When I Grow Up

Songtexte

WHEN I GROW UP

when i was three years old
i got up early once a week and stood outside in the cold
when people would come up to me
and asked what do you wanna be
there wasn't any doubt in my mind
when i grow up, when i grow up
i'm gonna drive a garbage-truck

ok, it's not the most glamorous job in the world
you drive around from street to street
and pick up other people's dirt
but one time when he came to our house
he looked at me and smiled
oh man, garbage-truck driver won't you take me for a ride
when i grow up, when i grow up
i'm gonna drive a garbage-truck

i never wanted to be a doctor
i never wanted to practice law
i never wanted to work in a barber shop
the only thing i wanted growing up
was to drive a garbage-truck

ALBUQUERQUE

forget the times, when we played outside the schoolyard,
with no solutions for the task
let's get lost, let us stroll around
left behind or right in front

i try to see, the best in everything that happens
optimistic or just naive, you decide
keep the price tag, still attached to your forehead
a different opinion from the crooked minds

this time it's just you and me
grab your grooveboots and follow me
plug it in, put it on and take it off
it will only last for an eternity

i have to tear myself away from the oblivion
start out sober and relaxed
during the off days, try to find the essence
then push reset and start all over again

COUNTRY TRUCK

when i was three years old
i got up early once a week and stood outside in the cold
when people would come up to me
and asked what do you wanna be
there wasn't any doubt in my mind
when i grow up, when i grow up
i'm gonna drive a garbage-truck

ok, it's not the most glamorous job in the world
you drive around from street to street
and pick up other people's dirt
but one time when he came to our farm
he looked at me and smiled
oh man, garbage-truck driver won't you take me for a ride
when i grow up, when i grow up
i'm gonna drive a garbage-truck

i never wanted to be a doctor
i never wanted to practice law
i never wanted to work in a barber shop
the only thing i wanted growing up
was to drive a garbage-truck
