The Lyrics Are Below

Growin' Up

==========

 

Well I stood stonelike at midnight

Suspended in my masquerade

I combed my hair till it was just right

And commanded the night brigade

I was open to pain and crossed by the rain

And I walked on a crooked crutch

I strolled all alone through a fallout zone

Came out with my soul untouched

 

I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd

But when they said `Sit down' I stood up

Ooh-ooh growin' up

 

The flag of piracy flew from my mast

My sails were set wing to wing

I had a jukebox graduate for first mate

She couldn't sail but she sure could sing

I pushed the B-52 and bombed `em with the blues

With my gear set stubborn on standing

I broke all the rules, strafed my old high school

Never once gave thought to landing, no

 

I hid in the clouded wrath of the crowd

But when they said `Come down' I threw up

Ooh-ooh growin' up

 

I took month-long vacations in the stratosphere

And you know it's really hard to hold your breath

And I swear I lost everything I ever loved or feared

I was the cosmic kid in full costume dress

Well my feet finally took root in the earth

But I got me a nice little place in the stars

And I swear I found the key to the universe

In the engine of an old parked car

 

I hid in the mother breast of the crowd

But when they said `Move down' I moved up

Ooh-ooh, doncha know that I'm growin' up

Ooh-ooh, I can't help it that I'm growin' up
