I took her out
It was a Friday night
I wore cologne to get the feeling right

We started making out
And she took off my pants
But then I turned on the TV

And that's about the time she walked away from me
Nobody likes you when you're 23
And I'm still more amused by TV shows
What the hell is ADD?
My friends say I should act my age
What's my age again? what's my age again?

Then later on
On the drive home
I called her mom from a pay phone

I said I was the cops
And your husbands in jail
The state looks down on sodomy

And that's about the time that b*tch hung up on me
Nobody likes you when you're 23
And I'm still more amused by prank phone calls
What the hell is call I.D.?
My friends say I should act my age
What's my age again? what's my age again?

And that's about the time she walked away from me
Nobody likes you when you're 23
And you still act like you're in freshman year
What the hell is wrong with me?
My friends say I should act my age
What's my age again? (what's my age again?)

That's about the time that she broke up with me
(Please stay with me)
No one should take themselves so seriously
(Please stay with me)
With many years ahead to fall in line
(Please stay with me)
Why would you wish that on me
(Please stay with me)
I never wanna act my age
What's my age again? what's my age again?

What's my age again?

    I know exactly what he means!! I'm looking for colleges now, but at the same time having nerf gun wars with my brother...lols. But everyone is grown up and so mature. I can be that way too, but I don't WANT to. I just want to go back to california and sit in my eucaliptus tree like when I was a kid. But nooo... I gotta get a job.

    This song portrays the fact that although time passes quickly, we aren't always ready to chase after it. Tom is singing about his inability to grow up, and how he wants to stay in the past(when it was fun). Even though the people around him won't let him.
