Bijna volwassen

Geen speciale reden anders dan dat ik er zin in had:

(Wow wow) You know I’m almost grown (Wow wow)

Yeah ‘n’ I’m doin’ all right in school
They ain’t said I broke no rule
I ain’t never been in Dutch
I don’t browse around too much

Don’t bother me, leave me alone
Anyway I’m almost grown

I don’t run around with no mob
Got myself a little job
I’m gonna buy me a little car
Drive my girl in the park

Don’t bother just leave us alone
Anyway we’re almost grown

Got my eye on a little girl
Ah, she’s really out of this world
When I take her to the dance,
She’s got to talk about romance

Don’t bother just leave us alone
Anyway we’re almost grown

You know I’m still livin’ in town
But I done married and settled down
Now I really have a ball
So I don’t browse around at all

Don’t bother just leave us alone
Anyway we’re almost grown
