When we started we thought we were great
Tho' nobody else agreed
Just you and I wasting our time
Playing and singing out of key

And they said we played too loud
'Cos we didn't play for their crowd
We just told them, Wait and see

We had no money but still we went on
Trying to get some gear
A smashed up cymbal and an old snare drum
Our financial state was clear

And they said we should give up
They said we didn't have a hope
And we still told them, Wait and see

We worked harder got better in every way
Got some other friends involved
Pretty soon we found we knew how to play
We'd got all our problems solved

But I swear to this day
I could see you drifting away
But I told myself, Wait and see

Then came the day you said goodbye
We tried to smile but had to cry
You knew that you'd be missed
And we wished you all the best
But still we wished you would stay

Till then you were a part of everything
And everything that might have been
And now that everything has turned into what is
If you'd have waited you'd have seen

But you gave yourself the sack
Now there's no turning back
Now all your future's wait and see

You're not good enough, you're not good enough
You're not good enough to be a dance band, they told us
But we're not giving up, we're not giving up
We're not giving up, we'll show them
