Lyrics

Words and music by Michelle Malone and Kristian Bush

dishes piling up in the sink
and my bed hasnt been made in a week
Now i'm down to take out food and one cold beer

i work too much and i play to little
seems like my class is stuck in the middle
the telephone just keeps ringing but i'm not here

when i grow up, i’m gonna be
loving my life and living my dream
when i grow up, you’re gonna see
everybody wanna be just like me

i've got boxes all over the floor that i
moved in 2004 - still i
use one as a coffee table
and another one for my feet

I'm half slaker, half ocd, cause I
write songs while i watch tv, and I
binge watch 'till the sun comes back
cause orange is the brand new black

when i grow up, i’m gonna be
loving my life and living my dream
when i grow up, you’re gonna see
everybody wanna be just like me

time kept tickin like a second hand
when i was young i didn't understand
there's always an end to the endless summer
everybody says that I gotta grow up
i say no way, i've had enough
working my life away, all i wanna do is play

when i grow up, i’m gonna be
loving my life and living my dream
when i grow up, you’re gonna see
everybody wanna be just like me
