F                 C
When I grow up,

I will be tall enough to reach the branches

Bbm
That I need to reach to climb

     F                 C                      Bb
The tress 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/A                        Gm
I will eat sweets every day on the way to work

                  F
And I will go to bed late every night.

Bbsus2
And I will wake up

         F/A
When the sun comes up

                   Gm
And I will watch cartoons until my eyes go square

    C                 Dbdim          
And I won't care cos I'll be all grown up,

Dm      C  Bb
When I grow up.



F                 C
When I grow up,

            Bb
I will be strong enough to carry all

      Bbm                          F
The heavy things you have to haul around with you

       C            Bb 
When you're a grown up.



F                      C
And when I grow up,

          Bb 
I will be brave enough to fight the creatures

Bbm                                F
That you have to fight beneath the bed each night

   C          Bb
To be a grown up.



Bbsus2
And when I grow up,

        F/A
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/A
When the sun comes up

                    Gm         
And I will spend all day just lying in the sun

    C               Dbdim
And I won't care cos I'll be all grown up,

Dm   C     Bb
When I grow up.

And when I grow up,

           Bb
I will be brave enough to fight the creatures

Bbm                              F
That you have to fight beneath the bed each night

    C         Bb
To be a grown up.
            
            Bbsus2
When I grow up...



(Bbsus2)                       
Just because you think that life's not fair, it

F/A
Doesn't meant that you just have to grin and bear it.

Gm7
If you always take it on the chin and wear it

F
Nothing will change.

Bbsus2
Just because I find myself in this story, it

F/A
Doesn't mean that everything is written for me,

Gm7
If I think the ending is fixed already

   C                        Dbdim
I might as well be saying I think that it's OK

     Dbdim/A      Dbdim        Dm
And    that's       not       right!

looks pretty good; only thing is that i don't know some of these chords, and if they were written in the way that the website recognizes them, it would make it a bit easier to play. I think you would write them like Bflat=Bb, Bflatmin=Bbm, Bflatsus2=Bbsus2, Dflatdim=Dbdim, Dflatdim/A=Dbdim/A. Even though the fingerings are up there, it would be easier for some people if the chords got fixed
