Gotta Get A Goal

Play MP3
I know lots of sad old songs about being incomplete
For I often play the tunes that I have learned out on the street
And all the rhymes that balance victory with self-defeat
But I'd rather sing of something good to know: 
Like that you gotta get a goal--and then you gotta go!

        You gotta get a goal--
        then you gotta go!
        Yeah, you gotta get a goal 
        and then you gotta go!

I guess that's nothing new to say, you knew it all the time
And I should not be quite so proud of all the simple things I find
Cause you've got all the stuff you know and I'm just learning mine
But if you want to get beyond the status quo
You gotta get a goal--and then you gotta go!

        You gotta get a goal--
        then you gotta go!
        Yeah, you gotta get a goal  
        and then you gotta go!

Now if that's the secret of enlightenment I really cannot say
But it seems to work all right for me and that makes it okay
And I hope that you can use these words, the best that I can say
So my excuse for putting on this show 
Is that you gotta get a goal--and then you gotta go!
You just gotta get a goal--and then you gotta go!

        You gotta get a goal--
        then you gotta go!
        Yeah, you gotta get a goal 
        and then you gotta go!
