Readymade – When I Grow Up lyrics

When I grow up
When I was three years oldi got up early once a week and stood outside in the coldwhen people would come up to meand asked what do you wanna bethere wasn't any doubt in my mindwhen I grow up, when I grow upi'm gonna drive a garbage-truck
Ok, it's not the most glamorous job in the worldyou drive around from street to streetand pick up other people's dirtbut one time when he came to our househe looked at me and smiledoh man, garbage-truck driver won't you take me for a ridewhen I grow up, when I grow upi'm gonna drive a garbage-truck
I never wanted to be a doctori never wanted to practice lawi never wanted to work in a harber shopthe only thing I wanted growing upwas to drive a garbage-truck
