"Standing on the Inside" as written by and Neil Sedaka....
Standin' on the outside
Lookin' in
You know it's been a long time,
Don't know where to begin
So much I want to say,
so much I want to do,
Friends are tellin' me
It's time that you broke through.

I've been through the hard times
Of searchin' souls,
You know it's been a hard climb
From rock and roll.
Now I feel a need in me,
so hard to explain,
Now I've seen the joy and light,
And I want to remain.

Standin' on the inside,
I finally broke that line,
Ring around the circle,
Don't you know that it feels so fine.
Every waking moment
I just want to sing the news
That I'm standin' on the inside,
I kicked away them blues.

All the phony faces
Stand in line.
All the back-slappers
Know my name this time.
Now that I've turned the lock,
now that I've opened the door,
I won't be on the outside,
not anymore, not any more.

Standin' on the inside,
I finally broke that line,
Ring around the circle,
Don't you know that it feels so fine.
Every waking moment
I just want to sing the news
That I'm standin' on the inside,
I pushed away them blues.

Now that I've turned the lock,
now that I've opened the door,
I won't be on the outside, not anymore.

Standin' on the inside,
I finally broke that line,
Ring around the circle,
Don't you know that it feels so fine.
Every waking moment
I just wanna sing the news
That I'm standin' on the inside,
I kicked away them blues.

Standin' on the inside,
Standin' on the inside,
I kicked, kicked, kicked it,
Standin' on the inside,
Standin' on the inside,
I kicked, kicked
