The Lyrics

Goodbye, Super Girl
The other day you came of age
You had then empowered yourself
As you left home for the stage.
You shed your school strait jacket
And widened your world so dark
But the writing's on the wall, now
That you grand jeted the shark.

And it seems to me that youth is
Always wasted on the young
It doesn't last forever
Like an old sweet song.
And it fades like a crimson sunrise
A rainbow in the mist
You soar and then you start to fall
When first you get a kiss.

You were on your on your way
An inner valkyre emerged
The ballet needed a super girl
To compliment all its danseurs.
Come on up for air
Is he sucking out your brain
As he's sucking on your face
All this romance is simply a strain.

Refrain : And it seems to me that youth is
Always wasted on the young...

Goodbye, Super Girl
The other day you came of age
You had then empowered yourself
As you left home for the stage.
Goodbye, Super Girl
Who's the young man that's clipping your wings
You're being grounded and going home again
While you're wearing wedding rings.

And it seems to me that youth is
Always wasted on the young...

By the way, does Seth get the cat?

Thank you, Alvin. What I mean by grand jeted the shark is that for the past two months 9 Chickweed Lane has been nothing else but Edda and Amos making love. At this point it is getting old.

Thanks, UKV and Mark. That story line made me think of Candle in the Wind - but not that other kind of wind.
