Michael Jackson - When I Come Of Age (Alternate Version)

Song written specially for Michael by Hal Davis, Don Fletcher and
Weldon Dean Parkes, about a boy’s wishes and what he would like to
become when he grows up.

Recorded by Michael in the early-to-mid 1970s, released for the first
time on his album, LOOKING BACK TO YESTERDAY, issued in
February 1986 in the States and May 1986 in the UK.

Demo version, with alternate ending – different lyrics – known to exist.


When I Come Of Age

Where have I been?
What should I be looking for?
What am I gonna be when I come of age?
Will I be strong?
Will I be a mighty man?
Climb mountains if I can
When I come of age?


Hey y'all I think I'll be a movie star
Or travel to some distant star
Yeah that's it I'm gonna be an astronaut
And rock it to the moon
And then I'll be the
captain of a giant ship
I'm gonna take a long, long
Trip to far off land
When I become a man

And what about love?
Will you still be in love with me?
I sure hope you will be
When I come of age
And will you be true?
Will you still want to marry me?
I guess I'll have to wait and see
When I come of age

My folks say I'm too young for love
But they don't seem to understand
That what I feel is love for somebody
A feeling I understand
And while I've got this feeling
It's you, girl, you're so grand
And I'll love you girl just as strong
When I become a man

Wait, be patient honey
You've got to believe in me
Wait, wait for me baby
It'll be just you and me
We'll do all the things
We couldn't do before
When, when I come of age
We're gonna be so happy
When, when I come of age
When, when I come of age
We're gonna be so happy
