There’s been a strange change come over Danny
G                C  C/B
These last few summer months
G                C       C/B
School’s in and all at once
           G   C C/B   G         C C/B
He’s got a good three inches on any
G                C  C/B
Forward in our city
G    Bm     Am    C
He’s playing varsity
D                 C              G            C C/B
Daniel’s having a growth spurt, where’s mine?
D                 C              G            C C/B
Daniel’s having a growth spurt, where’s mine?

Bm                               Em(7) 
Ninth grade, they chose us last, Tenth grade, he’s lithe and fast
Am                 D   /C /B /A
While I’m still in line

I used to stand and smile next to Sandy
In pictures arranged by height
Said cheese and overnight
I guess that diet full of chips and candy
Stopped being nourishing
Meanwhile she’s flourishing
Sandra’s having a growth spurt, when’s mine?
D                 C              G      C    G  C
Sandra’s having a growth spurt, when’s mine?

Once we would walk for blocks, Now she gets rides from jocks
While I wave and whine

Ebm            B
Youth is not a sweatshirt
    F#
And hope is not a watch
           Ebm            B            F#       G#m Bb
And they’ll never turn up in the lost and found
Ebm                    B
But someone’s going to get hurt
        F#               B
Just as sure as whisky’s Scotch
    G#m                                 D /C /B /A
And I don’t want to be the one to wait around

See all the downtown store windows boarded
The shops have moved or closed
Meanwhile the strip malls rose
‘Til all The Daily Report reported
Was our swelling density
Hot nineties edge city
Upland’s having a growth spurt, where’s mine?
