Lyrics

  • IF THAT’S WHERE YOU WANT TO BE
  • BUT DOES THE LOOK ON YOUR FACE
  • MEAN YOUR REALLY FEELING HAPPY
  • OR DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR STANDING ON A WOODEN LEG
  • OR A POOR MAN MUCH TOO PROUD TO BEG
  • OR A PAGE FROM A BOOK THAT CAN’T BE READ AT ALL
  • CAN’T YOU SEE BY THE WAY THAT THEY ARE TALKING
  • THAT IT’S TIME FOR YOU TO TAKE UP YOUR GRIP, START WALKING
  • CAUSE THEY WANT TO SEE YOUR LONG LEGS A FLYING
  • GO TO THE PLACE WHERE THE EARTH MEETS THE SKY
  • AND DON’T STOP TO TURN AROUND AND WAVE GOODBYE AT ALL
  • THEY WON’T BE SATISFIED
  • TILL YOU’RE OUT OF THERE SIGHT
  • BUT I WONDER HOW WILL THAT BE
  • WITH A DECK OF CARDS YOU’RE NOT AROUND TO DEAL YEAH
  • THEY WON’T BE SATISFIED
  • TILL YOU’RE OUT OF THERE SIGHT
  • BUT I WONDER HOW WILL YOU FEEL
  • WITH A DECK OF CARDS YOU’RE NOT AROUND TO DEAL
  • WELL THEY SAY IT’S A LIE, IT’S A JOKE THAT YOU’RE LIVING
  • BUT YOU KNOW ONE THING THEY DON’T YOU WON’T GIVE IN
  • ‘CAUSE YOU’RE LIKE A CAT CHASING ITS TAIL
  • MAKES A MILLION CIRCLES BUT YOU’RE GONNA FAIL
  • SOMETIMES YOU JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND
  • WELL YOU CAN RIDE ON THE CREST OF A WAVE
  • IF THAT’S WHERE YOU WANT TO BE
  • BUT DOES THE LOOK ON YOUR FACE
  • MEAN YOUR REALLY FEELING HAPPY
  • OR DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR STANDING ON A WOODEN LEG
  • OR A POOR MAN MUCH TOO PROUD TO BEG
  • OR A PAGE FROM A BOOK THAT CAN’T BE READ AT ALL
  • DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOUR STANDING ON A WOODEN LEG
  • OR A POOR MAN MUCH TOO PROUD TO BEG
  • OR A PAGE FROM A BOOK THAT CAN’T BE READ AT ALL
