GROWNUP Lyrics

Artist: Carly Simon
Album: Hotcakes

(Carly Simon)

I stood in the doorway in my white nightgown
Red roses on cotton, I stood three feet from the ground
the grownups inside used words I didn't know
But still I enjoyed the show

They looked so lovely, they looked so self-assured
And I just like them would know it all when I matured
And I wouldn't be afraid of the darkness or the bears
Or the cracks in the ceiling upstairs

Now I've just gotten older, I've just gotten taller
And the little ones, they call me a grownup

Lat night at a friend's house a little girl was there
She stood in the doorway playing with her hair
She looked up to me as if I could do no wrong
As I got up to sing my song

I sang it with a shiver in my throat and in my knees
Feeling just as small as a thistle in a breeze
But the child's imagination carried me along
And saw me through my song

Now I've just gotten older, I've just gotten taller
And the little ones call me a grownup

I am now 54 Years. I was a very good singer in my youth. When I sang a solo which was all the time it was a Carly Simon song. In fact when I had my daughter I had to sing it to her ever Night Or she would not go to sleep. Carly Sinon and James Tayler are number one in my book. Thank You for all the wounder memories
