  • You can call me the sheik of tomorrow
    Sleeping on the burning sand
    You can call me the king of the cowboys
    'Cause everybody shakes my hand
    You can call me the soft shoe banana
    You can peel away my skin
    You can call me The Last of The Teenage Idols

    You can hang me in the morning
    Sell my ball and chain
    You can sink me in the ocean
    And I'll swim back home again
    You can make love to my secretary
    You can steal my money too
    You can call me the last of the big time spenders..aahh

    Grab your partners come inside. Outside there's no place to hide
    Tell your story to the man next door. He has heard it many times before
    Stayin' out late to play that thing. Ah, do that diddy dah dah a ding ding ding
    Hold my hand, here we go, come on baby don't be slow

    'Cause I'm The Last of the Teenage Idols!
    The Last of the Teenage Idols!

    Sixteen ducks, only one drake
    All flocked together in the middle of the lake
    They all had boats and row-a-thon
    A big sand castle at the bottom of the moat
    Rock three, who, me?
    I wouldn't be at all surprised
    Hold tight, all night, keeping me satisfied

    A big fat mama on her hands and knees
    Cryin' out baby, baby please, please, please
    I gotta keep going. I can't keep still
    I gotta get to the top of the hill
    Ok, Alright, I wanna stay out late tonight
    Hold my hand, don't be slow
    Come on baby here we go

    I'm the Last of the Teenage Idols
    The Last of the Teenage Idols
    The Last of the Teenage Idols
    Last of the Teenage Idols
    I'm the Last of the Teenage Idols
    The Last

    Sha la la la, sha la la la, sha la la woh...ohhh...

    I was the winner of the Teenage Idol competition
    And I knew in my heart we would never part, mmm...
    I was the winner of the Teenage Idol competition
    And I knew, mmmm, uhh...adlib and fade
