When you gonna grow up
Momma always said
Are you gonna walk around with a silly grin
And a bubble on your head
A spaceship landed by the mall
There was a big parade
Everybody got laid
And they burned all the books and the Chevrolets
They grow so fast they never crawl
If you get tired of satellite flyers
And fame has let you down
Under the wire and over the moon
I'm around

When you gonna grow up
Momma always said
But I just wanna walk around with a dollar bill
And a coat that never sheds
A spaceship landed on the water
It was a holiday
For the underpaid
Everybody got a haircut and lemonade
And they smiled just like it was their father

Play me a groove one for my radio one for my love
That came and went
So many stories, hey man I'm sorry.
Joe, this is just a song to pay the rent

...When you gonna grow up
