Jim:
I wake up each day and wonder what for?
It seems to me there must be something more
Something more than stacks of dishes, and washing this old floor
If I had my pick of wishes, I'd wish me out that door
'Cause I'm hungry for adventure, and I'm fed up with this grind
If I don't get some excitement soon, I'm gonna lose my mind
I want a life that's filled with thrills, that's wild and free
There's gotta be something better
Something better
There's gotta be something better than this for me

I look around here and I want to cry
Rizzo:
(me too)
Jim:
I feel like the world is passing me by
Gonzo:
(it is)
Jim:
And I just can't help but wonder
Am I doomed to wash and dry
And is it a curse I'm under to do it 'til I die?
Gonzo:
(well, I hope not)
Rizzo:
(yeah)
Jim:
When I could be an explorer
Gonzo:
(sure you could!)
Jim:
Sailing off to distant lands
Rizzo:
(not so fast)
Jim:
Instead of spending every afternoon just getting dish pan hands
My future looks like nowhere that I want to be
There's gotta be something better
Something better
There's gotta be something better than this for me
Gonzo:
(Now, you're talking!)
If it's weird and wild let's go and find it (ha ha ha ha!)
The crazier, the better, is what I say
Rizzo:
(yeah, that's true)
To tell the truth I really wouldn't mind it
Gonzo:
(Mind what?)
Rizzo:
If we found someplace with ten square meals a day!
Jim:
Let danger call my name
Rizzo:
If it does, I'm gonna hide...
Jim:
I'll put my courage to the test
Gonzo:
And I'll be by your side
Rizzo:
He'll be by your side!
All:
There's gotta be something better than this
(something more than this)
I know that there's so much out there to see
(To see)
And I know this life I'm living can't be my destiny
(Destiny)
There's gotta be something better
Something better
There's gotta be something better than this for me
(and me)
(wait a minute, what about me?)
There's something better than this for you and me!
