Opportunity
Lyrics to Opportunity
Born in the middle of a second big baby boom
Those noisy boys just might have spoken up too soon
Now I`m looking for a little girl, I wonder where she`s gone
Big money for families having more than one
Opportunity, opportunity
This is your big opportunity
They shop around
Follow you without a sound
Whatever you do now
Don`t turn around
Whatever happened to the pride of the nation?
They say, “just wait until you break formation”
She was sitting pretty on a velvet cushion
But her bedroom eyes were like a button she was pushing
She said, “When they get to Dover they`ll be be taking over”
I said I`d come to her defense and then she pulled me over
[Chorus:]
I`m in the foxhole, I`m down in the trench
I`d be a hero but I can`t stand the stench
The Fitness Institute was full of General Motormen
And the “Hello House of Beauty” wouldn’t stand a chance with them
The chairman of this boredom is a company collector
I`d like to be his funeral director
[Chorus]
Please don`t turn around
Opportunity Lyrics
