Problem children

When we are older
When we are older
 
We are problem children
Even when delirious
We just laugh
Tomorrow we'll do better
 
It's true that we're a bother
We seem strange
Some of us are wanting
For a bit of maturity
 
Other people are wary
They often look down on us
Too bad if they judge us,
As long as we are together
 
They want to set us straight
Just ignore them
We can still kid around
As life is a game
 
[Refrain]
We will be more peaceful
We will be less frivolous
We will be less trouble
When we are older
 
We will be more wise
We will be more serious
We will be more calm
When we are older
 
We will be more peaceful
We will be less frivolous
We will be less trouble
When we are older
 
Much more reasonable
Much more respectable
And more approachable
When we are older
 
It's not in books
That we learn to live
That we learn to laugh
That we learn to be happy
 
A lot of recklessness
A lot of agitation
Take the initiative
And take it all in
 
Wander all night
In the streets of Paris
Take the leap
And play with fire
 
To keep from getting bored
And as time flies by
We have fun growing up
Without being serious
 
[Refrain]
 
When we are older
When we are
When we are older
When we are older
 
Time is too short
So grow older with love
We'll still be problem children in their eyes
Our love surprises
We must tell them that they were wrong
We have even more love
Now that we are older
(x2)
 
[Refrain]
 
When we are older
When we are
When we are older
When we are
 
Thanks!
