20th Century Boy LyricsEdit

Friends say he's fine

Friends say he's good

Everybody says he's just like Robin Hood


I move like a cat

Talk like a rat

Sting like a bee

Babe, I wanna be your man


Well it's plain to see you were meant for me

I'm your toy

Your 20th century boy

20th century toy

I wanna be your boy

20th century toy

I wanna be your boy


Friends say he's fine

Friends say he's good

Everybody says he's just like Robin Hood


Fly like a plane

Drive like a car

Hold out your hand

Babe, I wanna be your man


Well it's plain to see you were meant for me

I'm your toy

Your 20th century boy

20th century toy

I wanna be your boy

20th century toy

I wanna be your boy
