“You Get What You Give”

by The New Radicals

The YouTube video (with lyrics):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uc6jd9P1X6w

One, one, one…
One, TWO!
One, two, THREE!

Wake up kids
We’ve got the dreamer’s disease
Age fourteen we got you down on your knees
So polite, you’re busy still saying ‘please’

Frienemies, who when you’re down ain’t your friend
Every night we smash their Mercedes-Benz
First we run and then we laugh till we cry

But when the night is falling
You cannot find the light
(Light!)
If you feel your dreams are dying
Hold tight
You’ve got the music in you

Don’t let go
You’ve got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don’t give up
You’ve got a reason to live
Can’t forget
We only get what we give

I’m coming home, baby
You’re tops
Give it to me now

Four a.m. we ran a miracle mile
We’re flat broke but, hey, we do it in style
The bad rich
God’s flying in for your trial

But when the night is falling
You cannot find a friend
(Friend!)
You feel your tree is breaking
Just then
You’ve got the music in you

Don’t let go
You’ve got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don’t give up
You’ve got a reason to live
Can’t forget
We only get what we give

This whole damn world can fall apart
You’ll be okay — follow your heart
You’re in harm’s way — I’m right behind
Now say you’re mine
You’ve got the music in you

Don’t let go
You’ve got the music in you
One dance left
This world is gonna pull through
Don’t give up
You’ve got a reason to live
Can’t forget
We only get what we give
Don’t let go
I feel the music in you

Fly high … HIGH
What’s real can’t die
You only get what you give
You gonna get what you give

Dont’t give up
Just don’t be afraid to live

Health insurance ripoff lying
FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they’re multiplying

Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson
You’re all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We’ll kick your ass in!

Don’t let go
One dance left
Don’t give up
Can’t forget
Don’t…

* * *

See you ’round,
While I get myself sorted out by pound.

I’ll be back,
After I lay down the track.

Sooner or later,
Hopefully tastier than ever.

One fine day.
Whatever at me they spray.
