Come around cryin' that you just can't win.
You thought 'this one was different' now it's gone again.
You just can't believe, baby.
"Why's it happenin' to me?"
Now...

You step out on the track in the pouring rain,
When you get run over will you blame the train?
You just can't deny, baby,
Life is passing you by, baby.

Don't you think you've had enough?
Ain't it time to get a different view?
You can't just wait around for what you want.
It's all about the way you choose.
Ain't nobody else that can make things right.
Baby, it's down to you.

Everywhere you look they're trying' to do you in.
You just can't understand, they used to be your friend.
It's always the same, baby.
Someone else is to blame, baby.

Still don't got a clue to where it all goes down
'Cause what you're dishing out is coming back around.
Same old song, baby.
It's gone all too long

Don't'cha think that you've had enough?
Ain't it time to get a different view.
You can't just wait around for what you want.
It's all about the way you choose.
Ain't nobody else that can make things right.
Baby, it's down to you.

Down to you...

Don't'cha think that you've had enough?
Ain't it time to get a different view.
Can't just wait around for what you want.
It's all about the way you choose.
Ain't nobody else that can make things right.
Baby, it's down to you.

Down to you, honey...
