Mayday Parade – When I Grow Up lyrics

Boys call you s*** (What's up s***!)
And you don't care what they say (Quit it!)
See every time you turn around they're screaming your name

Now I've got a confession
Ha ha ha ha
When I was young I wanted attention
Ha ha ha ha
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 don't 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

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 boy 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
Be careful what you wish for 'cause you just might get it
You just might get it, you just might get it

They used to tell me I was silly
Until I popped up on the tv
I always wanted to be a superstar
And knew that singing songs would get me this far

But I ain't complaining
We all wanna be famous
So go ahead and say what you wanna say
You don't 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

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 boy 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
Be careful what you wish for 'cause you just might get it
You just might get it, you just might get it

I see them staring at me
Oh I'm a trendsetter
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

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 boy 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
Be careful what you wish for 'cause you just might get it
You just might get it, you just might get it
