song by Raleigh Ritchie
You're a Man Now, Boy lyrics

Still got the same feet and the same hands
That I did when they made me, little man
But now I wear a suit and tie and Ray Bans
And I've swapped the fizzy drinks out for beer cans
I was a Small Soldier and I still am
Can't say what has changed apart from days and
I loved Jurassic Park, well, I still do
Actually, I'm the same except that now I take a pill or two

You're a man now, boy
You're a man now, boy
You're a man now, boy
You're a man now, boy
You're a man now, boy
You're a man now, boy
You're a man now, boy
You're a man now, boy

(I'm not growing up, I'm aging
My mind's incarcerated
Still a boy
You're a man now, boy
And though this body's taller
Sometimes I feel smaller,
Just a boy
You're a man now, boy)

Pain is still a weakness, still afraid of ghosts
Still partial to a Mars Bar and a Sunday roast
Though now I have to think about the water bills
Still feel a pang of guilt about the snails I killed
I smoke too many cigarettes and drink too much
See the news and feel the blues, I'm feeling out of touch
I was an astronaut once upon a time,
Now I'm tryna stay grounded,
Keep some order in my life

You're a man now, boy
You're a man now, boy
You're a man now, boy
You're a man now, boy
You're a man now, boy
You're a man now, boy
You're a man now, boy
You're a man now, boy

(I'm not growing up, I'm aging
My mind's incarcerated
Still a boy
You're a man now, boy
And though this body's taller
Sometimes I feel smaller,
Just a boy
You're a man now, boy)

You're a man now, boy
You're a man now, boy
You're a man now, boy
You're a man now, boy
You're a man now, boy
You're a man now, boy
You're a man now, boy
You're a man now, boy

(I'm not growing up, I'm aging
My mind's incarcerated
Just a boy)
