by bitches who just wouldn't give it in
Who thought that getting down was an unnatural sin
I'd whisper, "Baby, baby, help me, feel like I'm gonna bust
I need a healthy outlet for my teenage lust"

Yes, I do now baby
Won't my teenage lust go someday?

Moved into the city to improve my chances
I chased them at the bars and grabbed them at the dances
They'd huggy, snuggle, kissy but they'd never go all the way
They'd cringe like in terror when they hear me say
"Baby, baby, help, you really, really must
I need a healthy outlet for my teenage lust"

Yes, I do now, baby
My teenage lust won't make away much longer

I really need release
It means so much to me
How can a young Midwestern boy
Live in such misery, misery, misery, oh?

Then one day I had one perfect plan
I shake my ass and scream in a rock 'n' roll band
From now on there'll be no compromising
Rock 'n' roll music is the best advertising
"Baby, I can help, you know I got the guts
I'll be your healthy outlet for your teenage lust"

Come on, now
Come on, now

Come on darling, come on baby
This teenage lust is driving me crazy
I gonna have it baby, I can't do without
When I get the feeling, I got to work it out
I ain't got no time for messing around
So come on girl, you've got to get down
Come on darling, come on baby
This teenage lust is driving me crazy
