A           G     D
I wish that I was eighteen,
A
To do all the things,
G             D
You read in a magazine,
A              G            D
I’m not saying I want to be Charlie Sheen.

Interlude: C  D

A          G            D
She’s just a little bit older,
A      G         D
I want to get to know her,
A            G             D
And she said she’s already over her ex.

Interlude: C  D

E                          G
So tell me what else can I do?
            A
I bought my fake ID for you.

Chorus:
D                       A
She told me to meet her there,
                            Em
But I can’t afford the bus fare,

I’m not old enough for her,
G                 A
I'm just thinking about being eighteen.


D                          A
She’s got me waiting in a queue,
                         Em
For a bar I can’t get in to,

I’m not old enough for you,
G                 A
I’m just waiting ‘till I’m eighteen.


A           G             D
I think she wants to get with me,
A           G             D
But she’s got a job in the city,
A           G             D
Says that she’s always too busy.

Interlude: C   D

A          G       D
She’s got a real nice tattoo,
A          G       D
In a place I want to get in to,
A          G               D
But my mom still drives me to school.

Interlude: C  D

E                          G
So tell me what else can I do?
            A
I bought my fake ID for you.

Chorus:
D                       A
She told me to meet her there,
                            Em
But I can’t afford the bus fare,

I’m not old enough for her,
G                 A
I'm just thinking about being eighteen.


D                          A
She’s got me waiting in a queue,
                         Em
For a bar I can’t get in to,

I’m not old enough for you,
G                 A
I’m just waiting ‘till I’m eighteen.


A G C D
        In my bedroom thinking of you,
A G C D
        Your pictures in my private folder,
A G C D
        I know one day that I will hold you,
A G C D
        I’ll make my move when I get older.

Chorus:
D                       A
She told me to meet her there,
                            Em
But I can’t afford the bus fare,

I’m not old enough for her,
G                 A
I'm just thinking about being eighteen.


D                          A
She’s got me waiting in a queue,
                         Em
For a bar I can’t get in to,

I’m not old enough for you,
G                 A
I’m just waiting ‘till I’m eighteen.
G                 A
I’m just waiting ‘till I’m
