[Verse 1]
B5 E5Oh, he's much the same as anyone, He don't do what he's told
F#5 E5 B5 E5 D5He got hostile on his school report, and he leaves his mother cold
B5 E5His father owned a bakery, one day they found him hanged
F#5 E5 B5 E5 D5It don't pay to be free in Little Italy, his son's the leader of the gang
[Chorus]
B5 E5Restless youth, restless youth
C#5 B5Restless youth, restless youth
[Verse 2]
B5 E5He soon found out he could not work, the money was no good
F#5 E5 B5 E5 D5This child of the city hit the welfare kitty, did some runnin' for the hoods
B5 E5And the logic of the street was such, that everything was bent
F#5 E5 B5 E5 D5There's a lot of white collars, stealing government dollars, wouldn't notice such a little percent
[Chorus]
B5 E5Restless youth, restless youth
C#5 B5Restless youth, restless youth
B5 E5Restless youth, restless youth
C#5 B5Oh, yes cause I've been a restless youth
[Verse 3]
B5 E5Now I went to his graduation, in some Brooklyn overnight jail
F#5 E5 B5 E5 D5He said he was a member of the rock'n roll nation, but his face was drawn 'n pale
B5 E5They gave him a suspended sentence, 'n he got straight on the phone
F#m E5 B5 E5 D5Called a big, big, man with a Miami tan 'n said "Hi I'm Al Capone, the second"
[Chorus]
B5 E5Restless youth, restless youth
C#5 B5What do you know, I'm the original Restless Youth
B5 E5Restless youth, restless youth
C#5 B5I've been on the phone to my Restless Youth
[Verse 4]
B5 E5Now his first hit came at seventeen, his second was his last
F#m E5 B5 E5 D5Some dealer ran screaming from the scene, as the bullets whistled past
B5 E5'N the cop that killed him shook his head 'n said "I swear the truth
F#m E5 B5 E5 D5When I know it was some old, old man 'n not a restless youth."
[Chorus]
B5 E5Restless youth, restless youth
C#5 B5Restless youth, restless youth
B5 E5Restless youth, restless youth
C#5 B5Go by the rules if you are, oh, a Restless Youth
[Verse 5]
B5 E5Now the moral of this story is that all he saw was greed
F#m E5 B5 E5 D5Legal, illegalities 'n all them politician thieves
B5 E5Good people of the U.S.A. if you want your kids to grow
F#m E5 B5 E5 D5Then check your harvest carefully, don't reap; before you sow
[Chorus]
B5 E5Restless youth, restless youth
C#5 B5Restless youth, I just know he's a restless youth
B5 E5Restless youth, restless youth
C#5 B5You're gonna lose cause you know you're a Restless Youth...
