"Something Better" as written by Gerry Goffin and Barry Mann....
I wake up each day and wonder what for
It seems to me there must be something more
Something more than stacks of dishes
And washing this old floor

If I had my pick of wishes
I'd wish me out that door
'Cause I'm hungry for adventure
And I'm fed up with this grind

If I don't get some adventure soon
I'm gonna lose my mind
I want a life that's filled with thrills
That's wild and free

There's gotta be something better
Something better
There's gotta be something better than this for me

I look around here and I want to cry

Aw, me too

I feel like the world is passing me by

It is!

And I just can't help but wonder
Am I doomed to wash and dry
And is it a curse I'm under
To do it till I die

Well, I hope not
Yeah

When I could be an explorer
Sure you could!

Sailing off to distant lands
Not so fast

Instead of spending every afternoon
Just getting dish pan hands
My future looks like nowhere that I want to be
There's gotta be something better
Something better
There's gotta be something better than this for me

Well, now your talkin'!
If its weird and wild let's go and find it
The crazier the better is what I say

Yeah, that's true
To tell the truth I really wouldn't mind it

Mind what?

If we find someplace with ten square meals a day
Let danger call my name
If it does I'm gonna hide
I'll put my courage to the test
And I'll be my your side

We'll be by your side

There's gotta be something better than this
Something more than this
I know there's so much out there to see
And I know this life I'm living can be my destiny
There's gotta be something better
Something better
There's gotta be something better than this for me

And me!
Wait a minute, what about me?

There's something better than this for you and me
