Wake me up when September ends. Travel the world and the seven seas. Everybody's looking for something. Now the accounts are overdrawn, I take a walk. I said hey man, take a walk on the wild side. Walk on. Another aeroplane, another sunny place. I'm lucky, I know. But I wanna go home. It's a party in the USA. If you don't know by now, I'm talking about Chi Town.
Pleased to meet you, won't you guess my name. Get ready to break the ice, feels like time is standing still. We all wanna change the world. We...like...to party. We like...we like to party. Where are my keys I lost my phone.
Snap back to reality. Stop daydreaming, that's what my teachers used to say while they kick a bunch of crap that I forgot anyway. Education's important to make a man complete. Many times I've wondered how much there is to know. Everybody's workin for the weekend. I don't wanna work, just wanna bang on the drums all day. But I need a dolla, dolla, dolla is what I need. Asking only workman's wages I come looking for a job. Whatever you want from me, I'll be your man. Keep me in mind. My work habit ain't no habit man I do it on purpose. I push myself to the limit so my talent will surface. Call me maybe.
Nothing lasts forever, even cold November rain. It would be so nice if we took a holiday. Take it easy. Long December, and there's reason to believe maybe this year will be better than the last. This is a time to remember, cause it will not last forever. So this is the new year and I don't feel any different. Dreams are like fish, you gots to keep on reeling.
