  • There's a lot of things I want
    A lot of things that I'd like to be
    But girl, I don't foresee
    A rags to riches story for me
    There's just one little dream
    I've got to make come true
    There's just one round I've got to win
    I can't be a loser with you

    And baby, baby
    Just once in my life
    Let me get what I want
    Girl, don't let me down
    Just once in my life
    Let me hold on to
    The good thing I've found
    Don't let me down
    Baby, say that you'll be stayin'

    That old pot of gold
    Ain't so easy to find
    But if you'll stand by me
    Oh, girl, I'll keep peace of mind
    I can't give you the world (no, no, no)
    Oh, but I will work hard for you, girl (I'll work so hard, yeah)
    Honey, I will work hard (every day)
    All my life (you will see)
    If you won't leave me (baby, don't leave)
    Please don't leave me (baby, don't leave)
    Just do this for me, baby

    Once in my life
    Let me get what I want
    Girl, don't let me down
    Just once in my life
    Let me hold on to
    The good thing I've found
    Don't let me down
    Baby, say that you'll be stayin'
    Baby, say that you'll be stayin'
    Just once in my life
