I Don't Wanna Grow Up  Tom Waits



[D] [A]When I'm ly[D]in' in my bed at night, I don't wanna grow up
[D] [A]Nothin' ever see[D]ms to turn out right, I don't wanna grow up
[Bm] [A] [G]How do you [A]move in a world of fog that's always changing things
[Bm]Makes me wish that I could be[A] a dog[G] [A]
(chord pattern repeats)
When I see the price that you pay I don't wanna grow up
I don't ever want to 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
[Bm]I don't wanna have to shout it [A]out (repeat Bm A for next section)
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
[G]I don't wa[A]nna grow up[D]
[D] [A]Well when I[D] see my parents fight I don't wanna grow up
They all go out and drinkin' all night and I don't wanna grow up
[Bm]I'd rather stay here in my ro[A]om
Nothin' out there but sad and gloom
[Bm]I don't wanna live in a big old [A]tomb on Grant Street[G] [A]
[D] [A]When I[D] 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
[Bm]Stay around in my old home[A]town
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 love and get married then boom
How the hell did it get here so soon
[G]I don't wa[A]nna grow up[D]
