Hard working man, he's got his hopes set high
The city pays him so the rich don't cry, his
Practice of settlement will keep their pockets full, but
There in the end he never got used to it

Sometimes I feel like I wanna die
It's starting up
I'm sure that I'll get used to anything but this

And all the wait-and-see's
They never really came to me
Should I hide-and-seek?
My mother taught me not to cheat

Oh, would you shut him up?
Oh, would you please shut up?
'Cause I'm starting up
Upstart, you know I'm down
For anything I've missed

Now it's starting to get old and he's getting pretty tired
Only living his life on the sunny side
He's got a real sweet lady, gonna soon make her his wife
But this money-making mindset has put a thorn in his side, you know

Sometimes I feel like I'm gonna cry
It's starting up
Not sure that I'll get used to anything like this

And all the wait-and-see's
They never really came to me
Should I hide-and-seek?
My brothers taught me how to cheat
Oh, did I

Oh, would you shut him up?
Oh, would you please shut up?
'Cause I'm starting up
Upstart, you know I'm down
For anything I've missed

Whoa-oh, would you shut him up?
Oh, would you please shut up?
'Cause I'm starting up
Upstart, you know I'm down
For anything I've missed

He says, "I miss those days when the going was easy
Got a soda in my hand and my pocketbook's empty"
Says, "I wanna go to heaven, but I ain't in a hurry
Love the land and all we fools and know that God is my witness"

Sometimes I feel I can't get started up
Left my heart in my stomach so I feel ill everyday

The wait-and-see's
They never really came to me
Should I hide-and-seek?
My brothers taught me how to cheat
We are the fools and we're running this town
So let's listen to Bob Dylan and watch the walls falling down

Right now!
Oh, would you shut him up?
Oh, would you please shut up?
'Cause I'm starting up
Upstart, you know I'm down
For anything I've missed

Right now!
Oh, would you shut him up?
Oh, would you please shut up?
'Cause I'm starting up
Upstart, you know I'm down
For anything I've missed
Yeah!
