Well, I don't hate my parents I don't get drunk just to spite them I got my own reasons to drink now I think I'll call my dad up and invite him! I can sleep in till noon any time I want Though there's not many days that I do Gotta get up and take on that world When you're an adult, it's no cliche, it's the truth. I can't even look at young girls anymore People will think I'm some kind of pervert Adult sex is either boring or dirty Young people, they can get away with murder I don't write songs about girls anymore I have to write songs about women No more boy meets girl, boy loses girl More like man tries to figure out what the Hell went wrong. I can't take any more illicit drugs I can't afford any artificial joy I'd sure look like a fool dead in a ditch somewhere With a mind full of chemicals Like some cheese-eating high school boy. I'm an adult now I'm an adult now I've got the problems of an adult On my head and on my shoulders I'm an adult now. Sometimes my head hurts and sometimes my stomach hurts And I guess it won't be long 'Til I'm sitting in a room with a bunch Of people whose necks and backs are aching Whose sight and hearing's failing Who just can't seem to get it up Speaking of hearing, I can't take too much loud music I mean I like to play it, but I sure don't like the racket Noise, but I can't hear anything Just guitars screaming, screaming, screaming Some guy screaming in a leather jacket Whoaah!

Berg was a friend of director Nelu Ghiran, whom he hired in to produce a low budget music video for the song. This drew the attention of executives at record label WEA Music Canada , which obtained rights to re-press the single for national distribution in The US cable television station MTV at first refused to broadcast the music video because of its references to drug and alcohol use and sex, but that decision was later reconsidered and the video was aired.
