Stop right there this is getting so unfair. You’ve got to let me catch me breath while I try not to stutter and try not to stare. Ooh boy, get out before you make me scream and shout cause I know by now, no way no how, beyond a shadow of a doubt that Oh I’m never gonna get to you and there’s nothing I can do You’re just another pretty face just another sad case of the shivers and the jitters and the heartbeat race and you’ve got your woman and I know my place so what they gotta give you such a damn pretty face? VERSE 2 Now I swear it was not my plan to want another woman’s man, but my heart made up it’s mind it was gonna become your numner one fan. My love is so white hot it would burn down everything that she’s got but you want her, and I’m just a blur. What does she do that I do not? Oh yeah, my pain is the price I pay. Maybe I like it, maybe I like it this way. I’d hijack a limousine I’d make a new flying machine I’d jump from a speeding train dressing in high heels and cellophane I’d rescue you on a milk-white steed I’d learn to be all the things you need I’d up the anti, I’d cross the line, You got to me mine You got to me mine You got to me mine You got to me mine Oh but I’m never gonna get to you And my heart is turning so black and blue. Is there nothing Is there nothing I can do? You’re just another pretty face just another sad case of the shivers and the jitters and the heartbeat race and you’ve got your woman and I know my place so what they gotta give you such a damn pretty face? You’re just another pretty face You’re just another pretty face You’re just another pretty face You’re just another pretty face just another sad case of the shivers and the jitters and the heartbeat race and you’ve got your woman and I know my place so what they gotta give you such a damn pretty

How did you get here? By land or by sea? By want or need or serendipity? How did you get here? What gave you the gall to steal land and people and not care at all? But you’re here and so am I And no one can tell us the reasons why Cause we are not special or holy or high And I don’t know where we’d be If the gates hadn’t opened for you and me. How did we get here? Locks on the doors What’s mine is mine There ain’t enough for yours. How did we get here? Deaf dumb and blind Pretending those people aren’t humankind. But I’m here and so are you And it’s plain and simple what we oughta do Cause we were just lucky And they are just new And I don’t know where we’d be If the gates hadn’t opened for you and me. How did I get here? On the back of a dream On dirt and despair and ocean liner steam How did I get here? With a helping hand From strangers and saviors who understand That we’re here and so are they And where there’s a will There’s always a way Cause once we were all just where they are today On our knees at the Golden Door Built on labor and land that was never paid for Tell me where would we be O Land of the Free If the gates hadn’t opened for you and me?
