Nikka Costa – Grown Up World lyrics

Oh it's hard bein' little in a grown up world

I bet shirley temple hated every curl

They think our life is easy

Like a song that's ligth and breezy

It's enough to make you queezy

When you know it's tough

Bein' little in this mixed up world

Life is a riddle that just spins and twirls

And we're intimidated

When we've merely imitated

Sophisticated people that we love

If only they'd realize that we're people too

We're people too

Have problems too

But they never look at things from our point of view

So what can a little kid do

I wish they'd see that i just might turn out ok

But look i'm not complainin'

That it's just kids' stuff

I'm only explainin'

That it's real tough

When you're caught in the middle

There is no aquittal

As long as you're little

In a grown up world
