Boys call you sexy
And you don't care what they say
See every time you turn around They screaming your name

Boys call you sexy
And you don't care what they say
See every time you turn around They screaming your name

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 don't know what its like to be nameless Want them to know what your name is
'Cause see when I was younger I would say

When I grow up
I wanna be famous I wanna be a star
I wanna be in movies 
When I grow up
I wanna see the world Drive nice cars
I wanna have groupies 
When I grow up
Be on TV People know me
Be on magazines 
When I grow up Fresh and clean Number one chick When I step out on the scene 
Be careful what you wish for
Cuz you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it

Be careful what you wish for
'Cause you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it

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 don't know what its like to be nameless Want them to know what your name is
'Cause see when I was younger I would say

When I grow up
I wanna be famous I wanna be a star
I wanna be in movies 
When I grow up
I wanna see the world Drive nice cars
I wanna have groupies 
When I grow up
Be on TV People know me
Be on magazines 
When I grow 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

Be careful what you wish for
'Cause you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it

I see them staring at me
Ooh I'm a trendsetter 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, oh

When I grow up
I wanna be famous I wanna be a star
I wanna be in movies 
When I grow up
I wanna see the world Drive nice cars
I wanna have groupies 
When I grow up
Be on TV People know me
Be on magazines 
When I grow 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

Be careful what you wish for
'Cause you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it

When I grow up
I wanna be famous I wanna be a star
I wanna be in movies 
When I grow up
I wanna see the world Drive nice cars
I wanna have groupies 
When I grow up
Be on TV People know me
Be on magazines 
When I grow 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

Be careful what you wish for
'Cause you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it
