I just can't seem to take much more of this
Got too much hassle, baby and not enough bliss
Got to give these hangers on a miss
'Cos I need some help, I just don't get

No one seems to understand what's up, what's up
What's up, so called friends come and go and things
Just don't add up, trying to make my way through
All this illusion and myth, I don't even have no safety net

Nero fiddled while Rome burnt
Napoleon met his Waterloo
Samson went spare when Delilah cut his hair
But little David slew Goliath too, oh yeah

I'm just trying to get some results
Listen baby, I'm not trying to start my own cult
Please tell me something that I don't know
I just wanna get on with the show

Nero fiddled while Rome burnt
Napoleon met his Waterloo
Samson went spare when Delilah cut his hair
But little David slew Goliath too

You'd think some program might do the trick
Let me tell you, this wall of fog is just too thick
I thought of everything but the whip
But baby, nobody on my ship is up to it

I'm just trying to get some results, some results
I'm not trying to start my own cult
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Just tell me something that I don't know
I just wanna get on with the show

Gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta
I just wanna get on with the show
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Just tell me something that I don't know

I just wanna get on with the show
It is better don't wait than let her go
