I Don't Wanna Grow Up

Tom Waits

Track #14 from the album Bone Machine


 Main Author's Notes

Still on “Bone Machine”, “I Don’t Wanna Grow Up” is a restless stomping tune who’s title describes it precisely. Famously covered by the Ramones, this is a tireless song where Waits sings of his fear of growing up - sung from the point of view of a child who views the adult world for all it’s simple reality - the suffering, greed, disappointment, addictions - and simply wishes to never become that. It’s beautiful, horrifying and at the same time just fun and silly.
