lyrics

Start at the Start

Takin' me lots of time to find a nice friend - woo
Baby it's a long way to friendship
Mr. Saturn he always hangin' around
He know everybody in every town
Always tryin' to show me somethin'
Teachin' me this - teachin' me that
It's pullin' me down - oh!
Pullin' me down

Now I'm one verse older
I need a friend bad - woo
Baby it's a long-long way hey oh
Mr. Saturn he doesn't give me any friends
From the last row I watch everyone a go-go
You don't even realize that you dance so professional
Make a career out of dancing

You should have your own show - whoa!
Have your own show

Someday I hope to reach the point
Where I can start at the start
I need a brand new will
I need a heart

I need a friend
I need a friend so bad
Can any of you be my friend and play with me?
I'm crying every day no one likes me
Where can I go to have a friend now?
I didn't want it
You could of had it
Why do I meet the wrong one?
Why am I always seeing number one
In of all these situations?
I'll be very alone and free
Alone and free!

Someday I hope to reach the point
Where I can start at the start
I need a brand new will
And a brand new heart - heart

Can I play?
Can I play?
I wanna play
Can I play too?
Can I play?
Can I play?
Can I play?

Sure if you march and you dance
and you march dance
March dance
March dance
March dance
March dance
March dance
March dance
March dance
March dance
March dance
March dance
March dance
March dance
March dance
March dance
and we'll shoot cap guns at your feet
Salute!
