Booklet

I believe that when talent meets preparation meets opportunity, you can breed success. For the talent, I thank God and the unique DNA of my wonderful, hilarious family. For the preparation, I thank the brilliant people who have helped me grow musically and personally. We are a team and one to be damn proud of. Finally, for the opportunity… to meet you. YOU are fundamental to my existence, and I will never take that for granted. We will do great things together – you wait, watch & listen. I hope this record will help spark a firework in you to fulfill your dreams, no matter what the obstacles – your pure, true, teenage dreams. From my California cotton candy cloud. Love, the new & improved Katy Hudson-Perry-Brand.

The Making of Katy Perry’s ‘Teenage Dream’ Album Packaging

Lyrics

You think I’m pretty without any make-up on
You think I’m funny when I tell the punch line wrong
I know you get me
So I let my walls come down, down
Before you met me I was alright
But things were kinda heavy
You brought me to life, now every February
You’ll be my Valentine, Valentine

[Pre-Chorus]
Let’s go all the way tonight
No regrets, just love
We can dance until we die
You and I, we’ll be young forever

[Chorus]
You make me
Feel like I’m living a
Teenage dream
The way you turn me on
I can’t sleep
Let’s run away
And don’t ever look back
Don’t ever look back
My heart stops
When you look at me
Just one touch
Now baby I believe
This is real
So take a chance
And don’t ever look back
Don’t ever look back

We drove to Cali and got drunk on the beach
Got a motel and built a fort out of sheets
I finally found you, my missing puzzle piece
I’m complete

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

I’ma get your heart racing
In my skin-tight jeans
Be your teenage dream tonight
Let you put your hands on me
In my skin-tight jeans
Be your teenage dream tonight

[Chorus]

I’ma get your heart racing
In my skin-tight jeans
Be your teenage dream tonight
Let you put your hands on me
In my skin-tight jeans
Be your teenage dream tonight

There’s a stranger in my bed
There’s a pounding in my head
Glitter all over the room
Pink flamingos in the pool
I smell like a mini-bar
DJs passed out in the yard
Barbies on the barbecue
This a hickey or a bruise

[Pre-Chorus]
Pictures of last night
Ended up online
I’m screwed
Oh well
It’s a blackout blur
But I’m pretty sure
It ruled
Damn

[Chorus]
Last Friday night
Yeah, we danced on tabletops
And we took too many shots
Think we kissed but I forgot
Last Friday night
Yeah, we maxed our credit cards
Then got kicked out of the bar
So we hit the boulevard
Last Friday night
We went streaking in the park
Skinny dipping in the dark
Then had a ménage a trois
Last Friday night
Yeah, I think we broke the law
Always say we’re gonna stop
But this Friday night
Do it all again
This Friday night
Do it all again

Trying to connect the dots
Don’t know what to tell my boss
Think the city towed my car
Chandelier is on the floor
Ripped my favorite party dress
Warrants out for my arrest
Think I need a ginger ale
That was such an epic fail

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

T.G.I.F.

[Snoop Dogg]
Greetings, loved ones
Let’s take a journey

I know a place
Where the grass is really greener
Warm, wet and wild
There must be something in the water
Sippin’ gin and juice
Lying underneath the palm tress (undone)
The boys break their necks
Trying to creep a little sneak peek (at us)

You could travel the world
But nothing comes close to the golden coast
Once you party with us
You’ll be falling in love o o o o

[Chorus]
California girls
We’re unforgettable
Daisy Dukes, bikinis on top
Sun-kissed skin so hot
We’ll melt your popsicle
Oh oh oh oh
California girls
We’re undeniable
Fine fresh fierce
We got in lock
West Coast represent, now put your hands up
Oh oh oh oh

Sex on the beach
We don’t mind sand in our stilettos
We freak in my Jeep
Snoop Doggy Dog on the stereo oh oh

You could travel the world
But nothing comes close to the golden coast
Once you party with us
You’ll be falling in love o o o o

[Chorus]

