---------------------------

INTRO: 

D, Dsus2, D, Dsus2    x4

(One, Two, One, Two, three, Four)

---------------------------


VERSE 1:

       G
Well I guess I should confess that I am starting to get old. 

        D
All the latest music fads all passed me by and left me cold. 

        A                                 G
All the kids are talking slang I wonít pretend to understand. 

       D                                  A               D
All my friends are getting married. Mortgages and pension plans.
 
         G
And itís obvious my angry adolescent days are done. 

        D
And Iím happy and Iím settled in the person Iíve become. 

         A                               G
But that doesnít mean Iím settled up and sitting out the game- 

A                               D                    (let chord ring)
Time may change a lot. But some things they stay the same.

---------------------------


CHORUS:

**(You could either sit this out as in the studio version the guitar 

stops playing, or you could play either the chords shown here or the 

bass line which is how i play it.)**


      Em   G    A    D
G|----------------------------|
D|----------------------------|
A|--------------0----5--------|
E|----0----3------------------|



                  E
  And I won't sit down

G       A      D
  And I won't shut up

              E          G   A    D
  And most of all i will not grow up.      x2


---------------------------

BUILD UP INTO VERSE 2:

 D, Dsus2, D, Dsus2


---------------------------


VERSE 2:

      G
Oh, Maturityís a wrapped-up package deal or so it seems. 

D
Ditching teenage fantasy means ditching all your dreams. 

         A                               G
All your friends and peers and family solemnly tell you you will 

        D              A               D
have to grow up, be an adult. Yeah, be bored and unfulfilled. 

    G
But no oneís yet explained to me exactly whatís so great 

      D
about slaving 50 years away on something that you hate. 

      A                                 G
About meekly shuffling down the path of mediocrity. 

        A                                      D     (Let chord ring)
Well if thatís your road then take it but itís not the road for me.


---------------------------


CHORUS:

**(see notes above)

                  E
  And I won't sit down

G       A      D
  And I won't shut up

              E          G   A    D
  And most of all i will not grow up.      x2



---------------------------

BRIDGE:


       Bm                                     A          G
And if all you ever do with your life is Just photosynthesise, 

              G/Gb
then youíll deserve every hour of your sleepless nights 

         E               A                 D
that you waste wondering when youíre gonna die.


---------------------------

 G,

 D,

  And I'll Play

G     A       D
  And You Sing

              E           G       A    D
  The perfect way for the evening to begin.  (x2)

  And most of all i will not grow up. 


                  E
  And I won't sit down

G       A      D
  And I won't shut up

  And most of all i will not... grow... up...
