The Pussycat Dolls – When I Grow Up lyrics

Boys call you s***
And you don't care what they say
See every time you turn around
They screaming your name

Boys call you s***
And you don't care what they say
See every time you turn around
They screaming your name

Now I've got a confession
When I was young I wanted attention
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 its like to be nameless
Want them to know what your name is
Cuz 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 chick
When I step out on the scene

Be careful what you wish for
Cuz you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it

Be careful what you wish for
Cuz 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 its like to be nameless
Want them to know what your name is
Cuz 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 chick
When I step out on the scene

Be careful what you wish for
Cuz you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it

Be careful what you wish for
Cuz you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it

I see them staring at me
Ooh I'm a trendsetter
Yes this is true cuz what I do
No one can do it better

You can talk about me
Cuz I'm a hot topic
I see you watching me watching me
And I know you want it, oh

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 chick
When I step out on the scene

Be careful what you wish for
Cuz you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it

Be careful what you wish for
Cuz you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get 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 chick
When I step out on the scene

Be careful what you wish for
Cuz you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it

Be careful what you wish for
Cuz you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it

    Ahh. Dunno what 2 say bout those girls. I like them b4 this. But nowadays. I'm juz not really into them. They should not be that s*** enough 2 attract listeners or fans!~plus, it seems like nicole is the only one who sings(mostly). Dat would be unfair to all the other girls who had joined the group way earlier than nicole is!~lol.
    Not being offensive. I'm juz expressing my thought. That's all. =)

    We agree that although this song is catchy, we disagree with the vulgar, highly sexual line "I wanna have boobies." This is unrealistic of a child's wishes for the future; their main aim is obviously to become highly obese and recruit in our hefty army, full of fatties. We will then take over the world. Those interested, please do not hesitate to contact us.
    We would be grateful if you weigh yourself prior to the appointment in order to save time at the recruitment office. Thank you.
    Yours evily, the Sauceror and the French Frier.

Um women I feel sorry for you and you should be ashamed.

    I totally agree with Abigail27. Hey Abigail27, did you know that my name is Abigail, 2! Anyways, when I grow up I do want to be famous and a star! I want to be a Pussycat Doll! My friend likes this song almost more than I do and she probably agrees with me that she wants to be famous and a star. We would make a good team for the next generation of the Pussycat Dolls! Just so you know, I'm not a pretty as the Pussycat Dolls- yet. I'm only 11 and in 5th grade.
