Grown Up
She's engaged to an industry man,
Got an old rent-controlled and a brand new sedan.
I'm on hold with Con Edison,
The space heater went dead again.

She played the cop, I played the martyr.
She got the rock, I rocked the party.
She got the credit and I got carded.

I have hardly grown up since you met me,
I might never grow up if you let me,
And if I had to do it all over, well I'd do it again
I'd come running right back to all the trouble I'm in
Because, I have hardly grown up since you met me

I never learn but I like to pretend,
And I've got lots of company in my circle of friends.

She got the goods, I got the glory
She's never wrong, and I'm never sorry

I have hardly grown up since you met me,
I might never grow up if you let me,
And if I had to do it all over, well I'd do it again
I'd come running right back to all the trouble I'm in
Because, I have hardly grown up since you met me

You've got that look in your eyes and your clicking your teeth.
You've got the answer on the tip of your tongue.
You've got an itchy trigger finger and you're pointing at me,
With the barrel of a loaded gun.

She's gone away and she'll never return,
Cause I never met a bridge that I couldn't burn

I have hardly grown up since you met me,
I might never grow up if you let me,
And if I had to do it all over, well I'd do it again
I'd come running right back to all the t
