You know tonight, I am feeling a little out control
Is this me, you wanna get crazy, because I don't give a...
Boys call you sexy (What's up, sesy)
And you don't care what they say
See, everytime you turn around
They scream your name
(2x)
Now I've got a confession
When I was young I wanted attention
And I promised myself that I'd do anything
Anything at all for them to notice me

But I ain't complaining
We all wanna be famous
So go ahead and say what you wanna say
You know what it's like to be nameless
Want them to know what your name is
'Cause see when I was younger I would say

Chorus
When I grow up
I wanna be famous
I wanna be a star
I wanna be in movies

When I grow up
I wanna see the world
Drive nice cars
I wanna have groupies

When I grow up
Be on TV
People know me
Be on magazines

When I grow up
Fresh and clean
Number one chick when I step out on the scene

Be careful what you wish for 'cause you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it
(2x)
I see them staring at me
Oh I'm a trend setter
Yes this is true 'cause what I do, no one can do it better
You can talk about me
'Cause I'm a hot topic
I see you watching me, watching me, and I know you want it
1ST VERSE
I'm out of character, I'm in rare form
And if you really knew me, you'd know it's not the norm

B SECTION:
Cause I'm doing things that I normally won't do
The old me's gone I feel brand new
And if you don't like it fudge you
The music's on and I'm dancing
I'm normally in the corner just standing
I'm feeling unusual
I don't care cause this is my night

HOOK (x2):
I'm not myself tonight
Tonight I'm not the same girl same girl

BRIDGE:
In the morning, when I wake up
I'll go back to the girl I used to be
But baby not tonight
When I grow up
I wanna be famous
I wanna be a star
I wanna be in movies
But baby not tonight
When I grow up
I wanna be famous
I wanna be a star
I wanna be in movies
Be careful what you wish for 'cause you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it
(2x)

Chorus
When I grow up
I wanna be famous
I wanna be a star
I wanna be in movies

Be careful what you wish for 'cause you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it
I'm not myself tonight
Tonight I'm not the same girl same girl
Yah that feels good, I needed that
Get crazy, let's go, that's right
Come on, give it to me now, don't stop
