I'm An Adult Now
The Pursuit Of Happiness Lyrics


Well, I don't hate my parents
I don't get drunk just to spite them
I've got my own reasons to drink now
I think I'll call my dad up and invite him

I can sleep in till noon anytime I want
Though there's not many days that I do
Gotta get up and take on that world
When your an adult it's no cliche it's the truth

'Cause I'm an adult now
I'm an adult now
I've got the problems of an adult
On my head and on my shoulders
I'm an adult now

I can't even look at young girls anymore
People will think I'm some kind of pervert
Adult sex is either boring or dirty
Young people they can get away with murder

I don't write songs about girls anymore
I have to write songs about women
No more boy meets girl boy loses girl
More like man tries to understand what the hell went wrong

'Cause I'm an adult now
I'm an adult now
I've got the problems of an adult
On my head and on my shoulders
I'm an adult now
I'm an adult now
I'm an adult now

I can't take any more illicit drugs
I can't afford any artificial joy
I'd sure look like a fool dead in a ditch somewhere
With a mind full of chemicals
Like some cheese-eating high school boy

'Cause I'm an adult now
I'm an adult now
I've got the problems of an adult
On my head and on my shoulders
I'm an adult now

Sometimes my head hurts and sometimes my stomach hurts
And I guess it won't be long
For I'm sitting in a room with a bunch
Of people whose necks and backs are aching
Whose sight and hearing's fading
Who just can't seem to get it up
Speaking of hearing, I can't take too much loud music

I mean I like to play it, but I sure don't like the racket
Noise, but I can't hear anything
Just guitars screaming, screaming, screaming
Some guy screaming in a leather jacket
Woah!

I'm an adult now
I'm an adult now
I've got the problems of an adult
On my head and on my shoulders
I'm an adult now

I'm an adult now
I'm an adult now
I've got the problems of an adult
On my head and on my shoulders
I'm an adult now
I'm an adult now
I'm an adult now
I'm an adult now

I would always mock people who would post song lyrics and then say “this song is my life. “But now I get it. This song actually is my life

I was in a band when this song came out. Me and the bass player were watching this video one night. He said: "Man, all that brunette chick does is stand there and swing her arms." and I said: "That's all she HAS to do!". Those were the days.

Dave A

@Tony Roberts Agreed. Great voice. It's really a shame that she only recorded one album with the band. And here it is 30 years later, and I'm STILL dealing with my crush on her!

Tony Roberts

She's a great singer also

Colonel Mustard

Great jam.

Alan Strom

This is one of the best songs ever made/produced/recorded.
I remember buying the 7"vinyl back in 1990 and by owning it a girl and I became a couple.
We saw this Band at The Paddington RSL and they were f%cken' awesome, didn't want the gig to finish.
