I Don't Wanna Grow Up

Filing taxes,
Driving all around,
Running errands,
Soon your head is less sound.

Paying bills,
I'm not near the end,
Writing your will,
I'm just now about to actually begin!

But I can't really
Continue on,
Because if I did,
The list would be way too long!

I don't wanna grow up.
And would I? Why?
Grown ups have no fun,
So the question is: why must I?

Some kids can't wait 'til adulthood;
They act older than they are.
It's something I've never understood.
They say they want a car.

But even a car isn't free,
There's quite a hefty price to pay,
So that's the reason I can't see
Why they can't stand a delay.

I don't wanna grow up.
I'd just as soon stay young.
And while adults may be more respected than kids,
They've always got to hold their tongues.

While kids can get all wild,
And not be thought as psycho,
Adults, they can't get out of line,
Or else they're considered a weirdo.

And adults are always losing weight,
Or trying to, at the gym.
Kids, most have great metabolisms,
For them the situation's win-win.

I don't wanna grow up,
And I hope you can see why.
But one of the most important things:
Grown ups aren't allowed to cry.
