"See You on the Moon!" as written by and Tift Merritt....
When I grow up maybe I'll be a veterinarian
I'll take care of little animals
Like ponies and parakeets
And I'll give them food to eat
And the puppies go "yip, yip, yip"
And the kitties go "meow, meow, meow"
And thank you veterinarian

Maybe I'll be an astronaut and work for NASA
Maybe I'll see you on the moon
I'll see you on the moon
I'll see you on the moon

There's lots of things that you can be
When you grow up, just wait and see

When I grow up maybe I'll be a farmer
Grow all kinds of food to eat
Like shiny apples red or green
Or fields of corn for dinnertime
I'll drive my tractor in the sun
While the chickens go "bock, bock, bock"
And the cows go "moo, moo, moo"
And thank you farmer

Maybe I'll be an astronaut and work for NASA
Maybe I'll see you on the moon
I'll see you on the moon
I'll see you on the moon

When I grow up maybe I'll be a carpenter
And build a big, long house
For people and their families
And I'll build it out of wood and bricks
With a porch where people can sit
And the hammers go "knock, knock, knock"
And the saws go "chop, chop, chop"
And thank you carpenter

There's lots of things that you can be
We are free to be you and me

When I grow up maybe I'll be a singer in a band
And I'll drive all across the land
With my friends all in the van
And I'll sing into a microphone
But when it's over, I'll come home
While the people go "clap, clap, clap"
And the drummer goes "tap, tap, tap"
And thank you singer

Maybe I'll be an astronaut and work for NASA
Maybe I'll see you on the moon
I'll see you on the moon
I'll see you on the moon

There's lots of things that you can be
When you grow up just wait and see
There's lots of things that we can be
When we grow up, just wait and see, see

    General CommentThis song deffinetly does come from the child point of view, a dreamer, free to believe anything is possible.

    General CommentI picture this song as the narrarator being a little kid, with the whole "you can be whatever you want to be" thing fresh in his mind.


    I'll see you on the moon.
