But Then You Grow Up

Hey kids won't you gather round
I'm going to sit you down and tell you
'Bout a couple things that I think you should know

You want to be the president
Or you will be an astronaut, I bet
You wanna be a big big big star

Cause when you're young the future looks so bright
You can do anything you like to do
The sky's the limit and time is on your side

But then you grow up
And you live in a van
Guess you should have stayed in school back then

So kids you just never know
There's so many different ways that things can go
And you don't really have much control

You can be successful and rich
Or you can end up face down in a ditch
And that's just how the story goes

Cause life is what happens to you
While you're busy making other plans
And life doesn't care what you have planned

But then you grow up
And you live in a van
Guess you should have stayed in school back then

We're all just wasting life
That much I know
We're all just ticking time away

We're all just chasing lies
That much is true
Until we all just fade away
