Listen

 

She wears a lot of beige
She really acts her age
She’s got a 401K
and a couple of babies

She calls me on the phone
but it ain’t the same
All my crazy friends got old and lame

He used to have green hair
He used to drink and swear
We used to drive all night
and never go nowhere

Now at ten p.m. he says, “Oh man,
it’s sure getting late.”
All my crazy friends got old and lame

I ain’t clinging to no big dreams
I’m just living life the way I said I would
I ain’t pretending that I’m sixteen
‘Cause I wouldn’t do it over if I could

She used to have her fun
I mean with everyone
A different drug each day, a different man each night
Hey girl, I don’t judge

Then she found the lord
and now there’s all kinds of shit we can’t say
All my crazy friends got old and lame

He used to smash the state
or talk about it anyway
He’d sit around and he’d lecture me
about the corporate bourgeoisie

Now he’s CEO
but he ain’t to blame
All my crazy friends got old and lame

I’ve got nothing against your wife and family
I’ve done my share of settling down
I’ve got nothing agains the way you choose to be
But just because you gave up, don’t mean the game is done

I don’t mean to judge
I don’t hold no grudge
But I’m sick of everybody asking me
when am I gonna grow up?

I’m just doing what I do
and I can’t explain
why all my crazy friends got old and lame

All my crazy friends got old and lame
All my crazy friends got old and lame
