Wake up, Major, a stitch on your hat,
You fell out of bed and then you landed in the cash,
So what's in your diary today?

Call on your main man
What can he do for you?
Hang out with stupid, so you can tell him what to do
Major this is your day

Living alone in a jar
Never gets you very far

He can read your mind
Make you feel all right
Sgt Major knows what you want
He knows what you are
One day you'll be a star
Yeah the Major knows what you want

Take out your paper and throw it away
Everything is useless, ain't got a lot to say
And Major this is your way

The Major is drownin coz he opened his mouth
Starts to explain it but nothin's comin out
Major what can you say?

I hope that you like who you are
Coz living alone in a jar
Never gets you very far

He can read your mind
Make you feel alright
Sgt Major knows what you want
He knows what you are
One day you'll be a star
Yeah the Major knows what you want

I know you think that you made it
I know what i meant to say
While you looked in the mirror
I was gettin away
To you there is nothing to say

He can read your mind
Make you feel alright
Sgt Major knows what you want
He knows what you are
One day you'll be a star
Yeah the Major knows what you want

Wooowooo
Wooowooo

    I actually love this song. I don't understand why Jet aren't as widely respected as bands like The Beatles. They're amazing.
