Really Big Chickens

lyrics

Growing up isn't fast
In fact, it's so slow that you don't see it happen
I turned around one day to find
I work a job and I need to file taxes

But I still like fun
And I still like games
And I still wanna know all the dinosaurs' names

Dinosaurs were just really, really big chickens
Growing up is just being a really big kid

I don't feel old, and I don't feel together
Or like I'm one of the herd
I feel like I just missed a whole week of class
Where they learned how to cook and how not to be awkward

I need a YouTube tutorial
That shows how to get me the life that I'm after
I'm just gonna be that one girl who will tell you
That thing's too big to be a velociraptor

Dinosaurs were just really, really big chickens
Growing up is just being a really big kid

Time goes by quickly now
A lot has changed since I was a kid
There used to be something called a "brontosaurus"
And dinosaurs didn't have feathers, but now we're pretty sure that they did

Covered in feathers, weird
It's gonna be OK

Dinosaurs were just really, really big chickens
Growing up is just being a really big kid
