The Rent Is Always Due (Young)

1. Your silver child suspended in space
Crying out to you
Beckons you to yet another fine place
Where the trials of life are few

- Don't think you're living long, who says you are coming on
They won't remember you, the rent is always due

2. The cloudy men who take their place
And stand in line they do
Know not of the satin face
That separates them from you

- Just put your blue jeans on, grab your guitar and sing a song
Don't think I'm kidding you, the rent is always due

3. She rides a broom with gold-plated straw
She flutters around and she cries
The Brylcream fools just standing on
Digesting all their lives

- But then you walk along and she starts coming on
Beneath her melting broom, the rent is always due
