When I was a young boy in my early teens
My heart started falling for a girl named Jean
I never got the courage up to let her know
Jean wound up falling for a boy named Joe.

You've got to take some action put some motion to the plan
You've got to take some action make your move while you still can
You can twiddle-y dee or twiddle-y dum
Nothing's gonna happen just a twiddling your thumbs
You've got to take some action take some action.

Now Harry he was married to his work and his wife
Had to decide which was first in his life
He traded some money for some more time at home
Now his wife calls him honey the romance is back on.

You've got to take some action if you want love to work
You've got to take some action give it even when it hurts
You can twiddle-y dee or twiddle-y dum
Nothing's gonna happen just a twiddling your thumbs
You've got to take some action take some action.

Now grandma and grandpa they might look old
But they never did let their love get cold
They keep the fire burning in that old stove
They've spent a lifetime a learning how to stoke the coals.

They know to take some action put some motion to the plan
You've got to take some action make your move while you still can
You can twiddle-y dee or twiddle-y dum
Nothing's gonna happen just a twiddling your thumbs
You've got to take some action take some action.

If you want satisfaction take some action...
