The Lyrics

Parody inspired by after hearing the losses thousands of young athletes in both college and high school who had a bright future ahead of them, and lost it all too goddam soon! Thanks to a numbe of motherfucking rare diseases including every form of cancer extant on this plant, car crashes, plane crashes, drowning, suicide, the list goes on.
You know, my good friend, I gotta say
The headline news breaks hearts away
Aw but sooner or later it comes down to fate
But it might as well be the young

Well, my good friend’s a swimmer, watched him compete
They named you an award you rested at peace
Aw, but they never told you the price your health pays
For things that cancer might have done
Why do these dudes die young
That’s why I ask
Why do these dudes die young
Why do these dudes die young

You might have heard I play in a high taxing sport
We ain’t too speedy and we ain’t too slow
We might be cheering a bit too loud
Aw but that doesn’t hurt no one

So hey there my good friend give me advice
Lay out a life tip and I’ll think through it twice
The gray sports bleachers you sit on with Bryce
Do not always mean fun
Buddy why do these dudes die young
Whoa
I tell ya
Why do these dudes die young
Why do these dudes die young

You got a nice purple sweat and a party after graduation
You got a brand new soul
Mmm, and a trophy of gold
But my buddy they didn’t you quite enough information
You didn’t read this post
When you were reading waiting for the toast
(Oh woah woah)

They say there’s a heaven for those who are great
Some say it’s better but I say it ain’t
I’d rather laugh with my college buds than cry with the family
The college buds are much more fun

You know why do these dudes die young
I tell ya
Why do these dudes die young
Why do these dudes die young

Well my mother told me reasons these dudes end up with an sudden death
Aw she always cared for me
And yes she always said a grieving for me oh woah woah

You know, you know, you know, my good friend, I gotta say
The headline news breaks hearts away
Aw but sooner or later it comes down to fate
But it might as well be the young
Why do these dudes die young

I’m telling you buddy
You know that why do these dudes die young
Why do these dudes die young
Why do these dudes
Why do these dudes die young
