Can't stay out late, can't have no fun, 21 (21, la la la la oh)
Folks say you have to be 21, 21 (21, la la la la oh)
I'll have a dance, you just wait & see
Oh I'll be 21 & fancy free
Wo wo wo wo wo wo hey, 21, 21

Can't go steady, can't even have a date, 21 (21, la la la la oh)
How in the world will I ever find a mate? 21 (21, la la la la oh)
I'll have a dance, I'll be 21, yeah
They're out fun, here I am
Wo wo wo wo wo wo hey, 21, 21

When my 21st birthday finally comes, oh yeah
I'm gonna sound the bugles, beat the drums
I'm gonna stay out all night; I won't even go to bed
I'm gonna find me a paintbrush, hah, & paint the whole town red, yeah

I'll get married & raise a family, 21 (21, la la la la oh)
All my kids are gonna look like me, 21 (21, la la la la oh)
They'll grow up & get carefree
I'll tell them like they told me: uh uh!
(repeat & fade):
No no no no no no hey, 21, 21
