Another day late for the bus again
A single mom just trying to make ends meet
Go to work, be on time, get out of the grocery line
Before the kids get home
Everybody's in a hurry
Totally stressed out and worried
If only she could turn back time to when
She remembers
Being 13
Sleeping in till 11:30
Dressing up in her mamma's jewellery
But she had to grow up, yeah we gotta grow up
Summer seemed to last forever
Parents always stayed together
Nothing matters, yeah whatever
But she had to grow up, yeah we gotta grow up
Sometime
A grey haired man in a pinstripe suit
His last report long overdue
He pulled up to his parking spot, found
Someone took his job
Now what's he gonna' do?
Everybody's in a hurry
Totally stressed out and worried
If only he could turn back time to when
He remembers being 16
Quarterback of the old football team
Almost married the high school prom queen
But he had to grow up, yeah we gotta grow up
Learned to drive on all the side streets
Bent the rules like they meant nothing
Stayed out late till the early morning
But he had to grow up, yeah we gotta grow up
Sometime x4
Maybe I am only 14
Maybe someday I'll be prom queen
Drive myself to where I should be
But that's when I grow up, yeah that's when I grow up
But for now I'll drive my mamma crazy
Spin around till I get dizzy
Sleeping in till 11:30
But I'll have to grow up, yeah I gotta grow up sometime
