You would think
That I could find
A simple song,
A photograph of mine
To show this public eye,
What I have to offer
I may not have a PHD,
Or speak
In eloquent philosophy!
I'm nothing more
Than simply me you see!

CHORUS (*1):
What I am trying to say
I'm just a babe
In so many ways!

I'm still growing,
Still stretchin'
Still breaking
In these new shoes
Looking for a way
To make a mark of my own
I'm just a spring chick,
Wet behind the ears
It's a part of life
So there's no need to fear
These growing pains
That I'm going through

I don't regret,
I'm not ashamed
That I haven't yet begun
To speaketh ways...
(As the wisest of men),
Oh perhaps some day
But for now I'm grateful
To be a part
Of the family tree,
While The Man upstairs
Does His work on me
It's a job that may
Take eternity to complete

CHORUS (*2):
Just when I've learned
All I can,
Those growing
Pains up
And kick on in again!

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
Time after time,
One more time and again,
Will it ever end?
It's the lessons
In our lives
That make us wise
But young or old
I am told it's the same
Oh, these growing pains
Never go away,
So I'll just
Keep on trying

Music break

CHORUS (*1)

CHORUS

Oh, baby don't worry
About a thang!
