Beach Boys – When I Grow Up To Be A Man lyrics

When I grow up to be a man
Will I dig the same things that turn me on as a kid?
Will I look back and say that I wish I hadn't done what I did?
Will I joke around and still dig those sounds
When I grow up to be a man?

Will I look for the same things in a woman that I dig in a girl?
(Fourteen fifteen)
Will I settle down fast or will I first wanna travel the world?
(Sixteen seventeen)
Now I'm young and free, but how will it be
When I grow up to be a man?

Oooooo Ooooooo Oooooooo
Will my kids be proud or think their old man is really a square?
(Eighteen nineteen)
When they're out having fun yeah, will I still wanna have my share?
(Twenty twenty-one)
Will I love my wife for the rest of my life
When I grow up to be a man?

What will I be when I grow up to be a man?
(Twenty-two twenty-three)
Won't last forever
(Twenty-four twenty-five)
It's kind of sad
(Twenty-six twenty-seven)
Won't last forever
(Twenty-eight twenty-nine)
It's kind of sad
(Thirty thirty-one)
Won't last forever
