F                 C
When I grow up
           Bb
I will be tall enough to reach the branches
Bbm                                F
That I need to reach to climb the trees
            C                      Bb
You get to climb when you're grown up

F                   C
And when I grow up
            Bb         
I will be smart enough to answer all
      Bbm               
The questions that you need to know
     F         C                   Bb
The answers to before you're grown up

Bbsus2
And when I grow up
       F
I will eat sweets every day
       Gm   
On the way to work and I will
      F
Go to bed late every night
Bbsus2
And I will wake up
         F
When the sun comes up and I
           Gm
Will watch cartoons until my eyes go square
    Edim               C or Bbmdim           C7 Bb   
And I won't care 'cause I'll be all grown up
            F/Dm
When I grow up

F                           C
When I grow up (when I grow up, when I grow up)
          Bb
I will be strong enough to carry all
     Bbm
The heavy things you have to haul
F                    C              Bb
Around with you when you're a grown up

F                           C
When I grow up (when I grow up, when I grow up)
           Bb            
I will be brave enough to fight the creatures
Bbm                                 F
That you have to fight beneath the bed
              C          Bb
Each night to be a grown up

Bsus2
And when I grow up
        F              
I will have treats every day
         Gm
And I'll play with things that mum pretends
      F
That mums don't think are fun
Bbsus2
And I will wake up
          F
When the sun comes up and I
               Gm   
Will spend all day just lying in the sun
    Edim               C or Bbmdim         C7 Bb   
And I won't burn 'cause I'll be all grown up
           F/Dm
When I grow up

F    C    Bb    Bbm    F C Bb


[Miss Honey]

F              C
When I grow up
           Bb            
I will be brave enough to fight the creatures
Bbm                                 F
That you have to fight beneath the bed
              C          Bb
Each night to be a grown up

When I grow up


[Matilda]

Bbsus2
Just because you find that life's not fair it
F
Doesn't mean that you just have to grin and bear it
Gm
If you always take it on the chin and wear it
Bb
Nothing will change

(When I grow up)

Bbsus2
Just because you find yourself in this story
    F
It doesn't mean that everything is written for me
Gm
If I think the ending is fixed already
Bbdim                          
I might as well be saying I think that it's OK

I usually have to stick a capo on the first fret to get it to sound right, but it could just be the key I need it in to sing properly