[Snoop Dogg]
Toned tan fit and ready
Turn it up ’cause it’s getting heavy
Wild Wild West Coast
These are the girls I love the most
I mean the one, I mean like she’s the one
Kiss her, touch her, squeeze her buns
The girl’s a freak, she drive a Jeep and live on the beach
I’m okay, I won’t play
I love the bait just like I love LA
Venice Beach and Palm Springs
Summertime is everything
Homeboys bangin’ out
All that ass hangin’ out
Bikinis, zucchinis, martinis, no weenies, just a king and queenie
Katy my lady (yeah)
Lookie here, baby
I’m all up on ya
‘Cause you representin’ California

[Chorus]
California
California

California girls, man

Do you ever feel
Like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind
Wanting to start again
Do you ever feel
Feel so paper-thin
Like a house of cards
One blow from caving in
Do you ever feel
Already buried deep
Six feet under
Screams but no one seems to hear a thing
Do you know that there’s
Still a chance for you
‘Cause there’s a spark in you
You just gotta

[Pre-Chorus]
Ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July

[Chorus]
‘Cause baby, you’re a firework
Come on show ’em what you’re worth
Make ’em go, “Aah, aah, ahh”
As you shoot across the sky
Baby, you’re a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make ’em go, “Aah, aah, aah”
You’re gonna leave them all in awe, awe, awe

You don’t have to feel
Like a wasted space
You’re original
Cannot be replaced
If you only knew
What the future holds
After a hurricane
Comes a rainbow
Maybe the reason why
All the doors were closed
So you could open one
That leads you the perfect road
Like a lightning ball
Your heart with glow
And when it’s time you’ll know
You just gotta

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It’s always been inside of you, you, you
And now it’s time to let it through

[Chorus]

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon

[Verse 1]
I live off the echoes of your “I love you’s”
But I still feel the blows from all of your “don’t want to’s”
When you’re drunk, you say I’m the one
Then you wake up
You suck my heart up in a vacuum

[Chorus]
‘Cause every day’s the same
Definition of insane
I think we’re running on a loop
Déjà vu
So tell me something new
Figure out the Rubik’s Cube
I think we’re running on a loop
Déjà vu

[Verse 2]
Your words are like Chinese water torture
And there’s no finish line, always one more corner
Yeah, they slither like a centipede
Why do you keep me
At the end of a rope that keeps getting shorter?

[Chorus]
‘Cause every day’s the same
Definition of insane
I think we’re running on a loop
Déjà vu
So tell me something new
Figure out the Rubik’s Cube
I think we’re running on a loop
Déjà vu

[Interlude]

[Chorus]
‘Cause every day’s the same
Definition of insane
I think we’re running on a loop
Déjà vu
So tell me something new (Something new)
Figure out the Rubik’s Cube
I think we’re running on a loop
Déjà vu (Déjà, déjà, déjà vu)
‘Cause every day’s the same (Every day’s the same)
Definition of insane (Definition of insane)
I think we’re running on a loop
Déjà vu (Déjà, déjà, déjà vu)

[Outro]
Déjà vu

[Verse 1]
I was fine before I met you
Truth is that I lost myself inside you
It is not fair to put all that on you
But you took control of a vulnerable soul (Yeah)
I am my mother’s daughter
And there are so many things I love about her
But I have, I have to break the cycle
So I can sit first at the dinner table

[Chorus]
You can’t clip my wings, can’t wilt my flowers
Stole my time, but I’ll make up the hours
‘Cause I’m a goddess and you know it
Some respect, you better show it
I’m done with you siphoning my power
Power

[Verse 2]
Hell hath no fury like a woman reborn
And now I’m burning like a blue flame once more
But don’t mistake my warmth for weakness
Don’t bite the hand that feeds or you’ll
You’ll never eat, no-oh

[Chorus]
You can’t clip my wings, can’t wilt my flowers
Stole my time, but I’ll make up the hours
‘Cause I’m a goddess and you know it
Some respect, you better show it
I’m done with you siphoning my power
Power (Hey)

[Bridge]
And now I’m taking it back
Electric as fuck (C’mon)
You can’t quiet this thunder, no (No-oh-oh)
Yeah, I’m taking it back
Lit all the way up
Even in the dark, I glow (I glow, I glow)

[Chorus]
You can’t clip my wings, can’t wilt my flowers
Stole my time, but I’ll make up the hours, oh
‘Cause I’m a goddess and you know it
Some respect, you better show it
I’m done with you siphoning my power
Power

