Today I begin a week-long break ...my first since the pandemic began

I work in an essential* industry. I'm sixty years old. I have over a thousand people in my face every day and they're getting crankier and crankier as things go from bad to worse. I had to eject five people from my store on Saturday night alone...three physical assaults by drunks refusing to wear masks this week. At least I've got a job, unlike many. I'm really, really tired and need a recharge my friends. For now, this is how I feel so I'll vent...

When I'm lyin' in my bed at night

I don't wanna grow up

Nothin' ever seems to turn out right

I don't wanna grow up

How do you move in a world of fog

That's always changing things

Makes me wish that I could be a dog

When I see the price that you pay

I don't wanna grow up

I don't ever wanna be that way

I don't wanna grow up



Seems like folks turn into things

That they'd never want

The only thing to live for

Is today

I'm gonna put a hole in my TV set

I don't wanna grow up

Open up the medicine chest

And I don't wanna grow up

I don't wnna have to shout it out

I don't want my hair to fall out

I don't wanna be filled with doubt

I don't wanna be a good boy scout

I don't wanna have to learn to count

I don't wanna have the biggest amount

I don't wanna grow up



Well when I see my parents fight

I don't wanna grow up

They all go out and drinking all night

And I don't wanna grow up

I'd rather stay here in my room

Nothin' out there but sad and gloom

I don't wanna live in a big old Tomb

On Grand Street



When I see the 5 o'clock news

I don't wanna grow up

Comb their hair and shine their shoes

I don't wanna grow up

Stay around in my old hometown

I don't wanna put no money down

I don't wanna get me a big old loan

Work them fingers to the bone

I don't wanna float a broom

Fall in and get married then boom

How the hell did I get here so soon

I don't wanna grow up
