Why Grow Up

Written by: Jack Ellison

This question is often asked of me “When are you going to grow up?” My answer to that is “why grow up” “I'd much rather stay a young pup” Growing up sure ain't no damn fun To a world of conflict and strife Prefer to stay young and innocent like While leading a carefree life My single voice is of no consequence In the overall scheme of things Why should I rattle my li'l old brain In my world, it's eternal spring Things will go on long after I'm gone At my age my engine's on cruise One thing I've realized in all my years I've surely got nothing to lose © Jack Ellison 2013
