"Electric Youth" lyrics
by Debbie Gibson

Zappin' it to ya
The pressure's ev'rywhere
Going right through ya
The fever's in the air
Oh yeah, it's there!
Don't underestimate the power
Of a life time ahead
Electric youth
Feel the power
You see the energy comin' up
Coming on strong
The future only belongs to the future itself
And the future is electric youth
It's true you can’t fight it
Live by it, the next generation
It's electric
We've got the most time to make the world go 'round
Oh can you spare a dime?
Place your bet on our sound
Come back to town
Don’t lose sight of potential master mind
Remember when you were young
Electric youth
Feel the power
You see the energy comin' up
Coming on strong
The future only belongs in the hands of itself
And the future is electric youth
It's true you can't fight it
Live by it, the next generation
It's electric
We do what comes naturally
You see now wait for the possibility
Don’t you see a strong resemblance to yourself?
Don't you think what we say is important?
Whatever it may be
The fun is gonna start with me
'Cause I'm bringing it back
Electric youth
Feel the power
You see the energy comin' up
Coming on strong
The future only belongs to the future itself
And the future is electric youth
It's true you can't fight it
Live by it
The next generation
It's electrifying
Electric youth
Feel the power
You see the energy comin' up
Coming on strong
The future only belongs in the hands of itself
And the future is electric youth
It's true you can't fight it
Live by it
The next generation
Electric youth
Feel the power
You see the energy comin' up
Coming on strong
The future only belongs to the future itself
And the future is electric youth
It's true you can't fight it
Live by it
The next generation
Inflation, flirtation, relaxation, elation
Generation of an electric youth
Debbie Gibson - Electric Youth (image via wikipedia)
     "Electric Youth" is the seventh single from American singer-songwriter-actress Deborah Gibson, and the second from her second album Electric Youth (LP 81932). Produced by Fred Zarr and engineered by Phil Castellano for BiZarr Music, Inc., it became one of her most famous songs, peaking at number eleven on the Billboard Hot 100 and fourteen on the UK Singles ChartDouglas Breitbart was executive producer.
     Gibson had written the song as a statement about how young people of that era were seen and how their ideas were often ignored. As a teenager herself, she was a firm believer that the beliefs and ideas held by young people were just as important as those held by adults and the song reminded people of this. It also reminded them that the current youth would become the next generation of adults.
The video accompanying the song was nominated for a Moonman at the 1989 MTV Video Music Awards for Best Art Direction in a video. (source: Wikipedia)
