Where have I been?
What should I be looking for?
What am I gonna be ?
When I Come Of Age?
Will I be strong, yeah yeah?
(Will I be strong?)
Will I be a mighty man?
(Mighty man?)
Climb mountains if I can
When I Come Of Age?

Hey y’all I think I´ll be a movie star
Or travel to some distant star, yeah that´s it
I´m gonna be an astronaut
And rock it to the moon
And then, I´ll be the captain of a giant ship
I´m gonna take a long, long trip to far of land
When I become my man

And what about love?
(What about love?)
Do you still be in love with me?
I sure hope you will be
When I Come Of Age?
And will you be true?
(Will you be true?)
Will you still want to marry me?
I guess I have to wait and see
When I Come Of Age?

My folks say I´m too young for love
But they don´t see to understand
That what I feel is love for somebody
A feeling I understand
And Why? I´ve got that feeling
It´s you, girl you´re so grand
And I´ll love you just as strong
When I become my man

Wait, be patient honey
You’ve got to believe in me
Wait, wait for me baby
It´ll be just you and me
(We’re gonna be so happy)
We´ll do, do all the things
We couldn´t do before
When, When I Come Of Age?
(We´re gonna be so happy)
When, When I Come Of Age, yeah?
When, When I Come Of Age, yeah?
(We´re gonna be so happy)
Ooh, When, When I Come Of Age, yeah?
Oh, When, When I Come Of Age?
(We´re gonna be so happy)
When, When I Come Of Age, yeah?
When, When I Come Of Age?
(We´re gonna be so happy)
Oh, When, When I Come Of Age?

    General CommentI love this song. Im 22 now, but when I was 18 this was my anthem. I had just graduated from High School and was unsure about life and what direction I was headed towards. This song put me on track, and now I'm in my 4th year in college.
