Lyrics:

1, 2, 2 2 2.....

I'm a young man baby
And a young man I must be
I've got to live young baby
And love young baby
And see what I can see

So remember
That you can't tie a mustang down
No you can't tie a mustang down
And you can't keep an ocean in a cup
Whoa no you can't keep a mustang down
Or up

Now I've only got one heart baby
And I'm gonna keep it here
Oh by the way that I hold ya
You might think I love ya
But I never said I did

So don't impose your will upon me
I can't stand the sound of chains
Oh don't try to chain me, or blame me, or name me
Oh baby, ease up on the reins

And remember
That you can't tie a mustang down
No you can't tie a mustang down
Oh you can't keep an ocean in a cup
Whoa no you can't keep a mustang down
Or up

I'm a young man baby
And a young man I must be
I've got to live young baby
And love young baby
And see what I can see

So remember
That you can't tie a mustang down
No you can't tie a mustang down
And you can't keep an ocean in a cup
Whoa no you can't keep a mustang down
Or up
You can't...
