lyrics

My tutor smells like iron and clay
He biked through the rain again
I ask him why he doesn't drive
But he just smiles and he never
explains

His phone's smashed like spider webs
Just get a new one I said

I guess when I'm older it will become plain
Like these are all some sort of
Grown-Up Games

Now mummy's back from her apartment in New York City
We watch the news on the TV
There's a crowd on screen my tutor's clear in sight
And his cardboard sign says, "Robin Hood was
Right"

"If you want my money," scoffs mummy,
"Get a job, stop
complaining"

I guess when I'm older it will become plain
Like these are all some sort of
Grown-Up Games

Days later my tutor arrives
I said, "Don't teach me to multiply, teach me why
mum and you don't like each other but you've never met"
He said, "I'm sure we'd like each other but it's more complex than
that"

I guess when I'm older it will become plain
Like these are all some sort of
Grown-Up Games

Double Dutch, Hop-Scotch
I don't wanna think so much
Marco Polo, Jungle Gym
Back to those school yard antics
Hide and Seek, Merry-Go-Round
Let the adults sort it out
Cops and Robbers, Simon Says
For now I'll just go out and play
X2
