“When I Grow Up (To Be A Man)”

when i grow up to be a man
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?
will i settle down fast or will i first wanna travel the world?
now i’m young and free, but how will it be
when i grow up to be a man?

will my kids be proud or think their old man is really a square?
when they’re out having fun yeah, will i still wanna have my share?
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?

won’t last forever
it’s kind of sad
won’t last forever
it’s kind of sad

– Brian Wilson
