When I Grow Up
Song About Different Occupations - Lyrics and Sound Clip
Sam Jones

This song is available on Sam Jones' Puppy Dog Blues.


When I grow up...
I might be an astronaut who flies through space
And takes a trip to Mars
Or I might win in Indianapolis in my racing car
I could be an astronomer who studies all the stars
Or maybe a pro golfer who shoots birdies and pars

Oh when I grow up I just don’t know what I want to be
All I know is that all my choices sound so fun to me
Oh I can’t wait until the day when I turn 23
When I grow up I just don’t know what I want to be

I could be a magician who does lots of magic spells
I’d like to be a fireman
Come on boys ring that bell
I might be the world’s richest man
You never can tell
I’ll find a cure for cancer and I’ll make everyone well


I’ll write a book like Charlotte’s Web about a perfect pig
I’ll be an archaeologist great big holes I’ll dig
Maybe I’ll sing rock and roll and have a nightly gig
But all I really want to be when I grow up is BIG!

Repeat Chorus twice to end
