       D A Bm A G...


D           A              Bm       A
Your little hands wrapped around my finger
         G               A
And it's so quiet in the world tonight
D           A                         
Your little eyelids 
Bm                   A  
Flutter cause you're dreaming
     G                        
So I tuck you in 
             A
Turn on your favorite night light


G                         Bm   
To you, everything's funny
                     G
You got nothing to regret
                         A                                         
I'd give all I have honey
- A -                              
If you could stay like that


D     A                 Bm        A             
Oohhh darling don't you ever grow up, 
          G
Don't you ever grow up
     A               D
Just stay this little
    A                 Bm        A             
Ohh darling don't you ever grow up, 
          G
Don't you ever grow up
         A               G
It could stay this simple


                           Bm
I won't let nobody hurt you
                           G
Wont let no one break your heart
                      A
No one will desert you
                       D A Bm A G A
Just try to never grow up
           D A Bm A G A
Never grow up


D             A          Bm         A
You're in the car on the way to the movies
           G                    A               
And you're mortified your mom's dropping you off
D      A                     Bm             A
At fourteen, there's just so much you can't do
              G
And you can't wait to move out
            A
Someday and call your own shots


G                                               Bm
But don't make her drop you off around the block
                                  G
Remember that she's getting older too
- G -                                                           
And don't lose the way that you dance 
 A                                 
Around in your PJs getting ready for school


D  A                 Bm        A             
Oh darling don't you ever grow up, 
          G
Don't you ever grow up
     A               D
Just stay this little
   A                 Bm        A            
Oh darling don't you ever grow up, 
          G
Don't you ever grow up
          A              G
It could stay this simple
                         Bm
And no one's ever burned you
                       G
Nothin's ever left you scarred
                           A
And even though you want to
                       D A Bm A G A
Just try to never grow up
                            

G                     D                      A       G
Take pictures in your mind of your childhood rooOOoom
                 D                      A
Memorize what is sounded like what your dad gets home
                 G                   D
Remember the footsteps, remember the words said
             Asus4                     A
And all your little brother's favorite songs
G               D            Asus4                   A        
I just realized everything I had is someday gonna be gone


D         A        Bm       A
So here I am in my new apartment
     G                    A
In a big city, they just dropped me off
D            A            Bm          A
It's so much colder than I thought it would be
     G                          A            G  D  Asus4 
So I tuck myself in and turn my nightlight on


                     G  D  Asus4
Wish I'd never grown up
           A                         
I wish I'd never grown up


D     A       Bm           A                
Ohhh, I don't want to grow up
         G                   
Wish I'd never grown up
      A
Could still be little
D   A         Bm           A
Ooohh I don't want to grow up 
         G
Wish I'd never grown up 
         A              D
It could still be simple


   A                 Bm        A                      
Oh darling don't you ever grow up, 
          G
Don't you ever grow up
     A               D
Just stay this little
   A                 Bm        A            
Oh darling don't you ever grow up, 
          G
Don't you ever grow up
         A               D
It could stay this simple


 A       Bm               A       G
Ooooh, I won't let nobody hurt you
          A                 D    A
Won't let no one break your heart
    Bm              A       G
And even though you want too
       A                 D 
Please try to never grow up
          

A Bm  A  G    A                     D       
Ohhhohoh,ohhoh, don't you ever grow up
A Bm A  G              A               D -once
Ohhhoh,- never grow up - just never grow up
