Everybody's wasting time
Everybody stands in line
Think of babe ruth
And you think of hot dogs and beer
But if he could hit a home run so could you
And your weight is just nowhere near
Am I making myself quite clear?

Is that the best you can do?
Go for it, go for it, go for it, go for it
If that's the best you can do
Get out of my place
Take anyone's place
Come last in the race, but
Go for it, go for it, go for it, go for it

The clock is ticking on the wall
Everybody has to take a fall
Think of ray charles
And you think of sunglasses at night
But if he can play piano so can you
And you can tell black from white
Can you tell me that I'm not right?

Is that the best you can do?
Go for it, go for it, go for it, go for it
If that's the best you can do
Get out of my life
Be anyone's life
And do what you like, but
Go for it, go for it, go for it, go for it

Go for it, go for it, go for it, go for it
Go for it, go for it, go for it, go for it
Go for it, go for it, go for it, go for it

Think of babe ruth
And you think of hot dogs and beer
But if he could hit a home run so could you
And your weight is just nowhere near
Am I making myself quite clear?

Is that the best you can do?
Go for it, go for it, go for it, go for it
If that's the best you can do
Get out of your shell, be anyone's pal
Do bad or do well, but
Go for it, go for it, go for it, go for it
