  • Girls, have you got the kind of man everyone looks up to?
    Well, if you don't, listen. I'll tell you what to do.
    Get your man, take him by the hand, and bring him here to me;
    And I'm going to tell you about equal opportunity.

    There was a time when the world was fickle
    And it may have been hard to succeed
    But times have changed now, and school and training
    Is all you really need

    It doesn't matter who you may be
    Everyone's equal with the same opportunity, yes

    CHORUS:
    Things are changing for the better
    Things are changing for the better
    Now's the time for you to better yourself

    Ooh
    Life's got problems, but you can make it
    And I'm going to tell you why
    Just like the early bird that catches the worm,
    You gotta get up, go out, and try

    Your race or color won't stand in your way
    Don't wait for tomorrow, today is your day, yes

    CHORUS

    Good jobs are out there
    (Things are changing)
    Just waiting to be found.
    (Things are changing)
    They won't come to you, oh no.
    You gotta go out and look around.

    Your race or color won't stand in your way
    Don't wait for tomorrow, today is your day, oh

    CHORUS

    I said

    Things are changing for the better
    Things are changing for the better

  • Teresa from Mechelen, BelgiumNot easy being a Phil Spector's fan living in Belgium. When I'm looking for a Spector's cd I go to different shops in Brussels to hear finally
    "Not available in Belgium, we can get it for you, but it takes at least a month". That's the way I got Phil Spector's "Back to Mono", "Greatest Hits" from The Teddy Bears and Phil Spector's
    "Flips and Rarities". I would like to have this one too, so if anyone can help me ... it would really be great. A Belgian Phil Spector's fan.
