When I Grow Up
The Pussycat Dolls Lyrics


Boys call you sexy
And you don't care what they say
See every time you turn around
They screaming your name

Boys call you sexy
And you don't care what they say
See every time you turn around
They screaming your name

Now I've got a confession
When I was young I wanted attention
And I promised myself that I'd do anything
Anything at all for them to notice me

But I ain't complaining
We all wanna be famous
So go ahead and say what you wanna say

You don't know what its like to be nameless
Want them to know what your name is
'Cause see when I was younger I would say

When I grow up
I wanna be famous
I wanna be a star
I wanna be in movies

When I grow up
I wanna see the world
Drive nice cars
I wanna have groupies

When I grow up
Be on TV
People know me
Be on magazines

When I grow up
Fresh and clean
Number one chick
When I step out on the scene

Be careful what you wish for
'Cause you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it

Be careful what you wish for
'Cause you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it

They used to tell me I was silly
Until I popped up on the TV
I always wanted to be a superstar
And knew that singing songs would get me this far

But I ain't complaining
We all wanna be famous
So go ahead and say what you wanna say

You don't know what its like to be nameless
Want them to know what your name is
'Cause see when I was younger I would say

When I grow up
I wanna be famous
I wanna be a star
I wanna be in movies

When I grow up
I wanna see the world
Drive nice cars
I wanna have groupies

When I grow up
Be on TV
People know me
Be on magazines

When I grow up
Fresh and clean
Number one chick
When I step out on the scene

Be careful what you wish for
'Cause you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it

Be careful what you wish for
'Cause you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it

I see them staring at me
Ooh I'm a trendsetter
Yes this is true 'cause what I do
No one can do it better

You can talk about me
'Cause I'm a hot topic
I see you watching me watching me
And I know you want it, oh

When I grow up
I wanna be famous
I wanna be a star
I wanna be in movies

When I grow up
I wanna see the world
Drive nice cars
I wanna have groupies

When I grow up
Be on TV
People know me
Be on magazines

When I grow up
Fresh and clean
Number one chick
When I step out on the scene

Be careful what you wish for
'Cause you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it

Be careful what you wish for
'Cause you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it

When I grow up
I wanna be famous
I wanna be a star
I wanna be in movies

When I grow up
I wanna see the world
Drive nice cars
I wanna have groupies

When I grow up
Be on TV
People know me
Be on magazines

When I grow up
Fresh and clean
Number one chick
When I step out on the scene

Be careful what you wish for
'Cause you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it

Be careful what you wish for
'Cause you just might get it
You just might get it
You just might get it

This version literally just has their vocals and you're literally discrediting them for this song like it's rare for the dolls to be able to song even in background so idk the point of this comment

That's why a lot of fans are mad why this version wasn't like the album version cuz' on that version it was only nicole and someone doin' the backgrounds

The pcd recording group supposedly consists of 4 lead vocalists: nicole, carmit, kaya, and melody; and 2 background/additional vocalists/dancers: ashley and jessica. But kaya left, then they were 5 on the line-up. Nicole recorded their debut album by herself, as she said on a video before. Then the team just played it on the other dolls and re-recorded some parts for their vocals. On the don't cha video, it was like an audition for kimberly and another doll that's why there were 7 dolls on the choreo highlights of the video. That's how kimberly got into the recording line-up.

In 2007, carmit left because nicole started doing solo but it flopped because fans wanted the dolls not her solo. Her unreleased solo debut album was then re-recorded for doll domination. Because of carmit being a prominent member of the group, they made jessica dyed her hair into her red hair to make it seem like nothing happened or just to cover it up.

The other dolls were heated up when they released jai ho because it was credited as nicole scherzinger ft. The pussycat dolls. They said they were fine with her being the lead but they've always agreed on being credited as just the pussycat dolls as a whole. It was a huge disrespect to the other dolls, that's why they started leaving the group one by one until nicole was the only memeber of the group.

The management tried to revamped the group with nicole still on the lead with a bunch of new girls but this never happened. The supposedly 2nd line-up of the pcd were girlicious but nicole left the line-up too for focusing on her solo then the girlicious debuted as a quarter after that.

Las elecciones cinematográficas y artísticas son brillantes. Referencias culturales europeas realmente interesantes. Ojalá la cultura europea se representara más a menudo tan bellamente. No puedo dejar de decir "oh, esto es hermoso" a lo largo del video. Luz, en serio... el que se encargue de la iluminación, genial..

The affirmations in this song are much stronger and direct than male artists can often pull off portraying that level of ego with sex appeal and a simple catchy song … songs like this are definitely why my generation grew up with girl boss competitiveness

sofie De leon

Yes and I'm proud that our generation grasped that!!!!

Joseph Lewis

This song is cool. I remember when I first heard this song. I was 13 years old, my voice had just gone deeper and lower at the time and I absolutely couldn't get enough of listening to this song and watching the video. I absolutely loved it. Love Nicole Scherzinger, love the pussycat dolls and I love their songs. I hope we come across more and more songs as great as this.
