Can you tell I’m losing sleep? Should get a warning every morning... Can it get better, if you would just drop on by? You bet it does and it’s not to offend: Only recently it came to my mind You’re the one that sticks around most of the time Skip the rush, the line, do it your way I bet Sinatra would agree, but I say: The way you dance in my head Makes me rock ‘n roll Sharp moves and dirty minds... A celebration of some kind! Halfway, a little time to go I’ve come, a short, short way from yesterday But thanks to you now I’m lifting myself out of space! I sure did play a lot of games About the winning, the wondering why Could I manage to finish just in time?
Keep on sticking to my plan Let’s stick together, ‘cause we can! While everybody knows Can’t be more obvious, it shows... But I don't exactly know Why I keep visiting you ‘Cause all you do is tell With a look, so professional: Do you ever wonder where I'm going? Do you worry 'bout my steps or about my moves? ‘Cause baby... I certainly won't hold anything Against you if you did the same to me, but... I can't stand this feeling, stand this feeling All that it takes, is only some Approval of the things we've done Tell me when is my next appointment / disappointment? I remember you so well You made me impressed most of the time Acting really tough Was it ever enough for you? I’ve come to realize This care is at a high prize But I’ll be back here next year, 'cause...
Rat Race 03:39
Tell me why, how and when Paint me a picture, that’s bright and colorful It’s been quite a while since then I can tell you have been trying to look beautiful Still I don’t know how, I don’t know why How do people manage? Why do people keep in touch? Wish I could let it all slide I’d thank you very much! I will never play a new part in your rat race I’ll be moving forward at great speed, I should... I will never say it straight into your sad face: ‘I love your pretty lies, they seem so true’ If only I could tell you! Why don’t you take a look around? I've opened up in every single way I might even become your friend, but only... If you tell me something funny every day Faces that I hardly know Why do people bother? Why do people even care? I know we’re all just grand voyeurs But I guess I’m just the same We couldn’t care less about We couldn’t care less, no doubt! We couldn’t care less about you (WOWOWOWOWO)
Don’t you underestimate I’m a ‘7 page expert’, that’s what they say Although my head got smaller day by day Like the time I successfully Managed to trick you into believing me I’m reproducing 60 years of TV What do you know, what do you know? I’ll promise you this favor, but... I’ll whisper to you once more More and more....WHOOHOOOHOOO I hit you left WHOOHOOO Hit me right back, YOU DO! I’ve taken quite a few In ‘competition me and you’ So funny to notice What you said, what you did, there’s no match at all You’ve granted me a head start after all Monday you went straight right On Tuesday it turned out you had turned left Doesn’t matter, stay away regrets! Now let me have my consolation prize Negotiate peace to end this fight all right? Some fair competition isn’t bothering me As long as I get to be the referee...