[Verse 1]
I’m losing all direction
Slipping into quicksand
I’ve shattered the illusion
Seen behind the curtain
I’m disenchanted
Dancing on a wire
Juggling desire
Every hit gets harder
When you’re fighting without armor
I’m disheartened

[Pre-Chorus]
Do I start over, rediscover?
Submit to the sweet surrender

[Chorus]
It’s a mind maze, all these head games
Caught in a cage (Caught in a cage), a complex cage
Am I a car on fire?
Will I be devoured?
I gotta free myself and get out of my own way

[Verse 2]
I used to be so sparkling
But now it’s not so charming
What used to stimulate me
Now can barely wake me
I’m unresponsive
Will I find salvation?
Some kind of moderation?
Spinning all these plates is
Gonna be a challenge
A delicate balance

[Pre-Chorus]
So do I start over, rediscover?
Submit to the sweet surrender

[Chorus]
It’s a mind maze, all these head games
Caught in a cage (Caught in a cage), a complex cage
Am I a car on fire?
Will I be devoured?
I gotta free myself and get out of my own way

[Refrain]
Get out of my own way
Get out of my own way
Get out of my own way

[Outro]
So do I start over, re-rediscover?
I submit to your, your sweet surrender
Your sweet surrender
Your sweet surrender
No

[Verse 1]
Saw your picture on accident
Your face has changed
The lines are sinking in
I pressed play, I should haven’t
Congratulations
But do you ever wonder what we could have been?
(I wonder what we could have been)

[Pre-Chorus 1]
But your mind plays tricks with distance
Always makes things feel so unfinished

[Chorus]
I miss you more than I loved you
I do
I miss you more than I loved you
(I wonder what we could have been)
I miss you more than I loved you
I do
I miss you more than I loved you
(I wonder what we could have been)

[Verse 2]
I saw a balloon floating away
I thought, “Did someone let go, or did they lose it?”
So strange, you know all my secrets
Please keep them safe
And darling, you know that I’ll do the same
(You know that I’ll do the same)

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Though we’re no longer in existence
Baby, you’ll always be in my orbit

[Chorus]
I miss you more than I loved you
I do
I miss you more than I loved you
(I wonder what we could have been)
I miss you more than I loved you
Oh, I do
I miss you more than I loved you

[Bridge]
We were a match, but not a fit
We were a dream, unrealistic
We didn’t lose, we didn’t win
(Sometimes I wonder what we could have been)
Oh

[Chorus]
I miss you more than I loved you
Oh, I do
I miss you more than I loved you
(I wonder what we could have been)
I miss you more than I loved you
(Though we’re no longer in existence)
Oh, I do
I miss you more than I loved you
(You’ll always be in my orbit)

[Outro]
Ohh-oh-oh-oh (You’ll always be in my orbit)
No-oh-oh-oh-oh (You’ll always be in my orbit)

[Verse 1: Katy Perry]
Are we crazy?
Living our lives through a lens
Trapped in our white picket fence
Like ornaments
So comfortable, we’re living in a bubble, bubble
So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble
Aren’t you lonely
Up there in utopia
Where nothing will ever be enough?
Happily numb
So comfortable, we’re living in a bubble, bubble
So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble

[Pre-Chorus: Katy Perry]
So put your rose-colored glasses on
And party on

[Chorus: Katy Perry]
Turn it up, it’s your favorite song
Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
Come on, turn it up, keep it on repeat
Stumbling around like a wasted zombie
Yeah, we think we’re free
Drink, this one is on me
We’re all chained to the rhythm
To the rhythm
To the rhythm
Turn it up, it’s your favorite song
Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
Come on, turn it up, keep it on repeat
Stumbling around like a wasted zombie
Yeah, we think we’re free
Drink, this one is on me
We’re all chained to the rhythm
To the rhythm
To the rhythm

[Verse 2: Katy Perry]
Are we tone deaf?
Keep sweeping it under the mat
Thought we could do better than that
I hope we can
So comfortable, we’re living in a bubble, bubble
So comfortable, we cannot see the trouble, trouble

