"Opportunity" as written by and Elvis Costello....
Opportunity, opportunity
Somebody help him
Opportunity, opportunity
Comes once in a life

I want to tell a story about a friend I know
He was on top, the start of the show
But he didn't remember all the things that were said
He let success go straight to his head

Opportunity, opportunity
Somebody help him
Opportunity, opportunity
Comes once in a life

Take a lesson from a fool's advice
Opportunity knocks once, not twice
They say opportunity is like a father time
If it keeps on rolling, he'll pass you by

Opportunity, opportunity
Somebody help him
Opportunity, opportunity
Comes once in a life

He runs all day at the rising sun
He don't come home until the night is done
But the fool don't know he has so much fun
But for him the future is done

Opportunity, opportunity
Somebody help him
Opportunity, opportunity
Comes once in a life
