No I'm not mad but I think they forget
What it's like and how hard it is to be a teenager
This is a new day and age we read a different book
Where Elvis ain't the rage and polyester ain't the look

And will we change at all when we get old?
Or will we be the same, never do what we're told?
Well that depends on you are you doing the right thing?
It's not about control
It's about you and me and understanding

Teenage politics it's too confusing
Politics shmolitics it's too confusing
(2x)

Is it time again to disagree
About anything, and everything and what's on TV
It's a vicious circle, never ending
A linear equation worldly extending

(refrain)

No I'll never be like you, I'll never ever be like you, oh no
No I'll never be like you, I'll never ever be like you, oh no!
I'm just like you

    General CommentPut on songlyrics.com in honor of (duh) MxPx and my best friend who just went away to college... he said it was his "theme song", so...yea. It's special. I like how it states how being a teenager can be tough and not always fun and games. Sorry If some words are wrong, I tried!

    General CommentI think song has to do about our parents excepting that "it's a new day and age." We aren't going to like the same kind of music they did way back when (ref. to elvis) or where what they used to.
    This song means that times have changed since our parents were teenagers and our parents need to except this. It also has to do with how parents don't understand what it's like to be a teenager. "...but i think they forgot What it's like and how hard it is to be a teenager ..." This may be wrong, I'm pretty sure it's not though.
