Original video
You're sixteen going on thirty-two
Confusion of age surrounding you
Cigarette dangles from your painted lips
You wear the shoe because it fits

Put on your sneakers and be a kid
Why don't you try and have some fun
Put on your sneakers and be a kid
You're not fooling anyone

Why you wanna grow so old, so fast
Let your teenage ignorance last
Put away all those rings and chains
Come back and enjoy the growing pains

Put on your sneakers and be a kid
Why don't you try and have some fun
Put on your sneakers and be a kid
You're not fooling anyone, no

When I saw you the other day
You saw me but turned away
Why didn't you try to acknowledge me
Was it cause your date was thirty-three

Put on your sneakers and be a kid
Why don't you try and have some fun
Put on your sneakers and be a kid
You're not fooling anyone, no
