You can count on a number of things
Like tomorrow the sun’s gonna shine
There’ll be flowers in spring time
Poets will make rhymes
Couples in moonlight are so ripe to fall

Fallin' in love, such a natural thing
There’s a look in that one person’s eyes
And the moment we know it
We don’t want to blow it
So we get way too careful and it all slips away

You’ve always told me
You can do better
And something would always come along,
And so I listened, down to the letter
'Til somebody better came along

You… you can do better
Talkin' to you, you, you, you...
You gotta do better!

Now I feel like I’m swimming upstream
When the current is running so strong
I’m a fish out of water
The first time I saw you
Couldn’t keep it together
Don’t care if I’m wrong
But it seems like forever
Since we got along

You’ve always told me
You can do better
And something would always come along
And so I listened, down to the letter
'Til somebody better came along

You said it so often
You thought I’d believe it
That I was always doin’ it wrong,
But you always said that
You could take it or leave it
So, somebody better came along!

(Repeat last two verses)

You... You can do better, better.
Talkin’ to you, you, you...
You gotta do better!
