Do you know what you're looking for?
Streets of gold, fame and fortune?
You didn't fancy working in a factory
But your Mum and Dad didn't agree.
You slept in Waterloo Station at first
But now you've moved to a posher squat
You wonder where your next meal will come from
Still, it's better than living at home.
You're looking tired 'cause it's been three weeks
Since you changed your clothes or washed your feet
But you're learning fast all the time
How to cadge cigarettes and pills.
I don't condemn what you've done
I know what it is to be young
You're only searching for toaday
To see the answers about yesterday.
And I hope you find.
