lyrics

It’s time I yield to truth
I can’t go of my youth
Fall from trees and skin my knees
Mow the grass for a tub of ice cream
Don’t tell me to act my age
Thunderbirds are all the rage
I’d stay like this if I could
The biggest kid of the neighbourhood

It’s time I resign to fate
I can’t shake these schoolboy traits
Work’s like school it’s such a bore
Daydream till the clock strikes four
Scheming how to shock and appal
Draw a cock and balls on a subway wall
I’d stay like this if I could
The biggest kid of the neighbourhood

If you can’t find me, the place I’ll be
Eating my way through the pantry
I don’t do brunch it’s far too late
I can’t wait I wanna go and play
If I don’t get fed I get cranky
But bread and jam will pacify me
I’d stay like this if I could
The biggest kid of the neighbourhood

I won’t admit I’m growing old
I know best I won’t be told
My knees they ache, a bit inflamed
I swear it’s just growing pains
I don’t need glasses I can see
The world in focus ain’t for me
I’d stay like this if I could
The biggest kid of the neighbourhood


It’s time I yield to truth
I can’t go of my youth
Fall from trees and skin my knees
Mow the grass for a tub of ice cream
Don’t tell me to act my age
Thunderbirds are all the rage
I’d stay like this if I could
The biggest kid of the neighbourhood


It’s time I yield to truth
I can’t go of my youth
Fall from trees and skin my knees
Mow the grass for a tub of ice cream
Don’t tell me to act my age
Thunderbirds are all the rage
I’d stay like this if I could
The biggest kid of the neighbourhood
