1. I'm eleven years old, and they're telling me, Honey .. on getting into Harvard, your whole life depends. Cuz a prestigious school means a job with big money, so you can live in the Burbs and drive a Mercedes Benz. Ay yai yai yai .. Ay yai yai yai.

I'm eleven years old, I used to love eating Reeses .. and Big Macs, but now mom's got me on a diet. In my sex education class .. the birds and the beeses, they tell how and why, but you're too young to try! Ay yai yai yai .. Ay yai yai yai.

Boy, it's wierd .. but I looked in the mirror this morning, and well, sir .. I swear it's true! Look! I'm growing a beard! Ay yai yai yai .. Ay yai yai yai.

Now I can't wait to grow up, and get into therapy, maybe then I'll learn how to just be a kid. Ay yai yai yai .. Ay yai yai yai. I can't wait to grow up, and get into therapy, maybe then I'll learn how to just be a kid. Just be a kid, just be a kid, to just be a kid!
