When I Grow Up



When I grow up, Id like to be
A butterfly, a maple tree,
A movie star, a pirate: Smee,
When I grow up Id like to be.

When I grow up, Id like to drive
A limousine, a big bee hive,
A van of jazz stars born to jive,
When I grow up Id like to drive.

When I grow up, Id like to see
England, France, and Italy,
Commercials on my own TV,
When I grow up Id like to see.

When I grow up, Id like to own
My own sitcom, a fancy home,
A Persian rug, a telephone,
When I grow up Id like to own.

When I grow up, Id like to eat
Oreos, and Cream of Wheat,
Escargot, perhaps frog feet,
When I grow up Id like to eat.

When I grow up, Id like to know
How birds fly, and where they go.
What they mean by inc. and co.,
When I grow up Id like to know.

When I grow up, Id like to be
Whatever I think is right for me.
But now I think Ill climb a tree,
Cause Im not grown up yet...
tee-hee!
