Through the Years

When I grow up,

I’m gonna be a princess.

I’m gonna buy a castleย 

and live happily ever after…

Well, maybe not. But when I grow up,

I’m gonna have lots of money.

I’m gonna buy a mansion

and live happily ever after.

When I grow up,

I’m gonna solve the world.

I’m gonna travel its four corners

and leave a greater mark than they…

Well, maybe not. But when I grow up,

I’m gonna make a difference.

I’m gonna do things right

and travel the world on a shoestring.

When I grow up,

I’m gonna buy me a house.

I’m gonna invest in my future

and travel to Paris someday…

Well, maybe not. But when I grow up,

I’m gonna invest in their future.

I’m gonna raise them to care

and not make the same mistakes.

When I grow up,

I’m gonna prepare for tomorrow.

I’m gonna take another breath

and accept my mistakes…Mostly.

When I grow up,

I’m gonna count my blessings.

I’m gonna welcome today –

For it’s all we ever have.
