Jonathan Richman - Just About 17 lyrics

I'm about seventeen I guess
I read what the calendar said
But I'm not about to drop dead
I just happened on the scene
And since I wake up in the morning
And I love the world
Like a boy like a boy
Chasin his first girl
What do numbers mean?
I'm about seventeen

Let's get to the program
Wang dang do dang
Wang dang do dang
Just about seventeen
I say
Wang dang do dang
Wang dang do dang
Just about seventeen

And since I still want to laugh
And I still want to go
And since you still can't beat me
For rock and roll
What do numbers mean?
I'm about seventeen

I say I'm about seventeen
Yeah I know I read what the calendar said
But my heart is not yet dead
In fact I'm just showin up here on the scene
And since I walk down your street
With a certain joy
Usually found in a girl
Kissing her first boy
What do numbers mean?
I'm about seventeen

Wang dang do dang
Wang dang do dang
Just about seventeen
I say
Wang dang do dang
Wang dang do dang
Just about seventeen

? years ? getting older
It still sounds so strange
I wake up and I know
That I havent changed
You know what I mean
I'm about seventeen
