  • When I'm an old lady
    I'm gonna be his baby
    I'm gonna wrap myself around him
    And then I'm gonna kiss him

    But that's a way down the line
    You see for now he isn't mine..
    But I don't mind waiting
    And the longing's not aching

    'Cause I know
    One day he'll say, "that's my girl"
    The happiest words in the world
    Make me laugh like an idiot
    Not be so serious

    For now when I'm around him
    I act like I don't care for him
    I even act like I don't like him
    Ignore him, to spite him

    But only so that I won't smile at him
    For everyone would know I love him
    And that's so uncool
    'Cause it's messing with all the rules

    And I know
    One day he'll say, "that's my girl"
    The happiest words in the world
    Make me laugh like an idiot
    Not be so serious Writer/s: CHRIS CONSTANTINOU, MARCO PIRRONI, SINEAD O'CONNOR
