"When I Grow Up (To Be A Man)" as written by Brian Douglas Wilson and Mike E. Love....
When I grow up to be a man
Will I dig the same things that turn me on as a kid?
Will I look back and say that I wish I hadn't done what I did?
Will I joke around and still dig those sounds

When I grow up to be a man?
Will I look for the same things in a woman that I dig in a girl?

(fourteen fifteen)
Will I settle down fast or will I first want to travel the world?

(sixteen seventeen)
Now I'm young and free, but how will it be
When I grow up to be a man?

Will my kids be proud or think their old man is really a square?
(eighteen nineteen)
When they're out having fun yeah, will I still want to have my share?

(twenty twenty-one)
Will I love my wife for the rest of my life
When I grow up to be a man?
What will I be when I grow up to be a man?

(twenty-two twenty-three)
Won't last forever

(twenty-four twenty-five)
It's kind of sad

(twenty-six twenty-seven)
Won't last forever

(twenty-eight twenty-nine)
It's kind of sad

(thirty thirty-one)
Won't last forever
(thirty-two .
