BandComedySinger/Songwriter

I write music. I do not play music. I listen to music, I judge music, I live and love music. Someday soon, you will hear a song and tap your feet to it. You will love the artist and you won't know my name, but I'll be the person who wrote that song.

Lyrics

Growing up young

Written By: Amir Girgis

There in My backyard
Playing with my toys
Someday I will grow up
But I'll still remain a boy

I built a castle in my play pit/I built it out of sand
Now the summer rain is falling/forming mud across the land
Someday I'll build a temple/strong as my dad when he's mad
When I grow up I'll hold myself up/so come and take my hand

There in my backyard
Playing with my toys
Someday I will grow up
But I'll still remain a boy

Now I'm learning about life from birds and bees/and grass and trees
I'm pulling out the weeds/and sticking worms between my teeth
Someday I'll own a restaurant/where everything is free
We'll serve dessert for breakfast/so come and dine with me

There in my backyard
Playing with my toys
Someday I will grow up
But I'll still remain a boy

We're burning ants beneath the sun/and practicing our rolls
We're jumping off the tire swing/and breaking all our bones
When I am old and big and strong/I'll feel a different pain
I'll burn entire villages/and light a smoke up off the flame

There in my backyard
Playing with my toys
Someday I will grow up
But I'll still remain a boy

It's dusk, as I sit on the deck/my father says to me
Solemnly, that one bird in the hand/is worth two in the tree
One day I'll tear the forests down/and build an aviary
I'll give the trees to refugees/and send them to the sea

I'll buy a gun and learn to fly
I'll shoot the sun right through the sky
One plus one will equal ten
The bureaucrats and businessmen
Will all get on their knees before me
The girls from school will all adore me
I'll be everything your not but
you can be my friend
