Tom Waits - I Don't Wanna Grow Up

Tom Waits - I Don't Wanna Grow Up
My favourite Tom Waits era was his Island years which began with Swordfishtrombones in 1983.  In 1992, his Island years gave us "I Don't Wanna Grow Up", a song you likely know best as a Ramones tune.

Like most of Waits' best songs, the cover gained more prominence than the original.  I'll take the crunchy, gruff and rough original, thank you very much.
