Where have I been? What should I be looking for?
What am I gonna be when I come of age
Will I be strong, yeah, yeah? Will I be a mighty man?
Climb mountains if I can when I come of age

Hey y'all I think I'll be a movie star or travel to some distant star
Yeah, that's it I'm gonna be an astronaut and rock it to the moon
And then I'll be the captain of a giant ship
I'm gonna take a long, long trip to a far off land when I become a man

And what about love? Will you still be in love with me?
I sure hope you will be when I come of age
And will you be true? Will you still want to marry me?
I guess I have to wait and see when I come of age

My folks say I'm too young for love they don't seem to understand
That what I feel is love for somebody a feeling I've understand
And while I've got this feeling it's you, girl, you're so grand
And I'll love you girl just as strong when I become a man

Wait, be patient honey you've got to believe in me
Wait, wait for me baby it'll be just you and me
(We're gonna be so happy)
Well do, do all the things, we couldn't do before

When, when I come of age
(We're gonna be so happy)
When, when I come of age, yeah
When, when I come of age, yeah
(We're gonna be so happy)

Ooh, when, when I come of age, yeah
When, when I come of age
(We're gonna be so happy)
When, when I come of age, yeah
When, when I come of age, ooh
(We're gonna be so happy)
When, when I come of age, yeah
