I still like gummy bears and worms

I still don’t like to touch the germs

Still don’t ride my bike over the sewer grill

Try to get things on my terms

Had my share of bangs and perms

Still look for a thing in life to spark a thrill

I still feel sweet deet de de deet

Still feel like seventeen

I try to run and I’m learning to sing

I contemplate why girls are so mean

Still call mom about everything

I still get so emotional

Stuff myself till I’m too full

Still like sitting way up front to raise my hand

Still have so much left to learn

Made mistakes I’d like to burn

It’s all better at the game and hot dog stand

I’m staying this way forever

I don’t want to change

I act young and I like it

I know it’s strange
