lyrics

You'll never stand on your two feet
Never break the mould
A life of mediocrity
Forget your hopes and industry
Forget your big ideas
It's just sociology

So I'm a fool, need to listen to you
And you're so great
So Arsène Lupin would never approve of me
And you're so great
What are these words that you want me to say?
Du fric, du blé, des balles, de l'oseille
du pognon, les banlieues en Argenteuil
I'm going to be a millionaire
Just one of these days
No matter what you say
I’m going to make it some day

Come take my hand, you must understand
That your dreams are all but just dreams
Come take my hand, I'll show you the land
Of what reality means

You'll never make it on your own
No! You're wrong
You'll never make it on your own
No! You're wrong


So queue up and get back in line
We're going to take back control
We're going to control radio
Don't ever attempt original
It's just not in your genes
It's just zoological

So sir you are better than them
And you're so great
You have black friends. You have white friends
And you're so great
You might wear a safety pin
You're middle class
You stay indoors and read the guardian
Just click your way to a revolution
You're the problem not the solution
Come take my hand, I'll show you the land
Of what reality means

You'll never make it on your own
No! You're wrong
You'll never make it on your own
No! You're wrong


I'm stronger than you!
Hell no!
I'm better than you!
Hell no!
I'm faster than you!
Hell no!
I'm better looking than you!
Hell no!
Come along for a ride with us!
I say no!
And just believe in us!
I just said No!

We can make it on our own!
No! No you're wrong!
We can make it on our own!
No! No you're wrong!
We can make it on our own!
No! No you're wrong!
We can make it on our own!
No! No you're wrong!



We can make it on our own
