It's a tug of war
What with one thing and another
It's a tug of war

We expected more
But with one thing and another
We were trying to outdo each other
In a tug of war

In another world
In another world
We could stand on top of the mountain
With our flag unfurled

In a time to come
In a time to come
We will be dancing to the beat played
On a different drum

It's a tug of war
Though I know I mustn't grumble
It s a tug of war

But I can't let go
If I do you'll take a tumble
And the whole thing is going to crumble
It's a tug of war

Pushin', pushin', pullin', pullin'
Pushin', pullin'

In years to come they may discover
What the air we breathe and the life we lead
Are all about

But it won't be soon enough
(Soon enough)
Soon enough for me
No, it won't be soon enough
(It won't be soon enough for me)
Soon enough for me

In another world
We could stand on top of the mountain
With our flag unfurled

In a time to come
We will be dancing to the beat played
On a different drum

We will be dancing to the beat
Played on a different drum
We will be dancing to the beat
Played on a different drum

It's a tug of war
(A tug of war, a tug of war)
What with one thing and another
It's a tug of war

We expected more
But with one thing and another
We were trying to outscore each other
In a tug of war

Pushin', pushin' pullin', pullin'
Pushin', pullin'
