She was a happy child Funny and bright and wild And all of the grown-ups agreed She was "Most Likely To Succeed In Ruling the World!"
Now she calls you on the phone She's never there alone Who is he, why is he there, that man? She steals everything she can Easily buy it - "Mother, Can you send some cash?"
Here, World Domination Rules Get in line with these fools We'll show you how much it costs Twice as much as we've lost This is no way to live And I have no more to give
Til she's got her Feet On The Ground Life is a merry-go-round Taking her up so high The angels cry She's got her Feet On The Ground
Life is a merry-go-round Taking her up so high The angels cry The story goes on and on Nobody's right or wrong
There somebody's aunt Somebody's dad, They spent the last dollar they had Trying to bring someone home You, you call her on the phone You're always here alone.
A daily reminder of what it's cost How much you've given, How much you've lost Trying to save her- I'll just send you the cash.
Now world domination's lost. And this is what it costs. Twice as much as we've had But daddy, it's not that bad How does she survive Why is she left alive?
Til she's got her Feet on the ground Life is a merry-go-round Taking her up so high The angels cry
But she's gonna get her Feet On The Ground Life is a merry-go-round Taking her up so high That you hear the angels cry
