The old man turned off the radio
Kids sure play funny music these days
Said, "it looks to me like they've all gone wild
Well, man, could it be that the girls and boys
And the lonely voice of youth cries "What is truth?"
A little boy of three sittin' on the floor
"son, that's when people fight and die"
A young man of seventeen in Sunday school
And by the time another year has gone around
Can you blame the voice of youth for asking

The man with the book says "Raise your hand"
The man looked down at his long hair
Nobody seems to hear anymore
It was the cut of his clothes and the length of his hair
"What is truth?"
The young girl dancing to the latest beat
The young man speaking in the city square
Yeah, the ones that you're calling wild
This old world's wakin' to a new born day
You better help the voice of youth find
