Driver's Ed and Ringpops

V1

Mama says, "Honey, you need to grow up,"

So then you try,

And when you do,

Mama says, "Baby Girl, what happened to you?"

You see, I'm just a kid at heart,

In the skin of a teenager who suffers for her art,

Could never stand feeling inferior,

But as always, I'm defied by my interior,

'Cuz you see, I'm not quite as grown-up,

As I look or wanna be,

But I'll be me.

So, you treat me like a kid and die,

That's how I feel inside,

Even though I've got a long way to go,

I'm off to suck on grape Popsicles,

I just though I'd let you know…

CHORUS

Oh, oh, I can't grow up,

I won't grow up,

I'm disinclined to acquiesce to that request,

You can't make me grow up,

I can try,

But no matter how hard I try,

I can never grow up all the way,

The kid in me is always here to stay,

I could never go back,

They'd push me away,

I'm in the middle,

And I'm stuck,

Mommy, mommy, save me,

So mama, now what?

V2

So it seems,

I'll always be in between,

And someday, I'll be,

Cruising in my convertible,

Rolling down the top,

And sucking on a ring pop.

And at all night party,

I'll be drinking Bacardi,

Cursing like a sailor,

In my Hello Kitty tank top.

So why won't they believe me,

When I say,

I can't grow up all the way,

And I'll do it when I can,

But now I can't,

So I'm gonna fill out my college aps. in red crayon

And ride my pink pony to work every day,

All according to plan,

All according to plan…

CHORUS

Oh, oh, I can't grow up,

I won't grow up,

I'm disinclined to acquiesce to that request,

You can't make me grow up,

I can try,

But no matter how hard I try,

I can never grow up all the way,

The kid in me is always here to stay,

I could never go back,

They'd push me away,

I'm in the middle,

And I'm stuck,

Mommy, mommy, save me,

So mama, now what?

V3

So I'm outta place,

As usual,

But is being half-and-half,

So unusual?

Why is it now, when I running through the sprinklers,

I'm just delusional,

Identity crisis,

Growing pains,

They call it,

Just to stall it,

And make more confusing stuff,

In the already-impossible teenage lives of all of us,

I don't know about you,

But I still like my Jell-O,

In green and yellow,

And I won't give it,

I won't give it,

I won't give it up!

CHORUS (O8)

Oh, oh, I can't grow up,

I won't grow up,

I'm disinclined to acquiesce to that request,

You can't make me grow up,

I can try,

But no matter how hard I try,

I can never grow up all the way,

The kid in me is always here to stay,

I could never go back,

They'd push me away,

I'm in the middle,

And I'm stuck,

Mommy, mommy, save me,

So mama, now what?

FIN

I am in-between,

I'll always be me,

You can make me change,

And I won't choose,

Between…

Hello Kitty in the big city,

Running through the sprinkler in my black bikini,

Jumping on the trampoline in-between partying,

Cherishing life like apple juice,

And the little kid's wisdom on a summer day,

To stay that way,

No one ever said you had to pick and choose,

So never loose,

So never loose,

The wisdom of the little child,

Although grown up and wild,

And Driver's Ed and ring pops,

Driver's Ed and ring pops,

Driver's Ed and ring pops…
