I don't wanna grow up.

Ho confesso, Bone Machine és per mi un disc "perdut" de Tom Waits. No el tinc i no l'he sentit mai... però fa uns dies, perdent el temps al YouTube, vaig trobar aquesta mervella que posteriorment ha estat versionada pels Ramones. I que fa una setmana que sona una i altra vegada als meus auriculars, i que fa ressonar alguna cosa a la meva ànima.

Disfruteu-la.





I DON'T WANNA GROW UP

When I'm lyin' in my bed at night

I don't wanna grow up

Nothin' ever seems to turn out right

I don't wanna grow up

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

I don't wanna grow up

I don't ever wanna 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
I don't wnna have to shout it out
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
I don't wanna grow up

Well when I see my parents fight
I don't wanna grow up
They all go out and drinking all night
And I don't wanna grow up
I'd rather stay here in my room
Nothin' out there but sad and gloom

I don't wanna live in a big old Tomb

On Grand Street


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 and get married then boom

How the hell did I get here so soon

I don't wanna grow up
