Act My Age is the sixteenth track from One Direction's album Four.

Critical ReceptionEdit

WKCO stated: "This song is nothing short of a travesty. It starts off with an Irish folk melody, then is picked up by punky, heavy drums, then transitions into a Randy Newman inspired melody for the verses. The lyrics are abhorrent, declaring, “When I’m fat and old/And my kids think I’m a joke…I won’t act my age.” The second verse is joined by some old time American piano, which quickly fades, never to return, and the bridge includes some odd and short-lived happy-go-lucky whistling."

LyricsEdit

[Niall]
When I'm fat and old and my kids think I'm a joke
'Cause I move a little slow when I dance

[Liam]
I can count on you after all that we've been through
'Cause I know that you'll always understand

[All]
I won't act my age, no, I won't act my age
No, I'll still feel the same around you
Hey!

[Louis]
When I'm fat and old and my kids think I'm a joke
'Cause the stories that I told, I tell again and again

[Zayn]
I can count on you after all we got up to
'Cause I know that you truly understand

[All]
I won't act my age, no, I won't act my age
No, I'll still feel the same around you
I won't act my age, no, I won't act my age
No, I'll still feel the same and you will, too
Hey!

[Harry]
When I can hardly walk and my hair is falling out
We'll still stay up 'til morning
We'll throw the after-party, oh, yeah, oh, yeah

[All]
I won't act my age, no, I won't act my age
No, I'll still feel the same around you
I won't act my age, no, I won't act my age
No, I'll still feel the same and you will, too
Hey!
