Sometimes you get it right away
Sometimes you have to fight for it
Sometimes you get it all right but
then sometimes you don't

oh-ho-ho!

A boy with a dream and a man with a song
Man says to boy, "You'd better push it along."
And the boy replies,
"Don't tell me what to do,
this is my dream that's the size of your shoe."
Boy talks back, but he wants to be a man
Boy's just scared cause he doesn't have a plan
Man tells boy one piece of advice,
"If you want the whole pie first have one slice."

Sometimes you get it right away
Sometimes you have to fight for it
Sometimes you get it right then but
I wanna hear you say

Boys and girls need all of their time
but this time is clearly special

oohho

Boys and girls need all the time they have
to reach the potential of their present tense I now present the girl

Girl wants to be a woman with the dance
Woman tells girl that she doesn't have a chance
Girl talks back,
"I'll do what i choose! This is my dream I got nothin' to lose."
Girl wants it but she doesn't practice
Only exercise she gets is on a mattress
with the boy that wants to be a man
spending whole days just forgetting their plans

Sometimes you get it right away
Sometimes you have to fight for it
Sometimes you get it right then but
I wanna hear you say

Don't have to burn you down __ __
now that I really care
You don't have to keep it all inside
and shoulder the weight that you bear

sometimes sometimes sometimes sometimes sometimes (x14) (you get it right away, you have to fight for it, you get it right then but then sometimes you don't, oohho)

We all been told that we're nothing when we were younger
Some go and gather and some become the hunters
But no matter what the implications
can't always listen to the older generations

Look at these two who didn't have a chance
Kept to their goals and each other in advance
Now they listen to the man song and the boy and the girl that the woman danced on

Sometimes you get it right away
Sometimes you have to fight for it
Sometimes you get it right then but
I wanna hear you say

Sometimes you get it right away
Sometimes you have to fight for it
Sometimes you get it right then but
I wanna hear you say
