  • Lyrics: Hey! What do you want to be when you grow up?When I grow up I want to be a kid again. Like me? Mm hmm. That would be so much fun, to laugh in the park and sing in the sun.Have you ever wanted to float on a cloud? As a matter of fact it's my favorite thing to do. Really? To fly up above in the air. I think that I would be scared way up there. This world is big and you are small, but singing helps us learn it all. Everytime I sing with you, you teach me things that are not true. Why are there so many languages?When I was your age there were only two. But I can't remember which ones. What if there were none? That'd be fun. Why does the sun look like an orange? Well I read in a book that on other worlds it's an apple. Or at least it said something about fruit. Mmm, fruit is so good, unless it's made out of plastic, or wood. This world is big and you are small, but singing helps us learn it all. Everytime we sing this song you teach me things that are not true. Where in the US constitution does is state that every American citizen is required to pay an income tax to the Federal Reserve?Hey! I'm the one asking the questions here!Oh... Sorry.What is love?Love is a tiny particle in the air. We breathe it in every day. And that is how it starts. It flows into our brains and our hearts. I love you, I love you too... hahahahaha
