Must admit I've seen better days for sure
Seems I got a disease
For which there is no cure
Can't afford to go out on the town
Or even pay my rent
All because of my arrested development

Sooner or later
Gotta grow up or fall apart
Sooner or later
But now's a good time to start

It used to be cool to act like a child
Scream and yell and get down
And get totally wild
But when you push 30 well it's not so keen
Whaddya do once your angry young man
Vents his spleen

Tough to keep up
Tough to keep pace
Tough to stay in the human rat race
Tough to bend
And tough to grow
Tough to always be in the know

Life is hard
Life is mean
You're either out or you're in-between
Life is cruel
Life is cold
It's no fun growing old

You used to look good
But now well not so much
You used to be hip
But now you have lost touch
Used to be plugged in
To any sudden trend
Now you've no idea what's coming
Around the bend
