Matilda – When I Grow Up lyrics

When I grow up, I will be tall enough to reach the branches that I need to
Reach to climb the trees you get to climb when you're grown up.
And when I grow up, I will be smart enough to answer all the questions that
You need to know the answers to before you're grown up.
And when I grow up, I will eat sweets everyday on the way to work and I
Will go to bed late every night.
And I will wake up when the sun comes up and I will watch cartoons until my
Eyes go square
and I won't care because I'll be all grown up.
When I grow up
When I grow up, when I grow up, when I grow up, I will be strong enough to
Carry all the heavy things you have to haul around when you a grown up.
And when I grow up, when I grow up, when I grow up, I will be brave enough
To fight the creatures that you have to fight beneath the bed each night to
Be a grown up.
And when I grow up, and when I grow up I will have treats everyday and I'll
Play with things that mum pretends that mums don't think are fun.
And I will wake up when the sun comes up and I will spend all day just
Lying in the sun, and I won't burn because I'll be all grown up.
When I grow up
When I grow up, I will be brave enough to fight the creatures that you have
To fight beneath the bed each night to be a grown up.
When I grow up
Just because you find that lifes not fair it doesn't mean you just have to
Grin and bear it
. If you always take it on the chin and bear it.
Just because I find myself in this story doesn't mean that everything is
Written for me if I think the ending is fixed already
. I might as well be
Saying I think that it's ok.
And that's not right
And if it's not right
You have to put it right.
