Age ain't nothin' but a number
When I see the young ones amongst us
I pray that they hunger for God while the sun's up
While still summer time before it's winter time
I pray that they would come up
Before they reach old age and they can take a fall
And their knees won't break and they see no gray
They teeth don't shake, before the wrinkled face, and they relocate yeah
Where're my daylight soldiers with a teenage frame
But a faith like grownups, play time's over
The weight on my shoulders
Comes from the young that say "I'll wait till I'm older"
But why wait till you're 35
You can be mature for your age in the Word of God
Faith can be certified
Laced in a shirt and tie
You can be 13 going on 30 Ah

Age ain't nothin' but a number
Can't judge a book by it's cover
I know what you see will make you wonder
I'm just acting older than my number
Age ain't nothin' but a number
Can't judge a book by it's cover
I know what you see will make you wonder
I'm just acting older than my number

They say the children are the future
That's far from the truth but that's what we tell our youth groups
And since that's what they've become used to
It's hard for them to offer themselves to be useful
No wonder they on YouTube all day and night
'Cause it's like they ain't useful till they put on a new suit
So we tell'em welcome to the new school
Yes we need the old school, look at what the Jews do
At age 5, little Jewish kids with an able mind, retain all five
Books of the Pentateuch, rain or shine
They are trained to abide at every age stage of their lives
So to say "I'm too young" is an age old lie
Cause the early bird catches the worm, it's your turn
So you ain't gotta live all earthly
When you can be 13 going on 30

Age ain't nothin' but a number
Can't judge a book by it's cover
I know what you see will make you wonder
I'm just acting older than my number
Age ain't nothin' but a number
Can't judge a book by it's cover
I know what you see will make you wonder
I'm just acting older than my number

They say a child shall lead them, but who gon train'em?
Who gonna lead'em? Who gon Feed'em? Who gonna teach'em?
Take'em out on the weekend, show'em how to stand like Daniel and his three friends
You know it's gotta be us talkin' 'bout you and I, all of the adults
Culturally aware with our thumbs on the pulse
You know it's up to us to show the young how to walk
Look at Lebron James, he was 19 when he got in the game
Pushin' rock in the lane, Dakota Fanning holdin' a fan club, 7 years old when they rolled in the cameras
Joseph, Daniel, what about Samuel?
Mary in the manger, all teenagers yeah
If they could serve God early, then you can be 13 going on 30

Age ain't nothin' but a number
Can't judge a book by it's cover
I know what you see will make you wonder
I'm just acting older than my number
Age ain't nothin' but a number
Can't judge a book by it's cover
I know what you see will make you wonder
I'm just acting older than my number
