Your're sitting on a milk mornin' noon and night
You're lookin' pretty good and you've got yourself conviced

And a plastic bag is all you've got to show
Is probably the best education you're ever gonna know (Hmm)
The guy in the Mercedes is just hard on with the dollar
And while you're at it put the jug behind the picket fence

Doesn't mean a thing to you now
For your audience are driving by
So maybe you should stand and take a bow
And you never have felt complete

(Scatting by Scatman John)
You want to go home
But there ain't no home but home on the range
That the look inside your eye is very strange

Is a hole a mile wide
And the perfect living model
Of a land that hasn't any good excuse
And you never have felt complete

(Scatting by Scatman John)
I see you sitting day after day
I really like to talk but I know if I approached you
You're wishin' that your home of the American dream

You let me know how much I really lost
And you never have felt complete
You live in anticipation
(Scatting by Scatman John)

You live in anticipation
(Scatting by Scatman John)
