( Ria and Teerath)

When I grow up
I will be tall enough to reach the branches
that I need to reach to climb the trees
you get to climb when you're grown up.

(Ria and Teerath)

And when I grow up
I will be smart enough to answer all
the questions that you need to know
the answers to before you're grown up.

(Me and Taya)

And when I grow up
I will eat sweets every day
on the way to work and I
will go to bed late every night!

(Me and Taya)

And I will wake up
when the sun comes up and I
will watch cartoons until my eyes go square
and I won't care 'cause I'll be all grown up!

(ALL)

When I grow up!

When I grow up, when I grow up
(When I grow up)
I will be strong enough to carry all
the heavy things you have to haul
around with you when you're a grown-up!

And when I grow up, when I grow up
(When I grow up)
I will be brave enough to fight the creatures
that you have to fight beneath the bed
each night to be a grown-up!

And when I grow up
(When I grow up)
I will have treats every day.
And I'll play with things that Mums pretends
that Mum's doon't think are fun.

And I will wake up
when the sun comes up and I
will spend all day just lying in the sun
and I won't burn 'cause I'll be all grown-up!

When I grow up!

And when I grow up, when I grow up
I will be brave enough to fight the creatures
that you have to fight beneath the bed
each night to be a grown-up!

(Miss Honey)

(When I grow up)

(Matilda)

Just because you find that life's not fair, it
doesn't mean that you just have to grin and bear it.
If you always take it on the chin and wear it
nothing will change!

(Miss Honey)
When I grow up. I will be brave enough to fight the creatures that I need to fight beneath the bed each night to be a grownup

When I grow up

(Matilda)

Just because I find my self in this story,
It doesn't mean that everything is written for me.
If I think the ending is fixed already,
I might as well be saying
I think that it's OK!
And that's not right!.
