We wanna be like Peter Pan,
We don't wanna grow up !
Wanna stay kids as long as we can,
that's our plan ! Pretty neat plan !
Then when it's time to be a man,
we're not gonna grow up !
Gonna stay kids like we began,
Just like Peter Pan !
Bein' a man means you gotta show up
for work each day in a shirt and a tie ! Yuck !
Bein'a man means you gotta call up
your friends and say, "Can't stay ! Gotta fly !" Yuck !
We got an even neater plan,
sit down and listen up.
We all oughta be like Peter Pan,
we don't wanna grow up !
We never, never, never, never,
never, never, never, never,
ever wanna grow up ! Yuck !
