(One, two, three, four)

Well, I guess I should confess that I am starting to get old
All the latest music fads all passed me by and left me cold
All the kids are talking slang I won't pretend to understand
All my friends are getting married, mortgages and pension plans

And it's obvious my angry adolescent days are done
And I'm happy and I'm settled in the person I've become
But that doesn't mean I'm settled up and sitting out the game
Time may change a lot but some things may stay the same

And I won't sit down and I won't shut up
Most of all I will not grow up
And I won't sit down and I won't shut up
Most of all, yeah, I won't grow up

Oh, maturity's a wrapped up package deal, so it seems
And ditching teenage fantasy means ditching all your dreams
All your friends and peers, and family solemnly tell you you will
Have to grow up, be an adult, yeah, be bored and unfulfilled

Oh, when no one's yet explained to me exactly what's so great
About slaving fifty years away on something that you hate
Look, I'm meekly shuffling down the path of mediocrity
Well, if that's your road then take it but it's not the road for me

And I won't sit down and I won't shut up
Most of all I will not grow up
And I won't sit down and I won't shut up
Most of all, yeah, I won't grow up

And if all you ever do with your life
Is just photosynthesize
Then you deserve every hour of these sleepless nights
That you waste wondering when you're gonna die

Now I'll play and you sing
The perfect way for the evening to begin
Now I'll play and you sing
The perfect way for the evening to begin

And I won't sit down and I won't shut up
Most of all, yeah, I won't grow up
And I won't sit down and I won't shut up
Most of all I will not grow up
And I won't sit down and I won't shut up
Most of all I will not grow up
