Boy it's tough getting on in the world
When the sun doesn't shine and a boy needs a girl
It's about getting out of a rut, you need luck
But you're stuck and you don't know how, oh

(Don't have to be) A big bucks Hollywood star
(Don't have to drive) A super car to get far
(Don't have to live) A life of power and wealth
(Don't have to be) Beautiful but it helps
(Don't have to buy) A house in Beverly Hills
(Don't have to have) Your daddy paying the bills
(Don't have to live) A life of power and wealth
(Don't have to be) Beautiful but it helps

You need more
Than a big blank check to be a lover, or
A Gulfstream jet to fly you door to door
Somewhere chic on another shore

You need more You need more You need more
You need more You need more You need more
You need love
You need love
You need love

Too much of anything
Is never enough
Too much of everything
Is never enough

Boy it's tough getting on in the world
When the sun doesn't shine and a boy needs a girl
It's about getting out of a rut, you need luck
But you're stuck and you don't know how, oh

(Don't have to be) A big bucks Hollywood star
(Don't have to drive) A super car to get far
(Don't have to wear) A smile much colder than ice
(Don't have to be) Beautiful but it's nice

You need more
Than the Gerhard Richter hangin' on your wall
A chauffeur-driven limousine on call
To drive your wife and lover to a white tie ball

You need more You need more You need more
You need more You need more You need more
You need love

I believe that we can achieve
The love that we need
I believe, call me naпve
Love is for free

(Don't have to be) A big bucks Hollywood star
(Don't have to drive) A super car to get far
(Don't have to live) A life of power and wealth
(Don't have to be) Beautiful but it helps
Beautiful but it helps
Beautiful but it helps
