Well I don't follow any trend
I don't sulk for hours on end
I don't wanna reach out 'n' punch someone
I am what I hated when I was young
I don't wear designer clothes
I ain't got pins in my nose
I ain't got a tattoo on my bum
I am what I hated when I was young

Poverty was a wonderful thing everyone enjoyed
We were eatin' grass not smokin' it
Wasn't like this when I was a boy
Wasn't like this when I was a boy

I don't rob old people's homes
I don't steal no cellular phones
I kinda like my Dad and Mom
I am what I hated when I was young
I don't holler, I don't hoot
I don't act like a nincompoop
I don't hide when the police come
I am what I hated when I was young

I'm slowin' down, I'm getting old
N' my back is getting bad
I just sit 'n' moan all day
Wasn't like this when I was a lad
Wasn't like this when I was a lad

Comb my hair, brush my teeth
Wash my feet more than once a week
N' I never leave my flies undone
I am what I hated when I was young
I'm the original mixed up kid
I ain't proud of what I did
Now I'm older, calmed down some
I hate what I used to be when I was young
I hate what I used to be when I was young
I hate what I used to be when I was young
