Lyrics of Tom Waits - I Don't Want To Grow Up

I don’t wanna grow up
(Tom Waits)

I don’t wanna grow up en español

Well, when I'm lying in my bed at night
I don't wanna grow up
Nothing 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

Oh 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 never want
The only thing to live for is today

I'm gonna put a hole my TV set
I don't wanna grow up
Open up the medicine-chest
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
I don't wanna grow up

I'd rather stay here in my room
Nothing out there but sad and gloom
I don't wanna live in a big old tomb on Grand Street
Uh!



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 a big old loan
Work them fingers to the bone
I don't wanna float on a broom
Fall in love get married then boom!
How the hell did it get here so soon?
I don't wanna grow up!
