LyricsEdit

Got an email at 22;
Told me I could be star.
On a plane for the first time,
I couldn't wait to start!

Landed at JFK,
Father Christmas picked me up.
Checked into a dream hotel, and I thought;
There's no such thing as luck.

I walked into my interview and I thought;
There’s no such thing as luck.
And oh, if I only knew then what I know now,
I’d stand like a one-man-band, and I'd say:
"All this is new to me but,
Here’s how it’s gonna be:"

And I'd say,
"Hey, there is more to me than meets the eye,
Let me be who I wanna be!"
And I’d say,
"Hey, I'm an oddity and that's all right,
Let me fly and follow my dreams!"

Then I'd say:
"Hey thanks for the weekend,
A good time was had by all."
And I’d say:
"Hey, thanks for the weekend,
I ain’t a smooth-talker,
But thanks for the Fiji water!"

"Thanks for the Fiji water!"

Dinner under a palm tree,
I had so much on my mind.
Amazed by the bright lights;
I stayed up half the night.

And boy I took a leap of faith,
With nowhere else to go but up.
I walked into my interview and I thought;
There's no such thing as luck.

And oh, if I only knew then what I know now.
I’d stand like a one-man-band and I'd say:
"All this is new to me but,
Here’s how it’s gonna be:"

And I'd say:
"Hey, there is more to me than meets the eye,
Let me be who I wanna be!"
And I’d say:
"Hey, I'm an oddity and that's all right,
Let me fly and follow my dreams!"

Then I'd say:
"Hey, thanks for the weekend.
A good time was had by all."
And I’d say:
"Hey, thanks for the weekend.
I ain’t a spin doctor, but thanks for the offer!
And by the way,
Hey, thanks for the weekend
You know I had a ball!"

And I’d say:
"Hey, thanks for the weekend.
I ain’t a smooth-talker,
But thanks for the Fiji water!"

"Thanks for the Fiji water!"

I laughed when I got back home, and I thought-
There’s no such thing as luck.

TriviaEdit
