When we grow up, will I be pretty?

Will you be big and strong?

Will I wear dresses that show off my knees?

Will you wear trousers twice as long?

Well, I don't care if I'm pretty at all.

And I don't care if you never get tall.

I like what I look like, and you're nice small.

We don't have to change at all.


Hey!

When we grow up, will I be a lady?

Will you be an engineer?

Will I have to wear things like perfume and gloves?

I can still pull the whistle while you steer.

Well, I don't care if I'm pretty at all.

And I don't care if you never get tall.

I like what I look like, and you're nice small.

We don't have to change at all.


When I grow up, I'm gonna be happy and do what I like to do,

Like making noise and making faces and making friends like you.

And when we grow up, do you think we'll see

That I'm still like you and you're still like me?

I might be pretty; you might grow tall.

But we don't have to change at all.


Spoken: I don't want to change, see, 'cause I still want to be your friend, forever and ever and ever and ever and ever.
