Cee-Lo - Gettin' Grown

Well well

Hey little boy you're not allowed to stay
You have to evolve inevitably
And I've sure come a long way

The road up ahead is so unclear
Back slidin' down the bottom of beer
Nobody knew if I would make it here

And hey sweet music set me free
From the statistic that I started to be
I wish my mama was alive to see

The memories of the pain have scarred
And when I fall it's usually hard
But I get up and keep followin' God

Hey I'm gettin' grown gettin' grown
(La la la la la la la la la la)
Gettin' grown I'm gettin' grown hey
(La la la la la la la la la la)

Now I remember the good ol' days
Broads and boxes and blunts to blaze
Now I got three children to raise

I-I-I never won't be perfect I know
But workin' on it is worth it I know
Life is just learning as you go

Been selfish once or twice
I had to learn how to sacrifice
To live to my late nineties'd be nice

Every day that goes by I find
It either hits me or it robs me blind
God I owe You this life of mine

I'm gettin' grown I'm gettin' grown
(La la la la la la la la la la)
Gettin' grown gettin' grown
(La la la la la la la la la la)

Ooh time changed but it feels the same
There's no tellin' what tomorrow will bring
Even if I could I wouldn't change a thang

And hey hey Lord I know I'm not here to stay
But thanks for wakin' me up today
Prepare me for what may come my way

And hey say young man there's no need to cry
Because I know you will get by
Look your destiny in the eye

Ooh everyday my heart burns to try
You got to walk before you learn to fly
And we all got to earn to die

I'm gettin' grown I'm gettin' grown
(La la la la la la la la la la)
Gettin' grown gettin' grown
(La la la la la la la la la la)

I'm gettin' grown I'm gettin' grown
(La la la la la la la la la la)
Gettin' grown gettin' grown
(La la la la la la la la la la)

I'm gettin' grown I'm gettin' grown
(La la la la la la la la la la)
Gettin' grown gettin' grown
(La la la la la la la la la la)
