I like walkin' in the park late at night
Tryin' to run my motor down
Everybody says I live a dangerous life
I've got to get ahead somehow
Out here on the street just tryin' to get my own
Don't tell me what you think you know
Ooh, most people spend their time at home alone
Just waitin' for a check that won't show

Chorus:
Takin' chances
No risk, no gain
Takin' chances
I really don't mind the pain
Takin' chances
If you only knew
Takin' chances
It's all for the love of you

I don't like to listen to what people say (uh-huh)
Cause once you start you'll never stop
One advantage to doing things my own way
I'll always end up on top

Chorus

Bridge:
I've got to do it right, ooh I've got to
I've got to live my life the way I want to
I'm high up on a wire, don't wanna ever come down
And if I fall I've got to fly

Chorus
