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 come on here to me
I'm here to tell you about equal opportunity

There was a time when the world was fickle
And it may have been hard to succeed
Well, times have changed now
And school and training is what you really need
It doesn't matter who you may be
Everyone's equal with the same opportunity

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

Life's got problems, but you can make it
And I'm gonna 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

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

Good jobs are out there, just waiting to be found
But they won't come to you, uh uh!
You gotta get up and look around!

(repeat last 2 lines of verse 2, then chorus)

(repeat and fade):
Things are changing for the better
