“When I Grow Up” Lyrics

I’d love to be a writer

Turn stories into books

 

Or maybe a dancer

turn music into moves

I’d love to be a pilot

And fly my friends across the world

 

I’d love to be an actor

Pretend to be somebody else

Or I could come up with medicines

Yeah I’d love to be a scientist

 

Maybe Chemist, maybe physicist.. or Both!

Just like Marie Curie

 

I’ll build bridges to bring people close

Just like an engineer does 

I’ll invent new things to light the world

Just like Thomas Edison

 

When I grow up, When I grow up

I wanna help build a better world

When I grow up, When I grow up

I wanna help build a better world

When I grow up, When I grow up

 

I could be a firefighter

And help to put out all the flames

Or I could be a botanist

Improve the crops that people eat

 

Or come up with new recipes

Like George Washington Carver did

Or I could build cars or even planes 

Just like Henry Ford did in his days

 

When I grow up, When I grow up

I wanna help build a better world

When I grow up, When I grow up

I wanna help build a better world
