Old Enough Lyrics - The Raconteurs

Review The Song (2)



You look pretty in your fancy dress
But I detect unhappiness
You never speak so I have to guess
You're not free.

There, maybe when you're old enough
You'll realize that you're not so tough
And some days the seas get rough
And you'll see

You're too young to have it figured out
You think you know what you're talking about
You think it all will work itself out
But we'll see

When I was young I thought I knew
You probably think you know too
Do you? Well do you?
I was naive just like you I thought
I knew exactly what I wanted to do
Well, what's you gonna do?
What a fool

And how have you gotten by so far
Without a head and no visible scar?
No one knowin' who you really are
They can't see

What's you gonna do (what's you gonna do)
What's you gonna do now
What's you gonna do (what's you gonna do)
What's you gonna do now
What's you gonna do (what's you gonna do)
What's you gonna do now
What's you gonna do (what's you gonna do)
What's you gonna do now
What's you gonna do now

The only way you'll ever learn a thing
Is to admit that you know absolutely nothing
Oh nothing
Think about this carefully
You might not get another chance to speak freely
Oh freely

Maybe when you're old enough
Maybe when you're old enough
Maybe when you're old enough
You're not free
You're not free

Another Point of View | Reviewer: alexis | 6/18/10

I think this song is done with irony in mind...he's raggin' on all the people who told HIM that he wasn't old enough, or wise enough, or smart enough, probably told him to go to college for a "fall-back" to his music dreams. Kind of a big "f you" to the adults who lectured him and for everyone else who had a dream that was not the "norm"....a bank job, mortgage and kids...what you gonna do now??? HOw many parents give that lecture every minute of every day??



You are soooo cool! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/29/08

I think the lyrics make the singer sound like an arrogant jerk. Perhaps someone a bit older and wiser than he is could say the same thing about him... Whatever. He sounds like a graduate student TA talking down to undergrads. Wow... you are so much cooler than everyone else. If only we could have everything figured out like you do. I am not young enough to know everything anymore... but I would never demean someone else or put on airs that I am now super wise. How old is he anyway?
