"Don’t Grow Up"


Don't grow up little man (don't grow up)
They'll take your money and make your work by your back
The women'll break your heart
But don't worry you'll break theirs too (yes you'll break theirs too)
The only problem is that two wrongs don't make a right
But for politicians, this isn't true
They'll sign their laws and send you to war
Please don't grow up, I don't want to see you poor
Stay little, ask me all your questions and smile
They say ignorance is bliss but so is denial
So I'll turn off that tube for the 10 o'clock news
Cause I want cookie monster to be the only time you sing the blues

I said don't grow up stay small, play basketball
Smile, breath, live, that's all
I said don't grow up stay small, play basketball
Smile, breath, live, that's all

(Plug your ears)
This second verse isn't for your ears
This second verse is to calm my fears
Is it right to put a kid on the planet
Or should I listen to Vonnegut and say god damn it
I hear rumors, see tumors, hear lies, hear facts
I see the construction for their concentration camps
Is it true, should we fight it, or is it false?
Are they gonna watch the world fall as they play golf
I'm off, to a new existence
Cause there's gotta be another planet out there that's different
Unplug your ears nephews this one is for you
Turn off that TV those lies will spoil you
You gotta love unconditionally
You gotta forgive eventually
Never go to war negativity is scary
The love that you withhold is the pain that you carry

I said don't grow up stay small, play basketball
Smile, breath, live, that's all
I said don't grow up stay small, play basketball
Smile, breath, live, that's all

Play piano, draw or just play sports
Do what makes you happy, do what doesn't make you bored
Play outside or play those video games
Play whatever you want, just use your brain and stay sane
When you get older, people'll play with your head
And those same people will play with the words that you said
Life's a game, people like to play, but don't ever play dead
Stand up and be a man but don't be afraid to cry
Stand behind your words and don't give up after the first try
Family is your anchor, friends are other boats
You'll find pirates along the way, with wolves under their wool coats
Find what makes you happy, mix it with a little bit of logic and love
This world's full of drugs, sweat and fear
So give your teddy bear a hug
And if you ever feel lost, throw on our headphones and listen to this
I'm not saying I'm found, I just want to say I love you, signed your uncle Chris

I said don't grow up stay small, play basketball
Smile, breath, live, that's all
I said don't grow up stay small, play basketball
Smile, breath, live, that's all
