"Opposite of Adults (feat. MGMT)" as written by Chidera Anamege, Noah Beresin, Ben Goldwasser and Andrew Vanwyngarden....
Aye yo I once was a kid all I had was a dream
Mo' money mo' problems, when I get it I'm a pile it up
Yeah I'm dope wonder bread we can toast
So fresh how we flow, everybody get their style from us
I once was a kid with the other little kids
Now I'm whippin' up shows and 'em fans goin' wild with us
Tell mommy I'm sorry
This life is a party

Remember you was a kid
Reminisce days of the innocence
Now it's Chiddy Bang, Google me in the images
Follow me, follow me I'm the leader
And when I park cars I don't pay for the meter
I remember I was younger as a kid it was the best
I used touch on all the pretty girls at recess
I'm at my peak yes, I won't leave yet
Serial style, cereal aisle need Chex
I can make these rappers run like a hard drill
Rock band show you how the guitar feel
And I could care less how y'all feel
I got the flow to make a bitch do a cartwheel
This is that good just puff it and relax bro
And you can get it free don't worry 'bout the tax though
And Xaphoone, thank you for the crack
But I play a Ron Bergundy I anchor on the track like that

Aye yo I once was a kid all I had was a dream
Mo' money no problems, when I get it I'm a pile it up
Now I'm dope wonder bread we can toast
So fresh how we flow, everybody get their style from us
I once was a kid with the other little kids
Now I'm whippin' up shows and 'em fans goin' wild with us
Tell mommy I'm sorry
This life is a party
I'm never growing up

Can I please get a little bit of knowledge
Somebody tell Roth that I don't love college
'Cause the real world's kinda like Real World
And it's drama so you are Svetlana and I'm just a rhymer
Swimmin' in the water tryin' to dodge the piranhas and fly to Bahamas
Pretty little momma, Chiddy in the spot
Where you at pretty lady show me what you got
They say why you rappin' for the kids for
I said my clothes come fitted, the Lids store
This summer you can catch me on a big tour
I'm high grade, I think they need to quiz more
Let me get wit' ya, don't let the kid hit ya
I'm the photo album Valletta has, big picture
The rule is, the dude is, so up, so chuck I'm a cool kid

Aye yo I once was a kid all I had was a dream
Mo' money mo' problems, when I get it I'm a pile it up
Now 'm dope wonder mm bread we can toast
So fresh how we flow, everybody get their style from us
I once was a kid with the other little kids
Now I'm whippin' up shows and 'em fans goin' wild with us
Tell mommy I'm sorry
This life is a party
I'm never growing up

Aye I once was a kid all I had was a dream
Mo' money mo' problems, when I get it I'm a pile it up
Yeah I'm dope wonderbread we can toast
So fresh how we flow, everybody get their style from us
I once was a kid with the other little kids
Now I'm whippin' up shows and 'em fans goin' wild with us
Tell mommy I'm sorry
This life is a party
I'm never growing up

    Lyric CorrectionYes, the beginning is a mic check. He says:

    Fresh Kid Z, fresh Kid C, fresh Kid P, fresh Kid T
    (Oh yeah, we back)
    Oh, and Xaphoon by the way
    (Yeah Jones, yeah)
    Chiddy Bang
    And we pretty much amazing
    (Xaphoon: Can we hear your new song please?)
    I got you

    Fresh Kid Z - Zack Sewall (drummer)
    Fresh Kid C - Chidera “Proto” Anamege aka "Chiddy" (front man and lyrical genius)
    Fresh Kid P - Pat Braz (production and vocals from guitarist)
    Fresh Kid T - ???
    Xaphoon - Noah Bresin aka "Xaphoon Jones" (producer, keyboardist, and original beat maker)

    For those of you who don't know, Chiddy Bang started out a duo - Xaphoon did the beats while Chiddy did the vocals. They met during their first year of college and have been close friends ever since. If you listen closely after Chiddy says "yeah, Jones yeah", he snickers a little bit, so I think the opening was meant to be a little joke. He left Xaphoon out of the mic check, and was like, "oh yeah, and him, too", even though Xaphoon made the beat (which is so effing dope, by the way). It's kinda funny, in a nerdy, hip hop kinda way. Hahaha...

    I hope that helps clear things up. There seemed to be a lot of confusion about this.

    This song is great, but it doesn't compare to the other songs on their mixtape. Chiddy Bang is hot fire, and if you liked this, then you love their other tracks. Chiddy has an amazing, refreshing flow and Xaphoon's beats are original, creative, and unlike anything else we're hearing right now. Song pieces are sampled all the time, but the way Mr. Jones blends his beats is pure talent. They're definitely a group to look out for.

    I suggest:
    Fresh Like Us*
    Stylo (Remix)
    Dream Chasin*
    Silver Screens*
    Because
    Decline*
    Day 'N Night (Remix)
    Slow Down*

    * - Featured on "The Swelly Express", the same mixtape that "Opposite of Adults" is on

    Lyric CorrectionFirst off, the song is called 'Opposite Of Adults', obviously because it samples 'Kids' by MGMT.

    I've only heard this song for the first time just this week, and I think it's terrific. Not just the lyrics but the sampling by Xaphoon is awesome.

    Also, I've got a feeling "mo money mo problems" should be "no money no problems, when I get it i'm a pile em' up." Just because he doesn't have it yet but when he does he'll be smothered with cash but also with the problems of the fame and pressure that comes with those things.

    Also, the film clip to this song is freakin' fantastic.
