Mott The Hoople's, "All The Young Dudes"
The Funny Lyrics:
All the young dudes
carry the news
Why They're funny:
When I first heard this one, at 12-13 years, I actually thought the lyrics wanted to say 'the high school boys got an extra job; they deliver the morning papers (right, I'm not American). It was a few years before someone pointed out what it really says about the gay/glitterkid scene at the time. So I misunderstood the meaning of these lines.
