When you're 4 or 5 years old
It's really hard to make up your mind
What you want to be when you grow up
After all you do have a lot of choices

I might drive a truck, I might drive a train
I might sail a boat or fly an airplane
Might take a rocket ship to the moon
I'm growin' pretty fast so it might be soon

When I get big, when I get big
That's what I'm gonna do when I get big

Someday I'll leave mom and dad all alone
Make a lot of money then come back home
I'll buy everybody everything they like
I'll even buy myself a brand new bike

When I get big, when I get big
That's what I'm gonna do when I get big

I might be president and stop all the wars
And make people happy wherever they are
Protect all the animals, the dolphins and the whales
If people try to hurt 'em, I'll put 'em in jail

When I get big, when I get big
That's what I'm gonna do when I get big

When I get big, when I get big
That's what I'm gonna do when I get big
When I get big, when I get big
That's what I'm gonna do when I get big
