AA chord           GG chord     DD chord
I wish that I was eighteen,
AA chord
To do all the things,
GG chord             DD chord
You read in a magazine,
AA chord              GG chord            DD chord
I’m not saying I want to be Charlie Sheen.

Interlude: CC chord  DD chord

AA chord          GG chord            DD chord
She’s just a little bit older,
AA chord      GG chord         DD chord
I want to get to know her,
AA chord            GG chord             DD chord
And she said she’s already over her ex.

Interlude: CC chord  DD chord

EE chord                          GG chord
So tell me what else can I do?
            AA chord
I bought my fake IDD chord for you.

Chorus:
DD chord                       AA chord
She told me to meet her there,
                            EmEm chord
But I can’t afford the bus fare,

I’m not old enough for her,
GG chord                 AA chord
I'm just thinking about being eighteen.


DD chord                          AA chord
She’s got me waiting in a queue,
                         EmEm chord
For a bar I can’t get in to,

I’m not old enough for you,
GG chord                 AA chord
I’m just waiting ‘till I’m eighteen.


AA chord           GG chord             DD chord
I think she wants to get with me,
AA chord           GG chord             DD chord
But she’s got a job in the city,
AA chord           GG chord             DD chord
Says that she’s always too busy.

Interlude: CC chord   DD chord

AA chord          GG chord       DD chord
She’s got a real nice tattoo,
AA chord          GG chord       DD chord
In a place I want to get in to,
AA chord          GG chord               DD chord
But my mom still drives me to school.

I’m just waiting ‘till I’m eighteen.

        In my bedroom thinking of you,

        Your pictures in my private folder,
