fall is just something grownups invented lyrics – hives

they say our summer vacation has come to an end,
and we simply have no more holidays to spend.
they say “no more barefoot, no playing around in the pool.”
they say now it’s time for us to “go back to school”.

got all my friends and a teacher, ok,
but why do we really have to study all day?
well, see i’m on to your scam and i’ll tell ya how
we ended up with a fall that we know in all.

a time was invented to keep the kids in the hall,
they gave it a name and we all know it as “fall”.
the headline of the story that i have presented:
fall is just something that grown-ups invented.

(vocalizing)

though some things in fall are just too good to p*ss:
jumping in leaves and halloween is a gas.
but i’d rather see to it that the truth be told,
so i better do it now before i grow old –

they wanted a break after the summer disarray,
to rest up then handle the stress of christmas day.
so the grown-ups got together and made up the rule
that kids shouldn’t be playing, no they should be in school!

a time was invented to keep the kids in the hall,
they gave it a name and we all know it as “fall”.
the headline of the story that i have presented:
fall is just something that grown-ups invented.

(vocalizing)

kick it!

(instrumental break)

a time was invented to keep the kids in the hall,
they gave it a name and we all know it as “fall”.
the headline of the story that i have presented:
fall is just something that grown-ups invented!

fall is just something that grown-ups invented.
fall is just something that grown-ups invented.
fall is just something that grown-ups invented.
fall is just something that grown-ups invented!
