"Turn It Up & Sing Along!"


Music & Lyrics by Dallas Doctor
©2009 Wild Moose Music (BMI)

(Verse 1):
When I grow up
Don't wanna be a banker
Or a professor with a PhD
Don't wanna be a cop
Or butcher, baker, or candlestick-maker
I think the coolest thing to be ..

(Chorus 1):
SongWriter -- Like Paul McCartney
SongWriter -- Like Carole King
SongWriter -- John Winston Lennon
He could "Imagine" anything

(Verse 2):
When I grow up
I wanna learn their secrets
Oh how they could make the whole world sing
It's not just what they say
But also how they say it
That puts the magic in the thing

(Chorus 2):
SongWriter -- Like Smokey Robinson
SongWriter -- Like Jackson Brown
SongWriter -- Like Brian Wilson
His "Good Vibrations" "Get Around"

If you remember where you were
When you first heard it
And if the memories and feelings are so strong
That it takes you back in time
With just a melody and rhyme
Then turn it up and sing along ..

(Chorus 3):
SongWriter -- Like Stevie Wonder
SongWriter -- Like Marvin Gaye
SongWriter -- Like Buddy Holly
"Maybe Baby," "That'll Be The Day"

(Verse 3):
When I grow up
I'll put away this schemin'
Just as soon as there's nothin' left to write about
But until then
I'm gonna keep on dreamin'
And yes, I know
I left a lot 'a great ones out ..

SongWriter --
-- Like Leiber & Stoller, the Hollands & Dozier, Mick & Keith, & Willie Nelson

SongWriter --
-- Bernie & Elton, Carl Perkins, Jimi Hendrix, & Bob Dylan

SongWriter --
-- Leonard Cohen, Todd Rundgren, Neil Young, & Neil Diamond

SongWriter --
-- Roger Waters, Pete Townsend, Jimmy Page, & Paul Simon
