In fact it’s really more about a certain mental stage.
When I was a kid I couldn’t wait to grow into
A person more mature than all the other kids I knew.
I wanted all the good things and the fun that adults had
I hoped to get some benefits, same as my mom and dad
But then I started pondering and agonized my fate,
I figured out that adulthood really isn’t all that great.
You can stay up late and watch T.V. or on the town you lurk,
No matter when you go to bed you still must go to work.
You might receive the nicest gift at Christmas time this year,
But Christmas shopping cost you lots and winter’s almost here.
You buy your shoes on sale or not, it really doesn’t matter
But when the Visa bill comes in there’s always lots of chatter.
Cooking is your specialty but kids must do the dishes,
You have to feed your family plus dogs and cat and fishes.
When we all go on a trip, adults get the front seat.
But navigating highways is really quite a feat.
You dial the tuner in and then you listen to your station,
I hope my friends don’t hear it that would cause humiliation.
Dad says when Mom’s cranky that she’s going through the change,
I’m not quite sure just what that means, she’s acting really strange.
So you see that being an adult is not that great,
I guess I’ll just be patient and enjoy life while I wait.
