“I Don’t Want to Grow Up” – Tom Waits / The Ramones

Battling it out are Tom Waits and the Ramones, doing separate versions of Waits’ “I Don’t Want to Grow Up.”  First up is Waits’ folk-from-hell original single from his classic 1992 album “Bone Machine.”  After that, you can watch the Ramones do their own take, which achieved greater commercial success in 1996 (from their last studio album “Adios Amigos”).  I don’t know folks … they’re both pretty great.
