Ah, the idea of eternal youth! To drink from the Grail Cup or the fountain of youth! To be Peter Pan! To be, as Rod Stewart sings, forever young!

There's a very important reason not to age: If you grew up, you couldn't be a Toys "R" Us kid!

Like the Big Red jingle, this is one of those songs that sticks with you in its entirety -- not just the hook but the whole kit and caboodle. Specifically, it goes like this: "I don't wanna grow up, I'm a Toys "R" Us kid. There's a million toys at Toys "R" Us that I can play with! More bikes, more trains, more video games, it's the biggest toy store there is. I don't wanna grow up 'cause maybe if I did, I couldn't be a Toys "R" Us kid." Now try getting that one out of your head!
