Matilda – When I Grow Up lyrics

When I grow up (x3),
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 (x3),
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 (x2),
I will eat sweets every day,
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 'cause I'll be all grown up.
When I grow up...

Even if you're little you can do a lot, you
Mustn't let a little thing like 'little' stop you.
If you sit around and let them get on top, you
Won’t change a thing…
Just because you find that life's not fair, it
Doesn't mean that you just have to grin and bear it.
If you always take it on the chin and wear it,
You might as well be saying you think that it's OK.
And that's not right.
And if it's not right, you have to put it right.
But nobody else is gonna put it right for me.
Nobody but me is gonna change my story.
Sometimes you have to be a little bit (Trunchbull: "Maggots…") naughty
