Great Expectations Lyrics

Seems everyday

I'm gettin' harder pressed

To find a reason to shave

 

Watchin' the hours

 

Just slippin' away

 

No motivation to get out of bed

And carry on the charade

 

Caught in a dream that's goin' astray

Oh all those great expectations

 

Seems they never work out never work out

The way that I plan

 

All those great expectations

 

Why they never work out never work out

I can't understand

 

And just when I think

That things are goin' right

I get a call from L A

 

Sorry to say "we're changin' your song"

 

I try to reason

But I can't get through

They're gonna do it their way

 

What can I say

 

They've never been wrong

 

Oh all those great expectations

 

Seems they never work out never work out

The way that I plan

 

All those great expectations

 

Why they never work out never work out

I can't understand

 

Life is just a game of chance

 

I think somebody said so

 

Sometimes you get a hula hoop

 

Sometimes you get an Edsel

 

Oh all those great expectations

 

Seems they never work out never work out

The way that I plan

 

All those great expectations

 

Why they never work out never work out

I can't understand
