They Settled For Less Than They Wanted Lyrics

They were doing great they were young and keen, And
they sip root beer on the mezzanine
Coz they settled for less than they wanted

It was looking good, moving right along, They were
their own people singing their own song

But they settled for less than they wanted

CHORUS 1
How many people are making plans, no-one else can
understand
How many times can a joker beat an ace

How does it happen, where does it go, You fire it up,
then the engine blows, it's like

Someone turned a light off, I suppose...

VERSE 2
Picking the numbers, making the plans
The future was held in their very hands

But they settled for less than they wanted

VERSE 3
He was gonna be big, gonna be a star, But he married a
pig cos she had a car
And they settled for less than they wanted

He promised her kids and a bigger house, But soon the
man became a mouse

And they settled for less than they wanted

CHORUS 2
Up in the morning and off to work, Lifting the load for
any jerk
What ever happened to all the plans you had?

Where's the view, where's the dream, You say you got
tired, but what you mean

Is you got too lazy to stand up straight and scream

VERSE 4
He had an affair, with the au-pair
They couldn't be happy, they didn't care

So they settled for less than they wanted (Oh yeah...)

CHORUS 1
How many people are making plans, no-one else can
understand
How many times can a joker beat an ace

How does it happen, where does it go, You fire it up,
then the engine blows, it's like

Someone turned a light off, I suppose...

VERSE 5
What happened to Billy, what happened to Jane
Will I ever hang out with the gang again

Coz they settled for less than they wanted

They were doing great, they were young and keen

And they sip root beer on the mezzanine

Coz they settled for less than they wanted (Oh yeah...)
