When I Grow Up

	  		


F                 C 
When I grow up 
           Bb 
I will be tall enough to reach the branches 
Bbm                                F 
That I need to reach to climb the trees 
            C                      Bb 
You get to climb when you're grown up 

F                   C 
And when I grow up 
            Bb          
I will be smart enough to answer all 
      Bbm                
The questions that you need to know 
     F         C                   Bb 
The answers to before you're grown up 

Bbsus2 
And when I grow up 
       F 
I will eat sweets every day 
       Gm    
On the way to work and I will 
      F 
Go to bed late every night 
Bbsus2 
And I will wake up 
         F 
When the sun comes up and I 
           Gm 
Will watch cartoons until my eyes go square 
    Edim               C or Bbm           C7 Bb    
And I won't care 'cause I'll be all grown up 
            F 
When I grow up 

F                           C 
When I grow up (when I grow up, when I grow up) 
          Bb 
I will be strong enough to carry all 
     Bbm 
The heavy things you have to haul 
F                    C              Bb 
Around with you when you're a grown up 

F                           C 
When I grow up (when I grow up, when I grow up) 
           Bb             
I will be brave enough to fight the creatures 
Bbm                                 F 
That you have to fight beneath the bed 
              C          Bb 
Each night to be a grown up 

Bsus2 
And when I grow up 
        F               
I will have treats every day 
         Gm 
And I'll play with things that mum pretends 
      F 
That mums don't think are fun 
Bbsus2 
And I will wake up 
          F 
When the sun comes up and I 
               Gm    
Will spend all day just lying in the sun 
    Edim               C or Bbm         C7 Bb    
And I won't burn 'cause I'll be all grown up 
           F 
When I grow up 

F    C    Bb    Bbm    F C Bb 

(Miss Honey:) 
F              C 
When I grow up 
           Bb             
I will be brave enough to fight the creatures 
Bbm                                 F 
That you have to fight beneath the bed 
              C          Bb 
Each night to be a grown up 

When I grow up 

(Matilda) 
Bbsus2 
Just because you find that life's not fair it 
F 
Doesn't mean that you just have to grin and bear it 
Gm 
If you always take it on the chin and wear it 
Bb 
Nothing will change 

(When I grow up) 

Bbsus2 
Just because you find yourself in this story 
    F 
It doesn't mean that everything is written for me 
Gm 
If I think the ending is fixed already 
Bbdim                           
I might as well be saying I think that it's OK
