I've had enough of bein' programmed
And told what I ought to do
Let's get one thing straight, I'll choose my fate
And it's got nothin' to do with you

The years are flyin' by and it's time I got high
Took a sample of the good things in life
This is a chance, I'm gonna take
Gonna kick out trouble and strife

I grow sick and tired of the same old lies
Might look a little young, so what's wrong?
You don't have to be old to be wise

No I don't care that the people stare
Accuse me of goin' mad
Just get a long hard look into the mirror
Then, tell me now who's been had

The way things are goin', I won't get to show 'em
Go single all the time, up to me
So it's off with the ties, no compromise
Wanna taste what it's like to be free

I grow sick and tired of the same old lies
Might look a little young, so what's wrong?
You don't have to be old to be wise

I grow sick and tired of the same old lies
Might look a little young, so what's wrong?
You don't have to be old to be wise

Alright, I'm gonna gather my things
Go through the door
Live and let live from now on
At last a free hand, no longer pre-planned
I got a will of my own

I go as I please, fend for myself
Pull all the stops, throw the dice
Out on my own, gonna go it alone
When I need it then I'll ask for advice

You don't have to be old to be wise
You don't have to be old to be wise
You don't have to be old to be wise
...