[Pre-Chorus: Katy Perry]
So put your rose-colored glasses on
And party on

[Chorus: Katy Perry]
Turn it up, it’s your favorite song
Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
Come on, turn it up, keep it on repeat
Stumbling around like a wasted zombie
Yeah, we think we’re free
Drink, this one is on me
We’re all chained to the rhythm
To the rhythm
To the rhythm
Turn it up, it’s your favorite song
Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
Come on, turn it up, keep it on repeat
Stumbling around like a wasted zombie
Yeah, we think we’re free
Drink, this one is on me
We’re all chained to the rhythm
To the rhythm
To the rhythm

[Bridge: Skip Marley]
It is my desire
Break down the walls to connect, inspire
Ay, up in your high place, liars
Time is ticking for the empire
The truth they feed is feeble
As so many times before
They greed over the people
They stumbling and fumbling
And we’re about to riot
They woke up, they woke up the lions
(Woo!)

[Chorus: Katy Perry]
Turn it up, it’s your favorite song
Dance, dance, dance to the distortion
Come on, turn it up, keep it on repeat
Stumbling around like a wasted zombie
Yeah, we think we’re free
Drink, this one is on me
We’re all chained to the rhythm
To the rhythm
To the rhythm

[Outro: Katy Perry]
Turn it up
Turn it up
It goes on, and on, and on
It goes on, and on, and on
It goes on, and on, and on
‘Cause we’re all chained to the rhythm

[Verse 1]
Please don’t tip-toe
Come close, let’s flow
Anchor in me, and get lost at sea
The world’s your oyster and I am the pearl
Open waters
Sink into me slowly

[Chorus]
So baby, come and take a swim with me
Make me ripple ’til I’m wavy
Don’t be scared to dive in deep
And start a tsunami
Tsunami

[Verse 2]
Don’t fight
Just ride the rhythm of the tide
We swirl, we spin
Salted, sun-kissed skin
We float together
Whatever weather
Embrace the breeze and sail away smoothly

[Chorus]
So baby, come and take a swim with me
Make me ripple ’til I’m wavy
Don’t be scared to dive in deep
And start a tsunami
Tsunami

[Bridge]
Oh, you’re waking up an ocean of emotion
That my body can’t hide (Can’t hide)
Tsunami (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
Now you’re soaked in my devotion
‘Cause you opened up a paradise (Inside)
Tsunami (Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Tsunami

[Chorus]
So baby, come and take a swim with me (Take a swim with me)
Make me ripple ’til I’m wavy (Make me ripple, baby)
Don’t be scared to dive in deep (Don’t be scared to)
And start a tsunami
Tsunami

[Intro: Quavo]
Ayy, yeah
Katy Perry, Migos
Ayy!

[Chorus: Katy Perry]
‘Cause I’m all that you want, boy
All that you can have, boy
Got me spread like a buffet
Bon a, bon appétit, baby
Appetite for seduction
Fresh out the oven
Melt in your mouth kind of lovin’
Bon a, bon appétit, baby (Woo)

[Verse 1: Katy Perry]
Looks like you’ve been starving
You’ve got those hungry eyes (Woo)
You could use some sugar
‘Cause your levels ain’t right (Woo)
I’m a five-star Michelin
A Kobe flown in (Woo)
You want what I’m cooking, boy

[Pre-Chorus: Katy Perry]
Let me take you (Woo)
Under candlelight
We can wine and dine
A table for two
And it’s okay (Woo)
If you take your time
Eat with your hands, fine
I’m on the menu

[Chorus: Katy Perry]
‘Cause I’m all that you want, boy
All that you can have, boy
Got me spread like a buffet
Bon a, bon appétit, baby
Appetite for seduction
Fresh out the oven
Melt in your mouth kind of lovin’
Bon a, bon appétit, baby (Woo)

[Verse 2: Katy Perry & Quavo]
So you want some more
Well I’m open 24 (Woo)
Wanna keep you satisfied
Customer’s always right (Woo)
Hope you’ve got some room
For the world’s best cherry pie (Woo)
Gonna hit that sweet tooth, (Ayy) boy

[Pre-Chorus: Katy Perry, Quavo, & Both]
Let me take you (Woo)
Under candlelight
We can wine and dine
A table for two
And it’s okay (Woo)
If you take your time (Ayy)
Eat with your hands, fine (Yeah)
I’m on the menu
Go ahead

