[Chorus:] Look at the average person Speak to the man in the street Can you imagine the first one you'd meet?
Well, I'm talking to a former engine driver Trying to find out what he used to do Tells me that he always kept his engine Spit and polished up as good as new But he said his only great ambition Was to work with lions in a zoo Oh to work with lions in a zoo Yes dear, you heard right Told me his ambition was to work with lions every night
Well, I met a woman working as a waitress I asked exactly what it was she did Said she worked the summer crowd at seasides Winter time she ran away and hid Once she had a Hollywood audition But the part was given to a kid Yes,the part was given to a kid Yes sir, you heard it right Hollywood ambition made a starlet grown up overnight
Well I bumped into a man who'd been a boxer Asked him what had been his greatest night He looked into the corners of his memory Searching for a picture of the fight But he said he always had a feeling That he lacked a little extra height (Could have used a little extra height) Yes mate, you heard right He always had a feeling that he might have lacked a little height
Look at the average person Speak to the man in the queue Can you imagine the first one is you?
