when i grow up lyrics – mayday parade

(p*ssycat dolls cover)

boys call you s*xy (what’s up, s*xy)
and you don’t care what they say
see, every time you turn around
they scream 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 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 homey 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 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 homey 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 homey 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
