Change It! Words and Music by Bill Pere

I really wish the world were spinning in reverse
So life is getting better when it's really getting worse
And everything that's wrong is gone and all that's left is right,
And day is night

I hate the food I get at school, there's too much work to do
Mystery meat and gruel and on my test, a fifty-two
The same old stuff is on TV and life is just a bore
And my brothers snore!
 
If you don't like it Change It! Don't just take it lying down
If it doesn't suit you, rearrange it
Don't stand there complaining, Change It!
If you don't like it, Change It! Be in charge of your own life
There's no magic, nothing strange,
If it's not the way you want it, Change It!

My dog has stinky breath and he's peeing on the rug
And my cousin Elmo's coming, Mom will make me give hug
There's asparagus for dinner but I'd rather have dessert
And my new shoes hurt!

It's cold outside and Dad will make me wear that awful scarf
With chartreuse color polka-dots that make me want to barf
The cheese fell of my pizza, now my lap has a red spot
And it was hot!

If you don't like it Change It! Don't just take it lying down
If it doesn't suit you, rearrange it
Don't stand there complaining, Change It!
If you don't like it, Change It! You can speak up, use your voice
Life has lots of glasses all half empty or half full,
Your choice!

My sister took my underwear and ran it up a tree,
Now I'm full of splinters in places I can't see
I can't get anybody to do anything for me
And nothing's free!

There's a new zit on my nose and there's a wart on my big toe
The questions on my science test were things I didn't know
I wish that I were rich but my allowance is a joke
I'm always broke!

If you don't like it Change It! Don't just take it lying down
If it doesn't suit you, rearrange it
Don't stand there complaining, Change It!

If you don't like it, Change It! Be in charge of your own life
There's no magic, nothing strange,
If it's not the way you want it, Change It!

If you don't like it, Change It! You can speak up, use your voice
Life has lots of glasses all half empty or half full
Your choice!
