Children dream to be someone important

 

I wanna be a fireman when I grow up,

and if they wont let me be a fire man,

I could be the one who lights the fires instead.

 

I wanna be a policeman and catch all the robbers when I grow up,

and if they wont let me be a police man,

Ill be the robber who gets away.

 

For what ever Im gonna be,

I want to be the one in the centre of all the action.
