Boys call you sexy (What's up, sexy)
And you don't care what they say
See, everytime you turn around
They scream your name
(2x)

Now I've got a confession
When I was young I wanted attention
And I promised myself that I'd do anything
Anything at all for them to notice me

But I ain't complaining
We all wanna be famous
So go ahead and say what you wanna say
You know what it's like to be nameless
Want them to know what your name is
'Cause see when I was younger I would say

Chorus
When I'm growing up
I wanna be famous
I wanna be a star
I wanna be in movies

When I'm growing up
I wanna see the world
Drive nice cars
I wanna have groupies

When I'm growing up
Be on TV
People know me
Be on magazines

When I'm growing up
Fresh and clean
Number one chick when I step out on the scene

Be careful what you wish for 'cause you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it
(2x)

They used to tell me I was silly
Until I popped up on the TV
I always wanted to be a superstar
And knew that singing songs would get me this far

But I ain't complaining
We all wanna be famous
So go ahead and say what you wanna say
You know what it's like to be nameless
Want them to know what your name is
'Cause see, when I was younger I would say

Chorus
When I'm growing up
I wanna be famous
I wanna be a star
I wanna be in movies

When I'm growing up
I wanna see the world
Drive nice cars
I wanna have groupies

When I'm growing up
Be on TV
People know me
Be on magazines

When I'm growing up
Fresh and clean
Number one chick when I step out on the scene

Be careful what you wish for 'cause you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it
(2x)

I see them staring at me
Oh I'm a trend setter
Yes this is true 'cause what I do, no one can do it better
You can talk about me
'Cause I'm a hot topic
I see you watching me, watching me, and I know you want it

Chorus
When I'm growing up
I wanna be famous
I wanna be a star
I wanna be in movies

Be careful what you wish for 'cause you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it
(2x)

Chorus
When I'm growing up
I wanna be famous
I wanna be a star
I wanna be in movies

Be careful what you wish for 'cause you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it
(2x)