[Chorus: Katy Perry & Quavo]
‘Cause I’m all that you want, boy (All that you want)
All that you can have, boy (Ayy)
Got me spread like a buffet
Bon a, bon appétit, baby (Bon appétit)
Appetite for seduction
Fresh out the oven (Fresh out the oven)
Melt in your mouth kind of lovin’
Bon appétit, baby
‘Cause I’m all that you want, boy
All that you can have, boy
Got me spread like a buffet
Bon a, bon appétit, baby (Bon appétit)
Appetite for seduction
Fresh out the oven
Melt in your mouth kind of lovin’
Bon a, bon appétit, baby
Quavo

[Verse 3: Quavo]
Sweet potato pie
It’ll change your mind (Change)
Got you running back for seconds (Running)
Every single night

[Verse 4: Takeoff]
I’m the one they say can change your life (Takeoff)
No waterfall, she drippin’ wet, you like my ice? (Blast)
She say she want a Migo night
Now I ask her, “What’s the price?” (Hold on)
If she do right, told her get whatever you like

[Verse 5: Offset]
Offset
I grab her legs and now divide, aight
Make her do a donut when she ride, aight
Looking at the eyes of a dime, make you blind
In her spine and my diamonds change the climate

[Verse 6: Quavo & Katy Perry]
Sweet tooth, no tooth fairy
Whipped cream, no dairy
Got her hot light on, screaming, “I’m ready”
But no horses, no carriage

[Chorus: Katy Perry & Quavo]
‘Cause I’m all that you want, boy (All that you want)
All that you can have, boy (Oh)
Got me spread like a buffet
Bon a, bon appétit, baby (Eat it up, eat it up, eat it up)
Appetite for seduction (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Fresh out the oven
Melt in your mouth kind of lovin’
Bon a, bon appétit, baby
Bon appétit

[Outro: Quavo & Katy Perry]
Under candlelight (Yeah, woo)
Bon appétit, baby

[Verse 1]
I remember when you used to be my every other thought
But now my calendar’s so full, it’s easier to move on
Sometimes I swear I pass your SUV on Sunset Boulevard
I don’t fuck with change, but lately, I’ve been flipping coins a lot

[Chorus]
I struggle
I juggle
I could just throw a line to you
But I should let sleeping dogs lie
‘Cause I know better, baby
I write it
Erase it
Repeat it
But what good will it do to reopen the wound?
So I take a deep breath and I save as draft

[Verse 2]
You don’t have to subtweet me
My number’s always been the same
But all’s been said and done
Will we ever really close this case?
Yeah, I will always be here for you, but I could no longer stay
Still my body goes in shock every time I hear your name

[Chorus]
I struggle
I juggle
I could just throw a line to you
But I should let sleeping dogs lie
‘Cause I know better, baby
I write it
Erase it
Repeat it
But what good will it do to reopen the wound?
So I take a deep breath and I save as draft

[Bridge]
I’ve heard you’ve done some changing
I’ve been rearranging
Wish that I could know, but I just don’t know
Never get that time back
Fear we’d fall in old traps
Why can’t we just let go?
Staring at a fork in the fucking road

[Chorus]
I struggle
I juggle
I could just throw a line to you
But I should let sleeping dogs lie (Dogs lie)
‘Cause I know better, baby
I write it
Erase it
Repeat it
But what good will it do to reopen the wound?
So I take a deep breath and I save as draft

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
If I lost it all today, would you stay?
Could my love be enough to stimulate?
If shit hit the fan, grenades got thrown
Would you still show, oh?
Could you go down with me to the mat?
Could we get back up and eventually laugh?
Roll eyes at highs, cheers in the lows, and stay in the flow, whoa

[Pre-Chorus]
‘Cause I, I only got this life
And I ain’t got the time, no
Not to get it right, oh

[Chorus]
We’re all just looking for connection
Yeah, we all want to be seen
I’m looking for someone who speaks my language
Someone to ride this ride with me
Can I get a witness? (Witness)
Will you be my witness? (Witness)
I’m just looking for a witness in all of this
Looking for a witness to get me through this

[Verse 2]
When you tell me everything, and there’s no holes
You can scroll through anything, you’ve got the codes
Nothing to hide, it’s all in their eyes
And we just know, whoa

[Pre-Chorus]
‘Cause I, I only got this life
And I ain’t got the time, no
Not to get it right, oh

[Chorus]
We’re all just looking for connection
Yeah, we all want to be seen
I’m looking for someone who speaks my language
Someone to ride this ride with me
Can I get a witness? (Witness)
Will you be my witness? (Witness)
I’m just looking for a witness (yeah) in all of this (Oh)
Looking for a witness to get me through this
(Through this, through this, through this, through this)
(Through this, through this, through this, through this)

[Bridge]
Will you be my witness?
Could you be the one that speaks for me?
Will you be my witness?

