'Growing up' by Alan Marshall

Big boy and a bit of a man

Later, I will be an old man

And I’ll get grey hair.

Half a boy, half a man

Because I’m growing, growing

My body gets bigger

I was born small and then I got bigger.

I think I am more a man now

I am a man inside

I have a man inside

I have a low voice

Not high any more

I am a man

Grown from a boy

Like a tree

Spread and in leaf.
