  • Song Lyrics:
    This is a special moment right now
    We'd like to take this time to tell all
    the kids at home, send your parents
    out of the room; this is a kids song...

    Life's gonna suck when you grow up,
    when you grow up,
    when you grow up
    Life's gonna suck when you grow up
    It sucks pretty bad right now

    Hey! If you know the words, sing along!

    You're gonna have to mow the lawn,
    do the dishes, make your bed
    You're gonna have to go to school
    until you're seventeen

    It's gonna seem about three times as long as that

    You might have to go to war,
    shoot a gun, kill a nun
    You might have to go to war
    when you get out of school

    Hey, cheer up kids, it gets a lot worse

    You're gonna have to deal with stress,
    deal with stress, deal with stress
    You're gonna be a giant mess
    when you get back from the war

    Santa Claus does not exist
    and there's no Easter Bunny
    You'll find out when you grow up
    that Big Bird isn't funny, funny, funny!

    Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

    Life's gonna suck when you grow up,
    when you grow up,
    when you grow up
    Life's gonna suck when you grow up
    It sucks pretty bad right now

    You're gonna end up smoking crack,
    on your back, face the fact
    You're gonna end up hooked on smack
    and then you're gonna die

    And then you're gonna diiiiiiiiiiie! Hey, Hey!

    A little something for the kids.

    Well, I think I smell a lawsuit in that one
    What do you think?
