Everybody's wasting time.
Everybody stands in line.
Think of "Babe Ruth"

And you think of hot dogs and beer
But if he can hit a home run, so can 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 face.
Come last in the race, but

[chorus]
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.

The clock is ticking on the wall.
Everybody has to fall.
Think of "Ray Charles"
And you think of sun glasses at night.
But if he can play oiano, 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 wife
And do what you like, but

[chorus]

Think of "Babe Ruth"
And you think of hot dogs and beer
But if he can hit a home run, so can 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
