    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?
    (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?

    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?

    Won't last forever
    It's kind of sad
    Won't last forever
    It's kind of sad
