What will you be when you grow up?
What do you want to be?
A doctor, a lawyer, a fire chief?
An astronaut in space, a sailor at sea?
What do you really want to be
when you grow up big and strong?
Do you want to be a famous movie star?
Do you want to fly a plane or race in a car?
There's so many possibilities for you to be
what you want to be!

What do you dream about at night?
What do you see when you sleep?
What kind of animals run through your head
late at night when you're snuggled in bed?
What does the world look like to you
when you're having a wonderful dream?
Do you fly like a bird through the big blue sky?
Does it still feel real when you open your eyes?
There's so much you can do in your dreams,
you can be what you want to be!

I have a special wish for you:
May the best of your dreams come true!
Try your best from the very start,
believe in yourself and always follow your heart.
There's a whole world of opportunity
for you to be what you want to be!
Oh yeah, be what you want to be!
You can be what you want to be!
