I Wish I Was a Grown Up Man


I wish I was a grown up man,
And then I'd get a chance,
To wear those great high collars,
Stiff shirts, and nice long pants.

I wish I was a grown up man,
Not too big and fat,
But just the size to look nice
In a beaver hat.

I'd wear the nicest vest and gloves,
And patent leather shoes,
And all the girls would fall in love,
And I'd flirt with whom I choose.

I wish I was a grown up man,
I'd try the girls to please,
I'd wear a long jimswinger coat,
Just below my knees.

I'd wear eye-glasses, too,
And wouldn't I look good?
I'd be the swellest dude
In this neighborhood.

Some day I'll be a man,
And have everything I say,
And give my heart to some nice girl,
And then I'd go away.
