The Shirelles – Twenty-One lyrics
Can't stay out late, can't have no fun, twenty one (twenty one, la la la la oh)
Folks say you have to be twenty one, twenty one (twenty one, la la la la oh)
I'll have a dance, you just wait and see
Oh I'll be twenty one and fancy free
Wo wo wo wo wo wo hey, twenty one, twenty one

Can't go steady, can't even have a date, twenty one (twenty one, la la la la oh)
How in the world will I ever find a mate? twenty one (twenty one, la la la la oh)
I'll have a dance, I'll be twenty one, yeah
They're out fun, here I am
Wo wo wo wo wo wo hey, twenty one, twenty one

When my twenty onest birthday finally comes, oh yeah
I'm gonna sound the bugles, beat the drums
I'm gonna stay out all night; I won't even go to bed
I'm gonna find me a paintbrush, hah, and paint the whole town red, yeah

I'll get married and raise a family, twenty one (twenty one, la la la la oh)
All my kids are gonna look like me, twenty one (twenty one, la la la la oh)
They'll grow up and get carefree
I'll tell them like they told me: uh uh!

No no no no no no hey, twenty one, twenty one
