Well, when I'm lyin' in my bed at night I don't want to grow up Nothin' ever seems to turn out right I don't want to 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 Well, when I see the price that you pay I don't want to grow up I don't ever want to be that way I don't want to grow up
Seems like folks turn into things they they'd never want The only thing to live for is today
I'm gonna put a hole in my T.V. set I don't want to grow up Open up the medicine chest And I don't want to grow up I don't want to have to shout it out I don't want my hair to fall out I don't want to be filled with doubt I don't want to be a good boy scout I don't want to have to learn to count I don't want to have the biggest amount I don't want to grow up
Well, when I see my parents fight I don't want to grow up They all go out and drinking all night And I don't want to grow up I'd rather say here in my room Nothin' out there but sad and gloom I don't want to live in a big old tomb on Grand Street, hoo
When I see the five o'clock news I don't want to grow up Comb their hair and shine their shoes I don't want to grow up Stay around in my old hometown I don't want to put no money down I don't want to get me a big old loan Work them fingers to the bone I don't want to float a broom Fall in love and get married then boom How the hell did I get here so soon? I don't want to grow up

Oldpink from Farmland, InThe video for this song is really strange, with a guy wearing a bad devil outfit riding a tricycle, and Waits "playing" a ukulele the size of a TV remote under a table. Beavis & Butt-Head's comments while watching the video were really funny, though.
Boston leader Tom Scholz went back to his job at Polaroid after releasing the group's debut album. When his co-workers kept coming by to tell him "More Than A Feeling" was playing on the radio, he knew it was time to quit his day job.
