He`s much the same as anyone - he don`t do what he`s told
He got hostile on his school report - and he leaves his mother cold
His father owned a bakery - one day they found him hanged
It ain`t good to be free in little Italy - his son`s the leader of the gang

[Chorus]
Restless youth - restless youth
Restless youth - restless youth

He soon found out he could not work - the money was no good
This child of the city hit the welfare kitty - did some runnin` for the hoods

And the logic of the street was such - that everything was bent
There`s a lot of white collars - stealing government dollars - wouldn`t notice
Such a little percent.
