When I Grow Up

written by: Knight, David O. / Conolly, Sentrell
Originally Performed by: Michelle Shocked


When I grow up I want to be an old woman
When I grow up I want to be an old woman
Oh, an old, an old, old, old, old, old woman
An old, an old, old, old, old old woman

Then I think I'm gonna find myself an old man
Then I think I'm gonna marry myself that old man
An old, an old, an old, an old, old, old, old man
An old, an old, an old, an old, old, old, old man

We're gonna have a hundred and twenty babies
A hundred and ten, and fifteen, twenty babies
That's right, I said a hundred and twenty babies
I said a hundred and twenty babies

We'll feed 'em on tiger's milk and green bananas
Mangoes and coconuts and watermelon
We're gonna feed 'em that watermelon when they starts yellin'

Here's what they'll yell

In the summer we'll sit in a field and watch the sun melt
In the winter we'll sit by a fire and watch the moon freeze
Me my old man and a hundred and twenty babies
Me my old man and a hundred and twenty babies

When I grow up I want to be an old woman
I won't grow up so I'm a very old woman

An old, an old, old, old, old old woman
An old, an old, old, old, old old woman
An old, an old, old, old, old old woman
An old, an old, old, old, old old woman
