What do you want to be when I grow up
A teacher a nurse or a bum
I don't need you to judge what I did
Stop treating me like a kid
If I wanna change my mind with out asking you
If I wanna take my time than I'm going to

'Cause I'm a big girl
I'm a very good girl
Yes I'm a big girl
And you don't have to worry 'bout me this time
Just trust me I'll be fine

And hey yeah
Do you ever think of letting go
And hey yeah
Before I lose my mind

Everything I want to do you say no
When I ask you why, 'cause I told you so
If I wanna tie my shoes without help from you
Guess no one ever sheltered you

And hey yeah
What ya gonna do when I'm not around
And hey yeah
You can't me the clock unwind
I keep telling you

I'm a big girl
I'm a very good girl
Yeah I'm a big girl
And you don't have to worry 'bout me this time

Just trust me I'll be fine
And hey yeah
Do you ever think of letting go
And hey yeah
Before I lose my mind

I'm a big girl
And I'm not your little girl
Yeah I'm a big girl
And you don't have to worry about me this time
'Cause I'll be fine

I'm a big girl
I'm a very good girl
Yeah I'm a big girl
And you don't have to worry 'bout me this time

Just trust me I'll be fine
And hey yeah
Do you ever think of letting go
And hey yeah
Before I lose my mind

    General Commenti love the line "Everything I want to do you say no
    When I ask you why, 'cause I told you so "
    i dunno i always kinda liked this song its sarcastically funny. Telling your parents to f*ck off before they drive you crazy.

    General CommentThe lyrics are kinda cheesy and put me off, but she's got a good voice and the actual song is good, if the lyrics were a little less angsty and whiny then it'd be a bloody good song.

    General CommentI love the line "Do you ever think of letting go?"
    This song represents independence for teens or just about anybody. You're grown up and you're going to make your own decisions soon and learn from mistakes.

    "Big Girl" will always be one of my favorite songs! It's what made me become the Angela Ammons fan I am today!
