"I Don't Wanna Grow Up" as written by and Tom Waits....
When I'm lyin' in my bed at night, I don't wanna grow up
Nothin' ever seems to turn out right, I don't wanna grow up
How do you move in a world of fog that's always changing things
Makes me wish that I could be a dog

Well when I see the price that you pay, I don't wanna grow up
I don't ever want to be that way, I don't wanna grow up
Seems like folks turn into things that they'd never want
The only thing to live for is today

I'm gonna put a hole in my TV set and I don't wanna grow up
Yeah gonna open up the medicine chest and 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 wanna have the biggest amount
I don't wanna grow up

Well when I see my parents fight, I don't wanna grow up
They all go out 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 Grant Street

When I see the five o'clock news, I don't wanna grow up
They comb their hair and shine their shoes, I don't wanna grow up
Rather stick around the 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 learn to float a broom, fall in love and get married then boom
How the hell did it get here so soon
I don't wanna grow up
