Lyrics[2]

  • Fairy tales, fairy tales
  • I don't enjoy
  • Fairy tales and wishful dreams
  • Are broken toys
  • 'Cause I'm a big boy now (Big boy)
  • That's looking for (Big boy)
  • Someone to love, oh yeah
  • Someone, someone to share my dreams, oh yeah
  • Mother goose, oh mother goose
  • Oh, won't you join
  • All I need is an ol' lovely girl
  • Holding my arm
  • 'Cause I'm a big boy now (Big boy)
  • That's looking for (Big boy)
  • Someone to love, oh yeah
  • Someone, someone to share my dreams, oh yeah
  • Skating boards
  • And kiddie cars
  • Have had their day
  • Dating at the picture show with you
  • Is here to stay
  • 'Cause I'm a big boy (Big boy)
  • That's looking for (Big boy)
  • Someone to love, oh yeah
  • Someone, someone to share my dreams, oh yeah
  • Come on, baby
  • Come on, baby, ooh

History

During Development

The Jackson 5 produced and played instruments on many of their Steeltown compositions, including "Big Boy". The song was never a critical nor commercial success, but the Jackson family were delighted with the outcome nonetheless.

25 Years Later

The recordings of this song and "We Don't Have To Be Over 21 (to Fall in Love)" were thought to be lost until they were rediscovered. They were remastered and reissued in 1995, with "Big Boy" as the promotional lead single.
