Grownup

Carly Simon

 D7GmF
 I stood in the doorway in my white nightgown
 Gm
 Red roses on linen
 F
 I stood three feet from the ground
 Ebmaj7A7
The grownups laughed inside
 DDm
Used words I didn't know
 Gm7A7
But still I enjoyed the show  

 Gm
 They looked so lovely
 F
 They looked so self-assured
 Gm
And I just like them
 F
Would know it all when I matured
 Ebmaj7A7DDm
And no longer be afraid of the darkness or the bears
 Gm7A7
Or the cracks in the ceiling upstairs

 Gm
Well, I've just gotten older
 Am
 I've just gotten taller
 A7
And the little ones
 Am7D
Call me a grownup

 Gm
 Last night at a friend's house
 F
A little girl was there
 GmF
She stood in the doorway playing with her hair
 Ebmaj7A7DDm
 She looked up at me as if I could do no wrong
 Gm7A7
As I stood to sing my song
 Gm
 I sang it with a shiver
 F
In my throat and in my knees
 Gm
 Feeling just as small
 F
As a thistle in a breeze
 Ebmaj7A7
But the child's imagination
 DDm
 Carried me along
 Gm7A7
And saw me through my song

 Gm
See, I've just gotten older
 Am
 I've just gotten taller
 A7
And the little ones
 Am7DAD7Gm
Call me a grownup
