I Don’t Want To Grow Up

When I’m lyin’ in my bed at nite
I don’t wanna grow up
Nothing ever seems to turn out right
And I don’t wanna grow up

How do you move in a world of fog that’s always changing things
Makes the wish that I could be a dog

When I see the price that you pay
I don’t wanna grow up
I don’t ever wanna be that way
And I don’t wanna grow up

Seems that folks turn into things that they never want
The only thing to live for is today…

I’m gonna put a hole in my T.V. set
I don’t wanna grow up
Open up the medicine chest
I don’t wanna grow up

I don’t wanna have to shout it out
I don’t want my hair to fall out
I don’t wanna be filled with doubt
I don’t wanna be a good boy scout
I don’t wanna have to learn to count
I don’t want the biggest amount
No I don’t wanna grow up

Well when I see my parents fight
I don’t wanna grow up
They all go out and drinkin’ all night
And I don’t wanna grow up

I’d rather stay here in my room
Nothin’ out there but sad and gloom
I don’t wanna live in a big old tomb on grand street

When I see the 5 o’clock news
I don’t wanna grow up
Comb their hair and shine their shoes
I don’t wanna grow up

Stay around in my old hometown
I don’t wanna put no money down
I don’t wanna get me a big old loan
Work them fingers to the bone
I don’t wanna float on a broom
Fall in love, get married then boom
How the hell did I get here so soon

No I don’t want to grow up
