  • Lyrics
  • You'll never change, neither will I, we'll stay the same till the days that we die.
    I'll never win, neither will you, so what in this world are we gonna do,
    People hate change, they make a fuss, they stay the same, people like us,
    Folks wanna win, when they can choose, but more important than that, folks don't wanna lose

    When did it start how did it go wrong
    Why in this world can't we get along
    Each victory should be good news,
    But when I have to win you're the one that I lose

    I wanna change but I don't know how
    We need to change though, I know that now
    Its sad but its true and I have to say, that the days that we die aren't that far away

    You'll never change neither will I
    We'll stay the same till the days that we die
    I'll never win, neither will you
    So what in this world are we gonna do?Writer/s: LOUDON WAINWRIGHT
