Room At The Top

Album: Manners & Physique (1990)
Charted: 13 17
  • Once is never enough
    Never is never was
    Here and now is all that counts
    Here and now in large amounts

    Be beautiful but shut up
    The going can be real tough
    You can keep your fancy bars
    Clubby friends and fast cars

    And when the going gets hard
    You can eat your credit cards
    I really tried to fight it
    But what the hell I like it

    There is always room at the top
    Don't let them tell you there is not
    Made in England born and bred
    An eighteenth century brain

    In a twenty first century head
    Room at the top -- so eighteenth century
    Room at the top -- so eighteenth century
    Room at the top

    There's always room
    If some of this fits some of you
    Or like the things that you might do
    It's the pleasure and the pain

    That makes us do it all again
    They say
    Be beautiful and shut up
    The going can be real tough Writer/s: ANDRE CYMONE, STUART LESLIE GODDARD, MARCO PIRRONE

  • Chris from Germany one of his biggest hits in the US but i dont like it
    it sounds like SHE DRIVES ME CRAZY by FINE YOUNG CANNIBALS
  • Zabadak from London, EnglandThis was something of a comeback for Adam, on a new label (MCA as opposed to CBS).
