Get on the merry go round now
Jump off, don't wonder where or how
Whoo, life isn't how it was planned to be
So many wishes to release
Be disappointed, hard to please
Whoo, life isn't how it was planned to be

I wish I were an artist
then I could paint the world as I see it
I wish I were a dancer
then I guess the dress in the wardrobe would fit
I wish I were a pirate
looking for gold and adventures at sea
I wish I had witchcraft
casting spells on boys to make them love me

But I haven't got any ship I can get on
And I haven't got any boys to call me down

Get on the merry go round now
Jump off, don't wonder where or how
Whoo, life isn't how it was planned to be
So many wishes to release
Be disappointed, hard to please
Whoo, life isn't how it was planned to be

I wish I were a kitten
black and unknown I would seduce him
I wish I were more important
maybe I wouldn't end up losing him
I wish we were in springtime
you would be nine and I would be ten
I wish you kept your promise
by marrying when we are twenty-seven

The season's here but I'll never reach that age again
And you still look upon me as a friend
