Intro: Dm, Bb, F, C 

Dm        Bb             F 
When I grow up, I want to be a forester 
C                           Dm 
Run through the moss on high heels 
                      Bb     F 
That?s what I'll do, throwing out boomerang 
C                          Dm 
Waiting for it to come back to me 

Bb, F, C 

Dm         Bb     F 
When I grow up, I want to live near the sea 
C                        Dm 
Crab claws and bottles of rum 
                           Bb      F 
That?s what i?ll have, staring at the seashell 
C                     Dm      Bb      F   C 
Waiting for it to embrace me, oh ohhh ooh oh 

Dm                     Bb 
I put my soul in what I do 
Last night I drew a funny man 
C                            Dm 
with dark eyes and a hanging tongue 
       Bb          F 
It goes way bad, I never liked a sad look 
C                            Dm            Bb   F     C    
From someone who wants to be loved by you, oooh oooh  oohh 

Dm                      Bb 
I?m very good with plants 
When my friends are away 
           C                Dm 
they let me keep the soil moist 
On the seventh day I rest 
for a minute or two 
     C                  Dm           Bb   F   C     Dm   Bb  F    C 
then back on my feet to call for you oooh ooh oooh, oooh ooh ooh  ooh 

Dm  Bb  F   C 
    ooh ooh ooh 
Dm                          Bb 
You?ve got cucumbers on your eyes 
Too much time spent on nothing 
C                       Dm 
waiting for a moment to arise 
                Bb          F 
The face in the ceiling and arms too long 
C                      Dm       Bb   F    C      Dm 
I'm waiting for him to catch me oooh oooh oooh   oooh
