[Chorus]
Serenade, in rhythm and swing.
Serenade, the gift that we bring.
Serenade, youth runs wild with the beat in their hearts.
Dance a wild dance, be torn apart.

Voices ringing in their heads.
Their crashing hands in time.
In sequence and in rhyme.
The chant of a thousand-fold.
The song of a million strong.
Echoes their perfect praise.

[Chorus]

From the mouths of babes and fools.
Hunted melodies.
With gracefulness and ease.
Compose their gifted words.
Orchestrate their moves.
Echo the perfect praise.
Serenade.

[Chorus]

Prophets tell the tale.
The legend and the lies.
The fable and the rhymes.
The chant of a thousand-fold.
The song of a billion strong.
Echoes the perfect praise.
Serenade!

[Chorus]

In rhythm and swing.
The gift that we bring.
Youth runs wild with the beat in their hearts.
Dance the wild dance, be torn apart.
Serenade, in rhythm and swing.
Serenade, in rhythm and swing.
Serenade, in rhythm and swing.
Serenade, in rhythm and swing.
Serenade, in rhythm and swing.
Serenade, the gift that we bring.
