I can remember that when I was a little youth,
I wanted to fly around the world making a new life,
I never thought today I would be what I am.

(Yo) Wanted to be a fireman then I lost the desire man
The second I got old enough to buy myself a cider can,
(Yeah) I was a smart little kid, that sized a part of me since,
These days you can catch me sitting on a bench in the park drinking lager and crisps.

(CHORUS)
Back when I was younger, I wanted to be everything on the planet (on the, on the, on the planet)
Now that I am older, it seems the ambition has vanished.
(Uh) Yeah, when I was a youngster, when I was a,
When I was a youngster, youngster,
When I was a youngster.
Yeah, and now that I'm older, I wish I could of been everything that I wanted. (I'm on it)

I think that if I think back back
To the days when I thought that I didn't think that nothing that I thought would not be possible,
Tryna' figure that out (out),
But I didn't know how,
To settle for a desk drop bringing those pounds,
I wanted to live in those clouds,
These days I deliver no sounds.

I always thought of myself as a simple dreamer,
I never tried too hard but believed it,
Now all of a sudden it's gone my way.

Back when I was younger, I wanted to be everything on the planet (on the, on the, on the planet)
Now that I am older, it seems the ambition has vanished.
(Uh) Yeah, when I was a youngster, when I was a,
When I was a youngster, youngster,
When I was a youngster.
Yeah, and now that I'm older, I wish I could of been everything that I wanted (I'm on it)

Back when I was younger, I wanted to be everything on the planet (on the, on the, on the planet)
Now that I am older, it seems the ambition has vanished.
Yeah, when I was a youngster, when I was a,
When I was a youngster, youngster,
When I was a youngster.
Yeah, and now that I'm older, I wish I could of been everything that I wanted (I'm on it)

Back when I was younger, I wanted to be everything on the planet (on the, on the, on the planet)
Now that I am older, it seems the ambition has vanished.
Yeah, when I was a youngster, when I was a,
When I was a youngster, youngster,
When I was a youngster.
Yeah, and now that I'm older, I wish I could of been everything that I wanted (I'm on it, yeah)
