Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Shooting for the stars when I couldn't make a killing
Didn't have a dime, but I always had a vision
Always had high, high hopes

Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Didn't know how, but I always had a feeling
I was gonna be that one in a million
Always had high, high hopes

Mama said: Fulfill the prophecy
Be something greater, go make a legacy
Manifest destiny, back in the days
We wanted everything, wanted everything

Mama said: Burn your biographies
Rewrite your history, light up your wildest dreams
Museum victories, everyday
We wanted everything, wanted everything

Mama said: Don't give up
It's a little complicated
All tied up, no more love
And I'd hate to see you waiting

Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Shooting for the stars when I couldn't make a killing
Didn't have a dime, but I always had a vision
Always had high, high hopes

Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Didn't know how, but I always had a feeling
I was gonna be that one in a million
Always had high, high hopes

Mama said: It's uphill for oddities
The stranger crusaders ain't ever wannabes
The weird and the novelties don't ever change
We wanted everything, wanted everything

Stay up on that rise, stay up on that rise
And never come down, oh
Stay up on that rise, stay up on that rise
And never come down

Mama said: Don't give up
It's a little complicated
All tied up, no more love
And I'd hate to see you waiting

They say it's all been done
But they haven't seen the best of me, eh, eh, eh
So I got one more run
And it's gonna be a sight to see, eh, eh, eh

Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Shooting for the stars when I couldn't make a killing
Didn't have a dime, but I always had a vision
Always had high, high hopes

Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Didn't know how, but I always had a feeling
I was gonna be that one in a million
Always had high, high hopes

Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Shooting for the stars when I couldn't make a killing
Didn't have a dime, but I always had a vision
Always had high, high hopes

Had to have high, high hopes for a living
Didn't know how, but I always had a feeling
I was gonna be that one in a million
Always had high, high hopes
