Lyrics

We Don't Wanna Grow Up

We wanna be like Peter Pan,
We don't wanna grow up!
Wanna stay kids as long as we can,
that's our plan! Pretty neat plan!
Then when it's time to be a man,
we're not gonna grow up!
Gonna stay kids like we began,
Just like Peter Pan!

Being a man means you gotta show up
for work each day in a shirt and a tie! Yuck!
Being a man means you gotta call up
your friends and say, "Can't stay! Gotta fly!" Yuck!

We got an even neater plan,
sit down and listen up.
We all oughta be like Peter Pan,
we don't wanna grow up!

We never, never, never, never,
never, never, never, never,
ever wanna grop up! Yuck!
