    Yeah, when I grow up, you know what I wanna be?
    Take a seat, let me tell you my ridiculous dreams
    I wanna rap, yeah, I know it's hard to believe
    And I can tell you're already thinkin' I will never succeed
    But I'm okay with it, I admit the lyrics are weak
    I been workin' on 'em, I'll be good eventually
    I understand you gotta crawl before you get to your feet
    But I been running for a while, they ain't ready for me, ah
    I know this probably isn't really realistic
    And honestly, I might not ever make a difference
    But that don't make a difference, I'ma have to risk it
    I been crunchin' numbers, you ain't gotta be a mathematician
    To see the odds ain't rootin' for me
    I can't lie though, it's kinda how I like it to be
    The underdog, yeah, you probably think you know what I mean
    But what I'm saying is they ever push me, I'm gonna swing, yeah
    I could go to college, get in debt like everybody else
    Graduate and probably get a job that doesn't pay the bills
    That don't make a lot of sense to me, forget the Happy Meals
    I don't like the dollar menu, I would rather make a mil'
    Huh? Make a meal? Nah, I said make a mil'
    Home-cookin', get the grill, how you want it? Pretty well?
    Everything I see is overdone to me, I'm not Adele
    But I'ma get a record deal and say hello to mass appeal
    When I grow up, I just want to pay my bills
    Rappin' about the way I feel, oh yeah
    I just want to make a couple mil'
    Leave it to the fam in the will, oh yeah
    I just want to sign a record deal
    Maybe buy a house up in the hills, oh yeah
    Might not be the best in my field
    But I guarantee that I'ma die real
    When I grow up
    Yeah, ayy
    When I grow up
    Yeah, yeah, ayy
    I'ma make 'em notice me, rhymin' like it's poetry
    Everything I oversee, I just like to overthink
    Mockin' me, you pay the fee, no return and no receipts
    Those of you that don't believe, quiet, you don't know a thing
    Quiet when I'm tryna sing, quiet when I'm making beats
    Quiet when I'm tryna think, sorry, I don't mean to scream
    I just feel like no one really gets me and it's sad to see
    'Cause someday I'ma grow up and show all of you it's meant to be, yeah
    Anybody wanna hear me rap? "No"
    Come on, let me play a couple tracks, "No"
    Come on, I can spit it really fast, "No"
    You think I should throw this in the trash? "No"
    Tricked you, haters, go away before I hit you
    I am not a beggar or a kiss-up
    You don't understand? Well, I forgive you
    I am not a quitter, you ain't really think that, did you?
    Maybe someday I could even be up on the radio
    Have a tour bus and maybe even play a couple shows
    Everybody in the crowd singin' every word I wrote
    Tellin' me that I am not the only one that feels alone
    Huh? You feel alone? Yeah, I kinda feel alone
    Wonder if that feelin' ever goes away when you get old
    Will I ever make it as an artist? I don't really know
    Might not make a lot of dough, I'ma have to try it, though
    When I grow up, I just want to pay my bills
    Rappin' about the way I feel, oh yeah
    I just want to make a couple mil'
    Leave it to the fam in the will, oh yeah (yeah)
    I just want to sign a record deal
    Maybe buy a house up in the hills, oh yeah (okay)
    Might not be the best in my field (ayy)
    But I guarantee that I'ma die real (ayy, oh)
    When I grow up, I just want to pay my bills (woo)
    Rappin' about the way I feel, oh yeah (yeah, the way I feel)
    Yeah, I just want to make a couple mil' (ayy)
    Leave it to the fam in the will, oh yeah (to the fam in the will)
    I just want to sign a record deal (woo)
    Maybe buy a house up in the hills, oh yeah (a house up in the hills)
    Yeah, I might not be the best in my field (ayy)
    But I guarantee that I'ma die real
    When I grow up

  • Courtney Nelson

    ok yall this is for the hard core NF fans, when did the shopping cart become a thing? what does it mean? im curious, knowing Nf its something deep not hating just making an observation ( much love)

  • tyjo_is_ _sicc

    This song legit makes me wants to go to school with a black makeup-smile painted on my face
    High key inspirational, and doesn't make me feel like sh*t, which is my daily mood.
    This is why I love NF

  • Numa Arban

    The original
    When I grow up

    I wanna be famous

    I wanna be a star

    I wanna be in movies

    When I grow up

    I wanna see the world

    Drive nice cars

    I wanna have groupies

    I sort of missing the mumbling. Much harder to listen to, when one actually understands what the artist is saying. Why can’t he just rap „Gucci, Dollar mumble mumble“. That’d be much easier for me.

  • Christopher Gourdine

    I probably listened to this maybe 40xs this week. I hope he doesn't fall in the industry and change. And I'm an Eminem fan

  • 14k Shay

    This was the first song by NF I really listened to i know I’m late to the party but I really fw it any other suggestions from y’all real diehard NF fans

  • Fluffy Suga Kookies

    when I saw a white man jump off of a garbage truck this morning I thought of NF 😂😂💜 that's how I know he took over my brain

  • when a villager offers you 3 wheat for 64 emeralds

    6 year olds: I wanna be a billionaire
