It's what I am.

"Girls Grow up Faster Than Boys"

Girls grow up faster than boys do
Girls grow up faster than boys

Girls grow up faster than boys do
So, baby, I'm old enough for you
Once you used to date my big sister
Now, baby, she's too old for you

Won't you take a look at me now
You'll be surprised at what you see now
I'm everything a girl should be now

I don't really know where to start but any analysis of the words ought to leave a skeezy taste in your mouth.

However, what really gets me is that this is a Goffin and K..., thank goodness, not King but a Goffin and Keeler song. Gerry Goffin is a lyricist and so he is responsible for these words and those of "He Hit Me (and It Felt Like a Kiss)". I understand the background to "He Hit Me" but to translate the complexity of a troubled relationship into a three minute pop song is sometimes beyond the scope of talented wordsmiths like Goffin. I do rather wish he hadn't bothered trying.

Anyhow, Keeler co-wrote the theme to the charming Bewitched starring the equally charming Elizabeth Montgomery.

PS On the other hand:

I can recall the time
When I wasn't ashamed
To reach out to a friend
And now I think I've got
A lot more than
A skipping rope to lend
