  • Don't sit around and complain about it

    I can't stand, waiting around to dance, uh-huh
    Don't wanna talk, already know what I want
    You got big plans but you never take a chance, uh-huh
    When will you stop wondering who you are?

    I showed you mine, now show me yours
    Are you down to get serious?
    Your wild life, coast to coast
    Make it last, let's take it slow

    I can't stand, waiting around to dance, uh-huh
    When will you stop and look at the one you got?

    You say you want to change this world
    Well, do you really believe in magic?
    But you can only change yourself
    Don't sit around and complain about it

    All your friends, they got the nicest things, uh-huh
    Travel a lot, I don't understand their job
    In suspense, slipping right through my hands, uh-huh
    When will you stop wondering what they thought?

    I showed you mine, now show me yours
    Are you down to get spiritual?
    Flying high, but I'm confused
    You weren't always dripping in jewels

    All of your friends, they got the nicest things, uh huh
    Just don't expect them to pick up the check

    You say you want to change this world
    Well, do you really believe in magic?
    But you can only change yourself
    Don't sit around and complain about it

    Now you're out on your own, don't know where you belong
    Don't sit around and complain about it
    You say you want to change this world
    Don't sit around and complain about it

    Don't sit around, sit around
    Don't sit around and complain, no (don't sit around)
    Don't sit around, sit around
    Don't sit around and complain about it

    You say you want to change this world
    Well, you must really believe in magic
    Stand up and show them who you are
    Don't sit around and complain about it

    Now you're out on your own, don't know where you belong
    Don't sit around and complain about it
    You say you want to change this world
    Don't sit around and complain about it Writer/s: Asa Taccone, Bonnie Leigh Mckee, David Quon, Lars Stalfors, Matthew Michael Compton, Nathan Andrew Willett
