[Valeria Andrews] If you wanna be somebody If you wanna go somewhere You better wake up and pay attention Hey...
So you think you've got the answers To all that lies ahead Well, in my mind I thought the same one time And I hear you spouting much talk 'Bout how you ain't being lead Ain't no one telling you what to do But attitude will catch up with you And keep you from your destiny
CHORUS: If you wanna be somebody If you wanna go somewhere You better wake up and pay attention When the time is now or never To make your dreams come true You gotta wake up and pay attention
[Ryan Toby] I ain't buyin' no more lyin' 'Cause truth don't cost a thing Denyin' what's inside's too much to pay It's 'bout sweatin' without stressin' There ain't no other way You know you can't get much without much givin' Oh, expect from yourself and you'll respect yourself You control your destiny
CHORUS X 2
Time to wake up, everybody Time to wake up, children Wake up, everybody (ooh...)
If you wanna be somebody (wake up) Go somewhere Wake up and pay attention When the time is now or never To make your dreams come true You gotta wake up and pay attention [fades out]
