I want to be a boss
I want to boss the world around
That ever bossed the world around
I want to do it right
I want to do it right now
I want to do it now
Don't want to be a dancer in the Bolshoi Ballet
In daddy's shop, 0K
I get a pain, I get a pain up here in the Shirley Temples
What you gonna do
What you gonna do

Little by little, bit by bit
Sssh, not too loud, don't tell everybody
Oh, I ain't quite ready to reveal my campaign
This is not the time
I'm keeping them on ice in suspended animation

Come along to our rally
To our rally come along
Come along to our rally come along
A Brave new world will rise from the ashes
I'll cast a giant shadow on the face of the deep
A freckled, spotty, specky, four eyed, weedy, little creep
No more tremblin' and quakin' in the gym

How you gonna do it
How you gonna do it
Little by little, ooh
Little by little, ooh, ooh
Bit by bit, bit by bit
Everyone's going to be free
They'll have to agree to be less free than me
So wait for the army of kiddy-winkies
In armored school buses
And sinking their milk teeth into your thighs

I want to be a big boss
I want to be the biggest boss
