It’s great to be young, so long as you get older.
Don’t lay it all on just one bet.
You’ve got to go easy, if you go to the Manhattan.
If you want to see Sunday, better watch your step.

Jake the Snake is sneaking in the alley.
He’s got dobermans’ to keep him safe.
He’s also got Roberta, struttin’ on the dance floor.
Mess with his, Jake will mess your face.

Shakes and Weasel looking for some yokels,
gonna break heads, gonna cut someone.
Stay in the light, stay out of corners,
gotta be nice, or you won’t see the sun.

Me, I’m loose and I might get lucky.
Got my arms around a woman and she’s holding tight.
Out to the car, passion in the back seat,
sleazy and sweaty on Saturday night.

It’s great to be young, so long as you get older.
Don’t lay it all on just one bet.
You gotta go easy, if you go to the Manhattan,
sleazy and sweaty with no regret.
