Young Blood Lyrics


I saw her standin' on the corner
A yellow ribbon in her hair
I couldn't stop myself from shoutin:
Look a-there! Look a-there!
Look a-there! Look a-there!

Young Blood, young blood, young blood
I can't get you out of my mind

I took one look and I was fractured
I tried to walk but I was lame
I tried to talk but I just stuttered:
What's your name? What's your name?
What's your name? What's your name?

Young blood, young blood, young blood
I can't get you out of my mind

What crazy stuff! She looked so tough
I had to follow her all the way home
Then things went bad; I met her dad
He said, "You'd better leave my daughter alone"

I couldn't sleep a wink for tryin'
I saw the rising of the sun
And all night my heart was cryin':
You're the one, you're the one
You're the one, you're the one!

Young blood, young blood, young blood
I can't get you out of my mind

Young blood, young blood, young blood
I can't get you out of my mind

Young Blood
  • This song is written by the legendary songwriting team of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, and was released as the B-Side of The Coasters' hit "Searchin'." The Coasters were a spin-off from an earlier group The Robins, with the members Carl Gardner and Bobby Nunn. To this duo, they added Billy Guy and Leon Hughes and became The Coasters. The group had one final re-arrangement a few years later to reach the classic line-up of Carl Gardner, Billy Guy, Cornell Gunter, and Will "Dub" Jones. Their manager was none other than Lester Sill, Leiber and Stoller's longtime mentor.

    Jerry Leiber tells the story of how "Young Blood" was written, in the book Hound Dog: The Leiber & Stoller Autobiography . He was on his way to dinner with the family of Atlantic Records executive Jerry Wexler, when Jerry gave him a challenge. Wexler sprung the title "Young Blood" on Leiber while they were driving to Wexler's home, and asked him if he could write lyrics to go with it. Leiber asked "How far are we from your house?" and when Wexler told him it was fifteen minutes, Leiber responded "I'll have the lyrics finished before we get there." And he did!
  • The Beatles played this at their audition for Decca Records in 1962. Their version can be found on the album The Beatles Live At The BBC.
