Yes, I realize this has been done several times before and that
there are several versions on this site. However, none of them
were perfect. This one has all the right rhythms/measure spacing,
every single note was double—checked and played along with
to make sure it was absolutely correct, and the order and number
of times each section is played is flawless. Its such a fun son,
enjoy. =)

Lyrics:

I took her out,
It was a Friday night.
i walk alone
To get the feeling right.
We started making out,
And she took off my pants,
But then I turned on the T.V.
And thats about the time she walked away from me.
Nobody likes you when your twenty—three.
And I should more of missed my T.V. shows
What the hell is A.D.D.?
My friends say I should act my age,
Whats my age again?
Whats my age again?

And later on,
On the drive home.
I called her mom,
From a pay phone.
I said I was the cops,
And your husbands in jail.
The state looks down on sodomy,
And thats about the time that bitch hung up on me.
Nobody likes you when your twenty—three.
And I shall more of make these prank phone calls.
What the hell is call I.D.?
My friends say I should act my age.
Whats my age again?
Whats my age again?



And thats about the time she walked away from me.
Nobody likes you when your twenty—three.
And you still act like your in freshman year.
What the hell is wrong with me?
My friends say I should act my age.
Whats my age again?
Thats about the time that she broke up with me.
Noone should take themselves so seriously.
With many years I've had to fall in line.
Why would you wish that on me?
I never want to act my age.
Whats my age again?
Whats my age again?
