Watch What Happens
Write what you know
So they say, all I know is I don't know what to write
Or the right way to write it
This is big, lady, don't screw it up
This is not some little vaudeville I'm reviewing
Poor little kids versus rich greedy sour pusses
Ha! It's a cinch!
It could practically write itself--
And let's pray it does, cause as I may have mentioned
I have no clue what I'm doing
Am I insane? This is what I've been waiting for
Well that, plus the screaming of ten angry editors
A girl? It's a girl! How the hell? Is that even legal?
Look, just go and get her!
Not only that, there's a story behind the story
Thousands of children, exploited, invisible
Speak up, take a stand, and there's someone to write about it
That's how things get better
Give life's little guys some ink, and when it dries just watch what happens
Those kids will live and breathe right on the page
And once they're center stage, you watch what happens
And who's there with her camera and her pen
As boys turn into men
They'll storm the gates and then just watch what happens when they do
Picture a handsome, heroically charismatic-
Plain spoken, know nothing, skirt-chasing, cocky little son of a-
Lie down with dogs and you wake up with a raise and a promotion
So, he's a flirt
A complete ego maniac
The fact is he's also the face of the strike-
What a face-
Face the facts, that's a face that could save us all from sinking in the ocean
Like someone said: Power tends to corrupt
And absolute power, wait! Wait, corrupts!?
Absolutely, that is genius!
But give me some time, I'll be twice as good as that six months from never
Just look around at the world we're inheriting
And think of the one we'll create
Their mistake is they got old, that is not a mistake we'll be making
No sir, we'll stay young forever!
Give those kids and me the brand new century and watch what happens
It's david and goliath, do or die
The fight is on and I can't watch what happens
But all I know is nothing happens if you just give in
It can't be any worse than how it's been
And it just so happens that we just might win
So whatever happens! Let's begin!
