lyrics

Hey big sister when I grow up oh yes I want to be like you
Whatever you do, and whenever you do it, you know I’ll wanna do it too
It’s why I come to the top of the stair and ask you to do my makeup and hair
And put on a dress and make a big mess, I do it all the time

Oh big sister, doncha get mad can’t you see it’s flattery?
To follow you around, to run you to ground, i want to keep you close to me
When you’re on the phone and you think you’re alone talking to your latest guy
Well I’m there too, I’ll be bothering you, why i really do mean to pry

Big sister: I want to be like you!
Big sister: it’s why I do the things I do. Just to be like you

Oh big sister sometimes I think that you really like me too
Like on Saturday mornings, lying on the couch
Watching Shaggy and Scooby Doo

And in the afternoon when we’re back from school watching Y&R, that Victor’s a tool
And Jack is so handsome and Andy is cruel
Just look what he did to Sheila!

Back of the car, oh wherever we are, listening to our favorite songs
Rick Astley and Wham and later Pearl Jam you know I’m going to sing along
Yes we sing like fools, and we dance in our seats then Dad turns the dial to the CBC
We moan and we groan until we get home, it happens every time

Big sister: I want to be like you!
Big sister: it’s why I do the things I do. Just to be like you

Oh big sister, time’s gonna come where we go our separate ways
You’ll go to college, I’ll stay at home, we won’t talk for days and days
It’s why I sit at the top of the stair and watch you put on your makeup and hair
No matter what happens, yeah we make a great pair, I say it all the time

Big sister: I want to be like you!
Big sister: it’s why I do the things I do. Just to be like you
