Don't make me sad
Talkin' about tomorrow
It's not so bad
We were doing fine just then
Move on up, you'll move on out
And you won't cry
'Cause your amateur hour is over
You're only going where I've been
And you'll see what I've seen

You're no amateur
Amateur
You know if someone likes your face
You'd be a fool to stay strictly amateur
It's strictly for amateurs
The world could be a better place
If some of us could stay
Amateurs

There's no more time
To think about the way ahead
Just miss one line
Fall over, you'll be left for dead
Your heart will play no part except
When memories of your amateur hour take over
Then screw yourself into a ball
And keep it rollin' on

You're no amateur
Amateur
You know if someone likes your face
You'd be a fool to stay strictly amateur
It's strictly for amateurs
The world could be a better place
If some of us could stay
Amateurs

Don't make me sad
It's not so bad
