Ambitious
By Jeff Beck
Here is a rich boy, a bit of a brat,
To him life's just a fling.
Phi Beta Kappa and first in his class,
He's treated just like a king.
And he says, "I'm not sure what it is I must have
So I guess I'll just take everything".
He's just ambitious,
He's not a bad man,
He's just ambitious.
He's not a bad man,
Just ambitious.
Whooah, yeah!
Just ambitious.
Here is a young girl, born down and out,
Locked up in jail when she was ten.
Now in the courtroom, she's got a bit of doubt,
Sits on the judge side of the bench.
She's just ambitious,
She's not a bad girl,
She's just ambitious.
She's not a bad girl,
Just ambitious.
Whooah, yeah!
Just ambitious.
Here is a wild man who thirsts for a fight,
And his cool streak gets him by.
All these four-letter words in his mind,
Here is a man who'll survive.
He's just ambitious,
He's just a wild man,
He's just ambitious.
He's just a wild man,
Just ambitious.
Whooah, yeah!
Just ambitious.
Here is a wild man who thirsts for a fight,
Just ambitious.
Always a four-letter word in his mind,
Just ambitious.
Don't you know, I'm just ambitious,
I'm not a bad man, just ambitious.
I'm not a bad man, just ambitious.
Whooah, yeah!
Just ambitious.
I'm not a bad man, just ambitious.
I'm not a bad man, just ambitious.
I'm not a bad man, just ambitious.
