Artist: Mayday Parade
Album: Punk Goes Pop 
Year: 2009                     



Verse 1:

              C#m
Boys call you sexy
And you don't care what they say
See everytime you turn around
They're screaming your name...
Now I've got a confession 
When I was young, I wanted attention 
A
 And I promised myself that I'd do anything 
C#m
 Anything at all for them to notice me

Pre Chorus:

C#m
 But I ain't complaining We all wanna be famous
So go ahead and say What you wanna say
A
You don't know what it's like to be nameless
Want them to know what your name is
       C#m              A                B
'Cause see, when I was younger, I would say

Chorus:

           C#m
When I grow up, I wanna be famous
              A                   Abm 
I wanna be a star, I wanna be in movies
            E
When I grow up, I wanna see the world
            B
Drive nice cars, I wanna have groupies
           C#m
When I grow up, be on TV
            A           Abm
People know me, be on magazines
            E
When I grow up, fresh and clean
            B                            
Number one boy when I step out on the scene

Post Chorus:

   C#m               B                   A         Abm
Be careful what you wish for 'Cause you just might get it
    C#m
You just might get it You just might get it
C#m               B                   A         Abm
Be careful what you wish for 'Cause you just might get it
    C#m
You just might get it You just might get it

Verse 2:

C#m
 They used to tell me I was silly
Until I popped up on the TV
A
 I always wanted to be a superstar
C#m
 Who knew singing songs would get me this far?

Pre Chorus:

C#m
 But I ain't complaining We all wanna be famous
So go ahead and say What you wanna say
A
You don't know what it's like to be nameless
Want them to know what your name is
       C#m              A                B
'Cause see, when I was younger, I would say


Chorus:

 C#m
When I grow up, I wanna be famous
              A                   Abm 
I wanna be a star, I wanna be in movies
            E
When I grow up, I wanna see the world
            B
Drive nice cars, I wanna have groupies
           C#m
When I grow up, be on TV
            A           Abm
People know me, be on magazines
            E
When I grow up, fresh and clean
            B                            
Number one boy when I step out on the scene

Post Chorus:

C#m               B                   A         Abm
Be careful what you wish for 'Cause you just might get it
    C#m
You just might get it You just might get it
C#m               B                   A         Abm
Be careful what you wish for 'Cause you just might get it
    C#m
You just might get it You just might get it

Bridge:

             C#m                    B        
I see them staring at me Oh, I'm a trendsetter
              C#m
Yes, this is true, 'cause what I do
           B                     A
No one can do it better You can talk about me
              B                   Ab
'Cause I'm a hot topic I see you watching me
                   B              Cm
Watching me And I know you want it ----
