"Something Good Can Work" as written by and Alexander James/halliday Trimble....
There's a spanner in the works, you know,
You gotta step up your game to make it to the top
So go,
Got a little competition now,
You're gonna find it hard to cope,
Livin' on your own, ooh, ooh

Let's make this happen, girl,
We're gonna show the world that something
Good can work, and it can work for you
And you know that it will.

Let's get this started, girl,
We're movin' up, we're movin' up
It's been a lot to change, but you
Will always get what you want.

It took a little time
To make a little better
It's only going out,
Just one thing then another you know, you know

It took a little time
To make a little better
It's only going out,
Just one thing then another you know, no

Let's make this happen, girl,
We're gonna show the world that something
Good can work, and it can work for you
And you know that it will.

Let's get this started, girl,
We're movin' up, we're movin' up
It's been a lot to change, but you
Will always get what you want.

    Lyric Correctionisn't it: 'it's only going up' instead of 'out'?

    General CommentThe song is called "Something Good Can Work" and you got a few lyrics wrong.

    Instead of "Got a little competition now,
    You're gonna find it hard to make it,
    Livin' on your own, o-oh, o-oh" It is "Got a little competition now,
    You're gonna find it hard to cope with
    Livin' on your own, o-oh, o-oh"\

    And the chorus is "Let's make this happen, girl,
    We're gonna show the world that something
    Good can work and it can work for yo-ou,
    And you know that it will."

    And instead of "It's only going out, just one thing then another" It is "It's only going up, just one thing then another"


    Anyways, I love this song and this band and Alex Trimble is a beautiful man (:
