Oooooh
Some people think they’re always right
Others are quiet and uptight
Others they seem so very nice nice nice nice nice oh oh
Inside they might feel sad and wrong

Oh no
29 different attributes
And only 7 that you like, uh oh
20 ways to see the world, oh oh
Or 20 ways to start a fight

Oh, don’t, don’t, don’t
Get up
I can’t see the sunshine
I’ll be waiting for you baby
'Cause I'm through
Sit me down
Shut me up
I’ll calm down
And I’ll get along with you

Ooooooo-ooooo-ooooooh
Oh, men don’t notice what they got
Women think of that a lot
1000 ways to please your man oh oh
Not even one requires a plan. I know
Countless odd religions too
It doesn’t matter which you choose
One stubborn way to turn your back
This I’ve tried, and now refuse

Oh don’t don’t don’t
Get up
I can’t see the sunshine
I’ll be waiting for you, baby
'Cause I'm through
Sit me down
Shut me up
I’ll calm down
And I’ll get along with you

Alright..
Shut me up
Shut me up up up up up
And I’ll get along with you…

Oh brother I can’t, I can’t get through

I’ve been trying hard to reach you ‘cause I don’t know what to do

Oh brother I can’t believe it’s trueI’m so scared about the future and I wanna talk to you

Oh I wanna talk to you

You could take a picture of something you see

In the future where will I be?

You could climb a ladder up to the sun

Or write a song nobody had sung

Or do something that’s never been done

Are you lost or incomplete?

Do you feel like a puzzle, you can’t find your missing piece?

Tell me how you feel

Well I feel like they’re talking in a language I don’t speak

And they’re talking it to me

So you don’t know where you’re going and you wanna talk

And you feel like you’re going where you’ve been before

You’ll tell anyone who’ll listen but you feel ignored

Nothing’s really making any sense at all

Let’s talk, let’s talk

I’ll hold your hand when you are feeling mad
When the monsters they won’t go
And every day that you want to waste, that you want to waste, you can
And every day that you want to wake up, and you want to wake, you can
And every day that you want to change, that you want to change
