My name is hiro, I am 51
Since 1980 life has been no fun,
And I don't want to die- I left my family for the secretary

Ah ah, ah ah, ah ah, ah ah

Her name is yuko she is 22
She and my daughter were best friends in high school
They same I'm crazy and it's temporary
But I refuse to rot like my contemporaries
I want to explode- in a kareoke supernova

(chorus:)
I don't wanna grow old
Won't you let me, won't you let me explode
I don't wanna grow old
Won't you let me, won't you let me explode, uh oh
In a kareoke supernova, yeah

Ah ah, ah ah, ah ah, ah ah

Last night she dressed me up in hip hop pants
The fat cheek style that rides below your ass
She wants to show me to her mom and dad
I told her I would not be down with that
''cause lately I can feel the years between us
And hope to God the friends at work don't see us.
Tonight she if I'd ever seen jesus
''cause she had backstage passes for the three of us

(chorus)

So now she's gone and broke my heart, God damn her
Turns out she's been fucking a drum programmer
She likes his style, she likes his rock star glamour
Well she's an infant, he can damn-well have her.

I don't wanna grow old
Won't you let me, won't you let me explode
I don't wanna grow old
Won't you let me, won't you let me explode
I don't wanna grow old (wanna grow old)
Won't you let me, won't you let me explode
I don't wanna grow old (wanna grow old)
Won't you let me, won't you let me explode, uh oh
In a kareoke supernova

All right, all right bring the saxes in
That's good, keep it up
Ok, some more overdubs
Bring in the tambourine
Yeah, check it
More shit, c'mon bring in some more shit
Baby, c'mon
All right
Its' all, its' all, its' all, its' all, its' all, its' all me
Baby, c'mon
Yeah
