The Real Life Song

Someday I'm gonna be a fireman.
....................Someday I'm gonna be an engineer.
Someday I'm gonna be an astronaut.
....................Someday I'm gonna be a general.
Someday I'm gonna be an acrobat.
....................Someday I'm gonna be a movie star.
IN REAL LIFE

I'm gonna be the first woman on the moon.
I'll be the second one.
I'll be the person who discovers North America.
IN REAL LIFE

Someday I'm gonna be a millionaire.
....................Someday I'm gonna be a scientist.
Someday I'm gonna be a billionaire.
...................Someday I'm gonna fly a shuttlecraft.
Someday I'm gonna run for president.
...................Someday I'm gonna be a zillionaire.
IN REAL LIFE

The only thing better than chasin' a dream
Is catch a dream and put it in a box
The only thing smarter than lookin' to the future
Is getting there and changing all the locks

Someday I'm gonna be a wizardess.
....................Someday I'm gonna be a samurai.
Someday I'm gonna build a rocketship.
....................Someday I'm gonna ride a unicorn.
Someday I'm gonna rule the galaxy.
....................Someday I'm gonna rule the universe.
IN REAL LIFE

We may be kids. But we're not kidding.
The future looks bright. Weather permitting.

The only thing better than chasin' a dream is catch a dream and put it in abox.
...Someday I'm gonna be a millionaire, a billionaire, a movie star.

Someday I'm gonna be the president, queen of France, shuttlecraft.
...The only thing smarter than lookin' to the future is getting there andchanging all the locks
IN REAL LIFE

We may be kids. But we're not kidding.
The future looks, the future looks BRIGHT!!!!
Life is a game. Let's start the bidding.
The future looks bright. (The future looks bright.)
IN REAL LIFE.
