"When I Grow Up" from Matilda: The Musical
Words & Music by Tim Minchin

Intro: F


F                    C
  When I grow up,
           Bb
I will be tall enough to reach the branches
Bm                                  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
       Bm                                F
the questions that you need to know the answers to,
 C                  Bb    
before you're grown up.


Bb(add9)
     And when I grow up
       F/A
I will eat sweets ev'ry day
        Gm7
on the way to work
                 F
and I will go to bed late every night.


               Bb(add9)
And I will wake up,    And I will wake up
         F/A
when the sun comes up
                      Gm7
and I will watch cartoons

until my eyes go square
   C7(sus4)              A7/C#
and I won't care 'cause I'll be all grown up
Dm    Dm7/C   Bbmaj9         Bb(add9)
  when I grow up


F                              C      
  When I grow up  (When I grow up, when I grow up)
           Bbmaj7
I will be strong enough to carry all
    Gm7
the heavy things you have to haul
      F                 C          Bb(add9)
around with you when you're a grown up


F                              C      
  And when I grow up  (When I grow up, when I grow up)
          Bbmaj7  
I will be brave enough to fight the creatures
Gm7
that you have to fight beneath
       F             C/E    C    Bb(add9)
the bed each night to be a grown up


Bb(add9)
     And when I grow up
       F/A
I will have treats ev'ry day
         Gm7
And I'll play with things that mum pretends
      F
that mums don't think are fun


               Bb(add9)
And I will wake up,    And I will wake up
         F/A
when the sun comes up
                      Gm7
and I will spend all day

just lying in the sun
   C7(sus4)              A7/C#
and I won't burn 'cause I'll be all grown up
Dm    Dm7/C   Bbmaj9         Bb(add9)
  when I grow up

(Instrumental)
F    C    Bb    Gm7    F    C/E   C   Bb(add9)


                   Bbadd9
                  Even if you're little you can do a lot you
(And when I grow up)
F/A
mustn't let a little thing like little stop you
Gm7
if you sit around and let them get on top you
F
won't change a thing.


                   Bbadd9
                  Just because you find that life's not fair it
(And when I grow up)
F/A
doesn't mean that you just have to grin an bear it
Gm7
if you always take it on the chin and wear it
     C11         
you might as well be saying
     A7/C'
you think that it's okay


                Dm   Dm/C   Bbmaj7
And that's not right
                Dm   C/E    F
And if it's not right
            Dm       E7     A7
You have to put it right


     Gm7                  C
But nobody else is gonna put it right for me
Am7                       D7
nobody but me is gonna change my story 
Gm7     F/A  Gm7/Bb  G7/B   C7        N.C.    C  F    N.C.    F
Sometimes you have to be a little bit        naughty.
                                    (Maggots!)
