Buy him this keyboard! He's a natural...
now I've got to jump over to youtube so I can finish the song.
I was in 11th grade when that song was popular. PARTY TIME!
In the high school halls...in the shopping malls...conform or be cast out! (I did not conform. I was cast out.) and it was GREAT!
Sprawling on the fringes of the city
Geometric order an insulated border
In between the bright lights
And the far unlit unknown
Growing up it all seems so one-sided
Opinions all provided, the future pre-decided
Detached and subdivided in the mass production zone
Nowhere is the dreamer or the misfit so alone
In the high school halls
In the shopping malls
Conform or be cast out
In the basement bars
In the backs of cars
Be cool or be cast out
Any escape might help to smooth
The unattractive truth
But the suburbs have no charms to soothe
The restless dreams of youth
Drawn like moths we drift into the city
The timeless old attraction
Cruising for the action lit up like a firefly
Just to feel the living night
Where some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere to relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights
Get him some hits ;)
