(4/30) Song of the Week: Young Dumb & Broke by Khalid

Happy Monday! Welcome to HCUH’s weekly segment, Song of the Week, in which I link y’all to a random song that I personally consider a banger, bop, or jam. There is no “current-ness” requirement for these songs so everything is fair game. From the 30’s to two-thousand-and-eighteen and everything before, in-between, and after; every genre from pop to rap and maybe even country (but probably not): I bring you the Song of the Week, Monday 30th April.

This week’s song of the week is Young Dumb & Broke by Khalid, which got me through finals last semester. The nostalgic gentleness of this song was exactly what I needed to motivate myself while suffering in the snow and cold of Fall 2017. Young Dumb & Broke grounded me, reminded me that I am not alone in my place in the world and that every day, I become less young and less dumb (but more broke). Start your week off right with Young Dumb & Broke by Khalid!

 

Young Dumb & Broke

Khalid

So you’re still thinking of me

Just like I know you should I can not give you everything, you know I wish I could

I’m so high at the moment

I’m so caught up in this

Yeah, we’re just young, dumb and broke

But we still got love to give

While we’re young dumb

Young, young dumb and broke

Young dumb

Young, young dumb and broke

Young dumb

Young, young dumb and broke

Young dumb broke high school kids

Yadadadadadadada

Yadadadadadada

Yadadadadadadada

Young dumb broke high school kids

We have so much in common

We argue all the time

You always say I’m wrong

I’m pretty sure I’m right

What’s fun about commitment?

When we have our life to live

Yeah, we’re just young dumb and broke

But we still got love to give

While we’re young dumb

Young, young dumb and broke

Young dumb

Young, young dumb and broke

Young dumb

Young, young dumb and broke

Young dumb broke high school kids

Yadadadadadadada

Yadadadadadada

Yadadadadadadada

Young dumb broke high school kids

Jump and we think, leave it all in the game of love

Love

Run into sin, do it all in the name of fun

Fun

Whoa-oa-oa

I’m so high at the moment

I’m so caught up in this

Yeah, we’re just young, dumb and broke

But we still got love to give

While we’re young dumb

Young, young dumb and broke

Young dumb

Young, young dumb and broke

Young dumb

Young, young dumb and broke

Young dumb broke high school kids

Yadadadadadadada

Yadadadadadada

Yadadadadadadada

Young dumb broke high school kids

Yadadadadadadada

Yadadadadadada

Yadadadadadadada

Young dumb broke high school kids
