Someday When I Grow Up

Someday - when I grow up, I'll find somebody like you

Somebody so pretty, every head'll turn when we come into view.

One day - she's gonna show up, and love me right from the start

One way – she won’t be like you, she won't break my heart

 

Someday - when I grow up I'll find somebody to love

Somebody that lets me know it's only me she's thinking of

One day – she's gonna show up, and I'll love her with all my heart

One way – she’s gonna know it, I'll promise we never part

 

  Someday - I'll grow up, I hope the day comes soon

  Someday - she’ll show up, and I'll forget about you 

  I'll forget about you 

 

Someday - when I grow up, gonna to have a lover so true

Somebody who laughs out loud at all the stupid things I do

Someone - who forgives me for being a first-class fool

Someday - I'll fall in love again the way that I fell for you

 

  Someday - I'll grow up, I hope the day comes soon

  One day - she’ll show up, and I'll forget about you 

  One day - she’ll show up, and I'll forget about you 

  I'll forget about you 

  I'll forget about you 

Just  when I think I have this "adult" thing worked out, I remember the plaque on my kitchen wall:

You're only young once, but you can be immature forever.

Sigh.
