I swear she has the best hair,
I love her ass,
I love her eyes,
I love her tits,
I love her thighs,
I like her smile.
She's so rad,
I really want to be with her,
'cause she's the kind of girl...
I wish I had a fake I.D.,
that said i'm seventeen
and it'd be so good,
and she can tell her mom its me,
and we could be together... it could be
so good
so good
I wanna be with her,
I think I should
but I know it can't
why can't it be?...
just 'cause there's some dumb law that says she has to be at least 18.

Her mom says I am too old,
but i'm only 21,
I feel so young,
i'm having fun,
and what if she's the one for me?
I'd have to wait till she's 18 to see if she and I will ever be
and thats not fair,
I say screw that law 'cause I don't care,
I think it's wrong 'cause I can't wait that long.
If her mom understood then I could be with her,
I wish she would,
but I know she can't,
so I think to myself
oh why cant it be?...
just 'cause theres some dumb law that says she as to be at least 18.

If her mom heard this song maybe she would understand.
Maybe she might get mad that I am in a band,
I had this dream she liked it, though,
I dreamt I saw her in the front row,
waving her hands up in the air,
singing as though she didn't care.

Oh it could be,
so good,
so good,
I wanna be with her,
I think I should,
but I know I can't,
why cant it be?
Just 'cause theres some dumb law that says she has to be at least 18.
If her mom understood then I could be with her,
I wish she would,
but I know she can't,
so I think to myself,
oh why can't it be?
Just 'cause theres some dumb law that says she as to be at least 18.

    General CommentLol.
    I think the meaning of this is obvious, anyone with some intelligence can see what it is about.
    Some guy who wants to have a relationship with a younger girl, but can't, as he is 21, and she is under 18.
    I think the law in America goes someone over 18 can't have a relationship with someone under 18, I am not sure as I am English.
    And her mother does not approve of the relationship, but he wishes he could be with her.

    General Commentyeah, it's a pretty straightforward song. most of theirs are.

    in any case, i'm just curious as to whether this was based on an actual struggle, or if it's just a song about a hypothetical conflict.
