Way back in high school,
he was a big fat mess
that couldn't pass a joint enough
to pass a piss test.
We never knew he was twice as smart as the rest of us.
Well he must've done something right,
twenty-one with a house and hit on top forty.

When your world changes upside down,
wait your turn because karma comes around.
Think of all that you've got
So find the power you have within,
and live up to the life you're livin' in.
Hey, but take the longshot.

Well, as a freshmen,
nobody looked her way.
She walked the hall for years
but no one even knew her name.
A legal pad and a ballpoint pen were her only friends.
Well, she must've done something right.
Saw her face on TV selling her success story.

When your world changes upside down,
wait your turn because karma comes around.
Think of all that you've got.
So find the power you have within,
and live up to the life you're livin' in.
Hey, but take the longshot.

You never know what you're gonna get, do ya?
No way to tell if you'll ever rise to the top.
You'll never know if you never try, will ya?
So get up, and show 'em all what you got.

When your world changes upside down,
wait your turn 'cause karma comes around.
Think of all that you've got.
So find the power you have within
and live up to the life you're livin' in.
Hey, but take the longshot.
