Lyrics:

Tearing up the rules
To play a better game
Fast times, small reward
We’re learning quicker the moves
Fooling smiling sharper feeling better than the rest
Kicking never changing it’s an easier test
What it seems to matter when you just don’t have a clue
Laughing and joking

When you fall out of favor with a smarter set
Tell me what you’re gonna feel
Back up and pray now when you’re falling from grace
You watch the smile on the big man’s face, fall
Man about town charm racking your brains
Tell me what you want to do
Stop, stop fooling around cut out when you can
you know they’re gonna keep calling you

The young pretender
Foolish and blind
The young pretender
Foolish and blind

Curious idea
All is given to you
Sound advice watching you change
Standing up and counting
Crazy careless wasting precious time on one and all
Tacky entertainment, vicious watching all the rest
What it seems to matter when you just don’t have a clue
Speaking and hurting

When you fall out of favor with a smarter set
Tell me what you’re gonna feel
Back up and pray now when you’re falling from grace
You watch the smile on the big man’s face, fall
Man about town charm racking your brains
Tell me what you want to do
Stop, stop fooling around cut out when you can
you know they’re gonna keep calling you

The young pretender
Foolish and blind
The young pretender
Foolish and blind

Speaking out of turn
Ooooh!
Curious ideas
Ooooh!

When you fall out of favor with a smarter set
Tell me what you’re gonna feel
Back up and pray now when you’re falling from grace
You watch the smile on the big man’s face
Man about town charm racking your brains
Tell me just what to do
Stop, stop fooling around cut out when you can
you know they’re gonna keep calling you

The young pretender
Foolish and blind
The young pretender
Foolish and blind

The young pretender

The young pretender
Foolish and blind
The young pretender
Foolish and blind…
