Your life begins when teardrops start
A broken toy, a broken heart
All of these things are just a part of growing up

From kiddie cars to walking shoes
From lullabies to lonely blues
Somehow you never quite get used to growing up

Yeah, yeah, you're growing up
Yeah, yeah, you're growing up
It's good to know you're growing up

The wheel of fortune takes a spin
Sometimes you lose, sometimes you win
But you must play the game again
Drink another cup, you're growing up

Yeah, yeah, you're growing up
Yeah, yeah, you're growing up
It's good to know you're growing up

Hey, now little one, you're growing up
Hey, now little one, you're growing up
To be a man, to be a woman to understand
Takes a lot of growing, growing up

You'll live to learn, you'll learn to live
You'll give to love your love to give
And when you're wise enough
You'll know you're growing up
