I don't wanna grow up

by 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
When I see the price that you pay
I don´t wanna grow up
I don´t ever wanna 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
I don´t wanna grow up
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 and drinking 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 Grand Street

When I see the 5 o´clock news
I don´t wanna grow up
Comb their hair and shine their shoes
I don´t wanna grow up
Stay around in my 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 float a broom
Fall in and get married then boom
How the hell did I get here so soon
I don´t wanna grow up
