Woo

You're doin' everything your people said to
I'd hate to be the one to break it to you
It's only sad 'cause it's true
They misled you when they bred you
Somebody said some things they had no right to
Somehow they stuck, then you were known as someone who
Could simply not follow through if he had to
But you have to, don't you?

You don't have to be a genius but it helps to (It helps to)
Fools and charlatans, they may get wise
But only cream and bastards rise
Yeah you can see it in their eyes, oh

You followed good advices to the letter
You know your friend
He's doing so much better than you are ever likely to do
He'll eclipse you but he will not miss you

You don't have to be a genius but it helps to (It helps to)
All the also-rans are real nice guys
But only cream and bastards rise
People who could buy and sell you
Sharing a joke that they will never tell you
You think you're dialed in
Someone has to win, and you know what that means
It means someone's gotta lose
It's probably you, ooh woo ho ho ho
It's probably you, ooh woo ho ho ho
Ohh!

It's not a race, it's not a competition
And if it were you'd be in no position to
Get them to listen to you if you had to
Not even if your life depended on it

You don't have to be a genius but it helps to (It helps to)
Some are aliens, the rest are spies
But only cream and bastards rise
Yeah you can see it in their eyes, eyes

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha
