Act Your Age


Note: This is a song!





You're acting like a child
It's silly, it's not wild
You've asked girls out before
Oh, please. do not ignore
You need to be mature
Don't play pranks anymore

Everyone is tired
Idjit warranty has expired
It's time to grow up
And, no, it's not a bluff
How I wish you'd just...

If you act your age
That would set the stage
For your first date
Wouldn't that be great
If you just act your age
Get your mind out of the stage
Try not to be dumb today
Oh, wouldn't that be great?

If you just act your age
Your age, your age
If you just act your age
Your age, your age
Act your age

Running around and
Trying to be tough
If you're trying to impress
It's not enough
Girls do not like
The childish games
So won't you please
Act you age?

Everyone is tired
Idjit warranty has expired
It's time to grow up
And, no, it's not a bluff
How I wish you'd just...

If you act your age
That would set the stage
For your first date
Wouldn't that be great
If you just act your age
Get your mind out of the stage
Try not to be dumb today
Oh, wouldn't that be great?

If you just act your age
Your age, your age
If you just act your age
Your age, your age
Act your age

Until you grow up and
Stop acting like a fool
Those girls'll stay away
Because you're not cool
They might get taken
Before you get there
It's just advice

Everyone is tired
Idjit warranty has expired
It's time to grow up
And, no, it's not a bluff
How I wish you'd just...

If you act your age
That would set the stage
For your first date
Wouldn't that be great
If you just act your age
Get your mind out of the stage
Try not to be dumb today
Oh, wouldn't that be great?

If you just act your age
Your age, your age
If you just act your age
Your age, your age
Act your age
Just act your age

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