[Chorus]
We’re all just looking for connection (We’re all just looking)
Yeah, we all want to be seen
I’m looking for someone who speaks my language
Someone (To ride this ride) to ride this ride with me (With me)
Can I get a witness? (Witness)
Will you be my witness? (Witness)
(Will you be my witness?)
I’m just looking for a witness in all of this
Looking for a witness to get me through this

Yeah, I bounce back like a pro ’cause I’m so resilient
LOL at all your limits
Keep your penny thoughts, I’m making a mint

[Pre-Chorus]
‘Cause I can be zen and I can be the storm, yeah
Smell like a rose and I pierce like a thorn, yeah
Karate chopping the clichés and norms all in a dress

[Chorus]
Hey, hey, hey
You think that I’m a little baby
You think that I am fragile like a Fabergé
You think that I am cracking, but you can’t break me
No-o-o-o-oh, no way
No-o-o-o-oh, no way
No-o-o-o-oh, no way
You think that I am cracking, but you can’t break me (uh-uh)
(Br-br-break me)

[Bridge]
I ain’t got no strings (No strings…)
I’m no one’s little puppet
Got my own cha-ching, in my chubby little wallet
And secretly you love it
(You fucking love it)
And secretly you love it

[Chorus]
Hey, hey, hey (Hey)
You think that I’m a little baby
You think that I am fragile like a Fabergé
You think that I am cracking, but you can’t break me
No-o-o-o-oh
Hey, hey, hey
You think that I’m a little baby
You think that I am fragile like a Fabergé
You think that I am cracking, but you can’t break me
No-o-o-o-oh, no way (No)
No-o-o-o-oh, no way (No way)
No-o-o-o-oh, no way (Uh-uh)
Oh, you think that I am cracking, but you can’t break me (Uh-uh)
(Br-br-break me)

[Verse 1]
I’m thirty-something going on thirteen
Still a sponge to everything
Saucer eyes wide, yeah, I still believe
And a sparkle in my steps
Smiling with my teeth

[Pre-Chorus]
They say that I might lose my Midas touch
They also say I may become irrelevant
But who the fuck are they anyway?
I don’t care what they say

[Chorus]
I won’t act my age
Time is just an invention man has made
No, I won’t act my age
It’s just my reflection that is out of date
‘Cause it’s all in your attitude
It’s all in your point of view
I won’t act my age
Just need a little bit of Peter Pan and some imagination
No, I won’t act my age

[Verse 2]
So, I recommend that you lose your mind
It was the only thing that was keeping me behind

[Pre-Chorus]
They say curb your curiosity
They also say prepare to amend your dreams
But who the fuck are they anyway?
I don’t care what they say

[Chorus]
‘Cause I won’t act my age
Time is just an invention man has made
No, I won’t act my age
It’s just my reflection that is out of date
‘Cause it’s all in your attitude
It’s all in your point of view
I won’t act my age (c’mon)
Just need a little bit of Peter Pan and some imagination
No, I won’t act my age

[Bridge]
How old would you be? Yeah
How old would you really be
If you didn’t know, yeah
How old you really were?
How old would you be? Yeah
How old would you really be
If you didn’t know (Know)
How old you really were?
(Hey!)

[Chorus]
I won’t act my age
Time is just an invention man has made
No, I won’t act my age
It’s just my reflection that is out of date
‘Cause it’s all in your attitude
It’s all in your point of view
I won’t act my age
Just need a little bit of Peter Pan and some imagination
No, I won’t act my age

[Outro]
Oh-oh, I won’t act my age
Ooh, yeah, ooh
Ooh, yeah, ooh
I won’t act my age
