The Muppets — Something Better lyrics

(Jim)
I look around here and I want to cry
I feel like the world is passing me by.
And I just can't help but wonder
If I'm doomed to wash and dry
And is it a curse I'm under to do it 'til I die?
When I could be an explorer, sailing off to distant lands
Instead of spending every afternoon just getting dish pan hands.
I want a life that's filled with things both wild and free,
There's gotta be something better
Something better
There's gotta be something better than this for me.
I look around here and wonder what for?
It seems to me there must be something more
Something more than stacks of dishes, and washing this old floor.
If I had my pick of wishes, I'd wish me out that door.
'Cause I'm hungry for adventure, and I'm fed up with this grind.
If I don't get some excitement soon, I'm gonna lose my mind.
My future looks like nowhere that I want to be,
There's gotta be something better
Something better
There's gotta be something better than this for me.
(Gonzo)
Hey! If it's weird and wild let's go and find it ha ha ha ha!
The crazier, the better, is what I say
(Rizzo)
To tell the truth I really wouldn't mind it
(Gonzo)
Mind what?
(Rizzo)
If we found someplace with ten square meals a day!
(Jim)
Let danger call my name
(Rizzo)
If it does, I'm gonna hide...
(Jim)
I'll put my courage to the test,
(Gonzo)
And I'll be by your-
(Rizzo)
We'll be by your side!
(Jim/Gonzo and Rizzo)
There's gotta be something better than this
*(something more than this)
I know that there's so much out there to see
*(To see)
And I know this life I'm living can't be my destiny
*(Destiny)
There's gotta be something better,
Something better...
There's gotta be something better for me
(and me)
(hey what about me?)
There's something better than this for you and me!
