  • When I Grow Up to be a Man

    Lyrics by Brian Wilson

    Will I dig the same things that turn me on as a kid?

    Will I look back and say that I wish I hadn’t done what I did?
    Will I joke around and still dig those sounds
    When I grow up to be a man?

    Will I look for the same things in a woman that I dig in a girl?
    (fourteen fifteen)
    Will I settle down fast or will I first wanna travel the world?
    (sixteen seventeen)
    Now I’m young and free, but how will it be
    When I grow up to be a man?

    Oooooo Ooooooo Oooooooo
    Will my kids be proud or think their old man is really a square?
    (eighteen nineteen)
    When they’re out having fun yeah, will I still wanna have my share?
    (twenty twenty-one)
    Will I love my wife for the rest of my life
    When I grow up to be a man?

    What will I be when I grow up to be a man?
    (twenty-two twenty-three)
    Won’t last forever
    (twenty-four twenty-five)
    It’s kind of sad
    (twenty-six twenty-seven)
    Won’t last forever
    (twenty-eight twenty-nine)
    It’s kind of sad
    (thirty thirty-one)
    Won’t last forever
    (thirty-two …)
