lyrics

at work customers tell me i look sixteen
i tell them i'm twenty-two, they say, "really?!"
one woman tells me i'm too skinny like a girl
one man tells me to eat some meat
i pretend his isn't what he means

i look too young yet already feel too old to do a lot of things
like wear a pumpkin pin to work or paint my nails green
and maybe it's true i'm too old but i won't let it stop me
i'll let myself be too young to dye my hair blue
i'll save it for when i turn seventy-two

yeah my hair will be royal blue
when i'm seventy-two

it's true that i'm too old to be
a punk rock prodigy
but hey that's kind of ok with me
cause it means i'm still alive and breathing
yet i feel too young to be
certain things like a college graduate and far from my family

ba ba ba ba

too old to sit outside all day like
i did when i was thirteen, feel like i need to be doing something
too young to sleep in with you
like we're married, fuck it, that's not true
i just like to wake up early

let's get married, just kidding
plus i'd loose the ring
i'm too young to keep anything
i loose a lot of things
like contact with old friends,
like my house key, the door's always open
please don't steal from me

please. don't. steal. my. mochi.

it's true that i'm too old to be
a punk rock prodigy
but hey that's kind of ok with me
cause it means i'm still alive and breathing
yet i feel too young to be
certain things like a college graduate and far from my family
