    "When I 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 Stay around in my old hometown 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 I don't wanna grow up" So true Tom... Growing up now means forgetting everything about your human values and following the path this system wnats you to follow,,, I want no part of this. I will never grow up. And we are millions of our kind. Let's keep expressing ourselves.

    It may be blasphemous, but I prefer the Ramones version...

    Being an adult is pretty awful, though being a young adult is harder.. I can't even get a loan. :( I want to be friends with Tom Waits

    How do you move in a world of fog/That's always changing things/Makes me wish that I could be a dog/When I see the price that you pay... What he saId

    My sentiments exactly, Mr. Waits. Adulthood is highly overrated.

    "Seems like folks turn into things they never want..." Preach it!
