The Lyrics

I think little kids are pushed too much to grow up fast. This is a song about it.
Oh yeah,
Kids think their so hot,
But really their so not,
And all act this way,
Why does the world act this way?
Although they want to be teens,
they're clothes say things that are mean,
They know "gay,"
Why does the world act this way?

Tell me why!
Bratz Dolls always wear sexy clothes,
Tell me why!
Girls like to make a modeling pose,
Tell me why bad words are all they ever say,
Why does the world act this way?

Now I can see girls and boys makin' out
before they turn thirteen,(Yeah)
They like 50 cent now and Gwen Stefani,
They act too mature for me!

They think they're so hot,
but realley they're so not,
don't know (4x)

I hear some sayin'
"I want to get a bra now!"
"I look like a fat cow!"
But they don't they just want to act someway,
Why does the world act this way?

Oh why do they act this way?
