When I grow up, I’m gonna be a dentist. Making your teeth look the best, so you can wear a smile.
There’s so much that I can do now, what should I be? X2
When I grow up, I’m gonna be a pilot. Flying high up in the sky, in a jumbo jet.
When I grow up, I’m gonna be a baker. Peanut butter, jelly, donut will be my specialty.
There’s so much that I can do now, what should I be? X2
When I grow up, I’m gonna be an actor, you will see me on TV, a famous movie star.
When I grow up, I’m gonna be a doctor. An apple a day is what I will say to keep you feeling great.
There’s so much that I can do now, what should I be? X2

He also delivers the beer to the island’s only pub. Then he helps Margaret in the shop.

He says: ‘Margaret likes being busy, too. We never have holidays and we don‘t like watching television. In the evenings Margaret makes supper and I do the accounts. At 10.00 we have a glass of wine and then we go to bed. Perhaps our life isn’t very exciting, but we like it.’

Mr. and Mrs. Seumas have a son and a daughter, the son’s name is Bob and he is a doctor. He is Scotlandian but now he lives in Australia in the small, far away from his parents.

He isn’t married. He has no free time.

Alison is the name of seumas’s daughter. Alison is a scientist. She graduated from Cambridge in England, but now she lives near her parents on the island of Gigha. She works three days a week at the Institute of Molecular Biology. She speaks three languages: English, French, German. She’s married and has a daughter.
