you do belong (teenage suicide) lyrics – donovan

a-one, two, three, four

since elvis h*t the stage
suicide has been the rage
in young america
cutting veins, popping pills
shooting guns won’t kill the ills
of young america

you, you do belong
you, you do belong

he took a couple of tabs
and he was feeling fab
just like he oughta
then he got quite a buzz
thought he was jesus
out on the water

you, you do belong
you, you do belong

well, you know i’m gonna jump
well, you know i’m gonna jump
don’t come no closer
let’s just try and work it out
let’s just try and work it out
i won’t come closer

you, you do belong
you, you do belong

you, i said you do belong
you, you do belong

you don’t care, i’ll show you
hold my breath till i’m blue
that’ll teach ya
well, you know i’ll run away
sell my body for my pay
news’ll reach ya

you, you do belong
you, you do belong

well, you wanna do well
in exams and excel
in a profession
why are we studying, anyhow?
there’s no jobs for us now
it’s an obsession

you, i said you do belong (yes, you do)
you, you do belong

oh, you just listen, listening
listen close to what i’m saying
you are mistaken
every doubt, every fear
is a lesson for you, dear
you are not forsaken

you, you do belong
you, you do belong
you, i said you do belong
you, i said you do belong
you do belong, you do belong
