lyrics

Everybody's got birthdays this month
Don't know why that is
Must be something 'bout November
Makes our parents get all excited

Every week another birthday party
What's your excuse?
I hate when two fall on the same day
You can't make me choose, no way

We may be too old for birthday cake and for clowns
But we can still have fun
So we'll celebrate the only way we know how
With women, wine and song

Growing old is mandatory, growing up's a choice
I pity those who outgrow playing with their toys
Be an adult when you have to, be a kid when you can
When you are older you will understand

It's a present, not an obligation
I don't want you to think that you have to get me one
But if you like you can buy me a drink

Some people like to spend it with friends
Some on their own
Some people like to paint the town red
Some like to chill out at home

When we go out I'm still the oldest one
It gets rough with them all looking up to me
But all you twenty-somethings have your fun
Soon enough you'll join the thirties club

Growing old is mandatory, growing up's a choice
I pity those who outgrow playing with their toys
Be an adult when you have to, be a kid when you can
When you are older you will understand

Growing old is mandatory, growing up's a choice
I pity those who outgrow playing with their toys
Be an adult when you have to, be a kid when you can
When you are older you will understand

Growing old is mandatory, growing up's a choice
I pity those who outgrow playing with their toys
Be an adult when you have to, be a kid when you can
When you are older you will understand
