He got the moves and he got the shoes
He's done everything that I can think I want to have done
It's troubling me (WHAT?)
He got it so sweet (WHO'S THAT?)
Goes by the name of Mac he thinks he is the bees

I realise, I realise what's going wrong
Nothing's funny when no money's to be made at all
I got a bum deal
I got a bum deal
I got a bum deal
I got a bum deal
I got a...

I feel alive
But this life was cracked up to be
So much more than is happening to me but
I feel alive
[And I'll pay], I won't stop believe (Way-oh Way-oh)
Won't stop believing

Don't get too close to the man with the [mask 'cause he will]
[Cut me down to sides with me] pieces by their own
Can't help but ask, need to hear from the best (WHAT'S THAT?)
Now tell me Mackie what's your secret to sucess

A real job, a real job is what you want
No more worries, [no more struggles in case you can't]

I feel alive
But this life was cracked up to be
So much more than is happening to me but
I feel alive
[And I'll pay], I won't stop believe (Way-oh Way-oh)
Won't stop believing

I want what Mackie's got
I want what Mackie's got
I want what Mackie's got
I want what Mackie's got
I want what Mackie's got
I want what Mackie's got
It's not the one (It's not the one)

I want what Mackie's got
I want what Mackie's got
I want what Mackie's got
I want what Mackie's got
I want what Mackie's got
I want what Mackie's got
I want what Mackie's got
I want what Mackie's got

See this life was cracked up to be
So much more than is happening to me but
(Way-oh Way-oh)
I won't stop believing
(Way-oh Way-oh)
Living today has been dreamed that I'll [paint all my house oh]
What if it's not the one?

I feel alive
But this dream that I'm living what if
(It's not the one? It's not the one?)
I feel alive
I won't stop believe
(Way-oh Way-oh)
I won't stop believing
I...
