/ Canít wait to grow up
Now my Mum and dad keep telling me that I'm,
"not experienced," cause "Iím only five."
But I think Iíve got some experience
by simply being alive.
Iím not allowed to this
and Iím not allowed to do that!
Cause they say I havenít got the experience
and I might cause myself a mishap.
Cause I want to do the things that adults do, like,
driving a car and,
watching mature rated films and,
smoking a cigar.
I want to be Ďjust like my dad.í
Heís the greatest person I know.
But they always tell me to wait,
until I grow.
Iím five now,
I hope they donít expect me to wait until Iím six!
