Oh, no, no, no, no, no…

When you feel it in your body
You found somebody who makes you change your ways
Like hanging with your crew
Said you act like you’re ready
But you don’t really know
And everything in your past – you wanna let it go

I’ve been there, done it, fucked around
After all that – this is what I found
Nobody wants to be alone
If you’re touched by the words in this song
Then baby…

U got, u got it bad
When you’re on the phone
Hang up and you call right back
U got, u got it bad
If you miss a day without your friend
Your whole life’s off track
You know you got it bad when you’re stuck in the house
You don’t wanna have fun
It’s all you think about
U got it bad when you’re out with someone
But you keep on thinkin’ bout somebody else
U got it bad

When you say that you love ’em
And you really know
Everything that used to matter, don’t matter no more
Like my money, all my cars
(You can have it all back)
Flowers, cards and candy
(I do it just cause I’m…)
Said I’m fortunate to have you girl
I want you to know
I really adore you
All my people who know what’s going on
Look at your mate, help me sing my song
Tell her I’m your man, you’re my girl
I’m gonna tell it to the whole wide world
Ladies say I’m your girl, you’re my man
Promise to love you the best I can

See I’ve been there, done it, fucked around
After all that – this is what I found
Everyone of y’all are just like me
It’s too bad that you can’t see
That you got it bad…hey

U got, u got it bad
When you’re on the phone
Hang up and you call right back
U got, u got it bad
If you miss a day without your friend
Your whole life’s off track
You know you got it bad when you’re stuck in the house
You don’t wanna have fun
It’s all you think about
U got it bad when you’re out with someone
But you keep on thinkin’ bout somebody else
U got it bad

[breakdown]

U got, u got it bad
When you’re on the phone
Hang up and you call right back
U got, u got it bad
If you miss a day without your friend
Your whole life’s off track
You know you got it bad when you’re stuck in the house
You don’t wanna have fun
It’s all you think about
U got it bad when you’re out with someone
But you keep on thinkin’ bout somebody else
U got it bad

[Verse 1:]
Back when I had a little
I thought that I needed a lot
A little was over rated,
but a lot was a little too complicated
You see-Zero didn’t satisfy me
A million didn’t make me happy
That’s when I learned a lesson
That it’s all about your perception
Hey-are you a pauper or a superstar
So you act, so you feel, so you are
It ain’t about the size of your car
It’s about the size of the faith in your heart

[Chorus:]
There’s hope
It doesn’t cost a thing to smile
You don’t have to pay to laugh
You better thank God for that
[repeat]

There’s hope

[Verse 2:]
Off in the back country of Brazil A met a young brother that made me feel
That I could accomplish anything.
You see just like me he wanted to sing
He had no windows and no doors
He lived a simple life and was extremely poor
On top of all of that he had no eye sight,
but that didn’t keep him from seein’ the light
He said, what’s it like in the USA,
and all I did was complain
He said-livin’ here is paradise
He taught me paradise is in your mind
You know that

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
Every time I turn on the T.V. (There’s Hope)
Somebody’s acting crazy (There’s Hope)
If you let it, it will drive you crazy (There’s Hope)
but I’m takin’ back my power today (There’s Hope)
Gas prices they just keep on rising (There’s Hope)
The government they keep on lying
but we gotta keep on surviving
Keep living our truth and do the best we can do

[Chorus]

Stand up for your rights [echo]
Keep shining your light [echo]
And show the world your smile [echo]

[Chorus]
