We took our -- we took our -- sweet old time,
Makin' plans -- makin' plans -- for our, our escape.
When I f-f-f-f-finally get it together,
I could never, ever, ever -- ever -- figure it out.

(Bridge X 2)
Help me, help me, figure it out.
Help me -- find what it's about.
Get up -- get, get, get on your feet.
Step up -- step, step, step to the beat.

(Chorus)
Hey! Don't pass it up, pass it up, pass it.
Hey! 'Cause opportunity's knock-knocking at your --
Hey! Don't pass it up, pass it up, pass it--
Hey! 'Cause opportunity's knock-knocking at your door.

Wake up and --wake up and -- do something.
Smell the sweet, sweet scent of --
(You know what to do, you know what to do.)
I want it so bad, and I know the others can
get it together, get it together.

(Bridge x 2)
.
Hey! Don't pass it up, pass it up, pass it.
Hey! 'Cause opportunity's knock-knocking at your --
Hey! Don't pass it up, pass it up, pass it--
Hey! 'Cause opportunity's knock-knocking at your --

(Guitar interlude)

Hey! Don't pass it up, pass it up, pass it.
Hey! 'Cause opportunity's knock-knocking at your --
Hey! Don't pass it up, pass it up, pass it--
Hey! 'Cause opportunity's knock-knocking at your --
('Cause opportunity is knocking-knocking-knocking-knocking --)

    My InterpretationThe singer feels stuck in the path to whatever their pursuit may be, and is asking someone to give them a hand up. She says that she knows the others can get it together they just need the extra boost from this person. She is also claiming that taking on the favor for them, would be rewarding for whoever the song is directed towards.
