(You’re not a kid anymore,
You’re not a kid anymore.)

When people ask of me,
“What would you like to be now that you’re not a kid anymore?”
(You’re not a kid anymore.)
I know just what to say,
I answer right away.
There’s just one thing I’ve been wishing for.

I wanna be Bobby’s girl,
I wanna be Bobby’s girl.
That’s the most important thing to me.
And if I was Bobby’s girl,
If I was Bobby’s girl.
What a faithful, thankful girl I’d be.

Each night I sit at home,
Hoping that he will phone.
But I know Bobby has someone else.
(You’re not a kid anymore.)
Still in my heart I pray,
There soon will come the day,
When I will have him all to myself.

I wanna be Bobby’s girl,
I wanna be Bobby’s girl.
That’s the most important thing to me.
And if I was Bobby’s girl,
If I was Bobby’s girl,
What a faithful, thankful girl I’d be.
What a faithful, thankful girl I’d be.
I wanna be Bobby’s girl,
I wanna be Bobby’s girl,
I wanna be Bobby’s girl. (Fade)
