hiro’s song lyrics – ben folds

my name is hiro
i am 51
since 1980
life has been no fun
and i
don’t wanna die!

i left my family for the secretary

uh uh, uh uh, uh uh, uh uh

her name is yuko
she is 22
she and my daughter
were best friends in high school
they say i’m crazy
and it’s temporary
but i refuse to rot like my contemporaries

i, i wanna explode

in a karaoke super nova

i don’t wanna grow old
won’t you let me
won’t you let me explode
i don’t wanna grow old
won’t you let me
won’t you let me explode
in a karaoke super nova, yeah

uh uh, uh uh, uh uh, uh uh

last night she dressed me up in hip-hop pants
the phat-g style that rides below your *ss
she wants to show me to her mom and dad
i told her i would not be down with that

coz lately i can feel the years between us
and hope to god that friends at work don’t see us
tonight she asked me if i’d ever seen jesus
coz she had back stage p*sses for the three of us

i don’t wanna grow old
won’t you let me
won’t you let me explode
i don’t wanna grow old
won’t you let me
won’t you let me explode, uh oh
in a karaoke super nova, yeah

so now she’s gone and broke my heart, god d*mn her
turns out she’s been f***ing this drum programmer
she likes his style, she likes his rock-star glamour
well shes an infant, he can d*mn well have her

i don’t wanna grow old
won’t you let me
won’t you let me explode
i don’t wanna grow old
won’t you let me
won’t you let me explode

i don’t wanna grow old (don’t wanna grow old)
won’t you let me
won’t you let me explode
i don’t wanna grow old (don’t wanna grow old)
won’t you let me
won’t you let me explode, uh oh
in a karaoke super nova

alright
alright bring the saxes in
that’s good, keep it up
okay some more overtones, bring in the tamborines
yeah, sh*t yeah
more sh*t, come on bring in some more sh*t
baby, come on
alright
it’s all, it’s all me baby, come on!
yeah!
