Lyrics

The lyrics may vary in some episodes, but the ones below are featured in most Barney & Friends episodes where this song is sung in:

What I want to be, what I want to be
When I grow up to be big me.
What I want to be, what I want to be
Is a doctor or a mail carrier.
Each day I work, what fun it would be.
I'll always do my responsibility.
I'll do what I do so carefully
When I grow up to be big me.
What I want to be, what I want to be
When I grow up to be big me.
What I want to be, what I want to be
Is a farmer or a firefighter.
Each day I work, what fun it would be.
I'll always do my responsibility.
I'll do what I do so carefully
When I grow up to be big me.
Doctor. Mail carrier.
Farmer. Firefighter.
When I grow up to be big me.

Alternate Lyrics 

A variant in Barney's Halloween Party features the lyrics below:

What I want to be, what I want to be
When I go out on Halloween.
What I want to be, what I want to be
Is a princess or a ballerina.
Each house I see, what fun it would be.
We'll play trick or treat, just you and me!
I'll do what I do so carefully
When I go out on Halloween.
What I want to be, what I want to be
When I go out on Halloween.
What I want to be, what I want to be
Is a farmer or a firefighter.
Each house I see, what fun it would be.
We'll play trick or treat, just you and me.
I'll do what I do so carefully
When I go out on Halloween.
We'll do what we do so carefully
When we go out on Halloween!
