lyrics

Summer was about our swimming pool
and the kids from school would come
and Mum would make her lemonade
and we'd all have fun

And me and my best friend
Miss Madeline, we would pretend
that we were married
and our husbands played for Essendon

No more Sunday afternoons
and no more sunny holidays in June
no more having tea parties
beneath the weeping willow tree
no more wondering if you love me

And as the years went by
I watched my shadow grow
and I got too old
to lick the spoon and watch cartoons
the neighbours left
and the rabbits died
the boys got sick
and there were bushfires
but we all came out on the other side alive

No more Sunday afternoons
and no more sunny holidays in June
no more having tea parties
beneath the weeping willow tree
no more wondering if you love me

Coz now we're grown up (grown up)
they watched us grow up (grow up)
and now we're grown up (grown up)
yeah, now we're grown up.
