Youth will be served

Another version is Youth will have its course. Let the young enjoy themselves while they can.

When all the world is young, lad,
And all the trees are green;
And every goose a swan, lad,
And every lass a queen;
Then they, for boot and horse, lad,
And round the world away;
Young blood must have its course, lad,
And every dog his day.
