When I Grow Up

From the musical

Matilda the Musical



Music by Tim Minchin

"When I Grow Up" was the first song that Tim Minchin wrote for Matilda, attempting to find a tone for the entire musical, drawing inspiration from his own child. He also drew inspiration from a childhood memory in which the adults on his grandfather's farm would fiddle with the padlock to a gate, whereas Minchin went out of his way to hurdle the gate, promising to himself to never open the farm gate.[

Bouncy and idiosyncratic, Emerson's arrangement captures the wonder!
