I see you singing like a camera 
I see you staring from your mouth 
I see you spittin' out your algebra 
You think you've got it figured out 
 
I saw you on American Bandstand 
I saw you on the Mickey Mouse Club 
I see your wife has a trash compactor 
I see you holdin' two ticket stubs 
 
I see you pushin' out your politics 
I see you rifling the machine 
I see you dressin' up your party chicks 
Lipstick like convertible scenes 
 
I didn't think that you were so much better 
You just predicted all the fate in the world 
But now you're sitting home knitting sweaters 
Tellin' stories to a three year old 
 
Ya used ta kiss the girls and make 'em cry 
Ya used ta be too young to die 
Ya used ta kiss the girls and make 'em cry 
Ya used ta kiss the girls, ya used to kiss the girls 
 
Now you've got one wife, two kids, three cars, 
Four eyes, five suits, six mortage, seven midnight deals 
Lotsa time lotsa cash, feed your son take out the trash 
Do what you're told, you're gettin' old, we did not think you'd last 
 
She only told you that the party was over 
She didn't tell you that the bedroom was locked 
And when she took your key and started up your motor 
You should have taken that spin around the block 
 
Ya used ta kiss the girls and make 'em cry 
Ya used ta be too young to die 
Ya used ta kiss the girls and make 'em cry 
Ya used ta be too young to die
