I Won't Grow Up

This song is by Rickie Lee Jones and appears on the album Pop Pop (1991).

I Won't Grow Up


I won't grow up
I don't wanna go to school
Just to learn to be a puppet
And recite a silly rule

If growing up means it would be
Beneath my dignity to climb a tree
I won't grow up, won't grow up, won't grow up
Not me.

I won't grow up
I don't wanna wear a tie
Or a serious expression
In the middle of July

And if it means that I must prepare
To shoulder burdens with a worried air
I'll never grow up, won't grow up, never grow up
So there

Never gonna be a man
I won't!
Like to see somebody try
And make me!
Anyone who wants to try
And make me turn into a man
Catch me if you can

I won't grow up
I don't wanna wear a tie
Or a serious expression
In the middle of July

Growing up's awfuller than
All the awful things that never been
I won't grow up, won't grow up, won't grow up
Again

Growing up's awfuller than
All the awful things that never been
I won't grow up, never grow up, never grow up
Again
Not me
Not I
