lyrics

They told you once, they told you twice,
Everyone's got their eye on the prize,
Throw down your glove and say goodnight,
Get in the ring, learn how to fight

Oh, asleep at the wheel, you know how it feels,
Waging a war, against a closed door,
Take me alive, you've already won

They told you once, they told you twice,
Every fish needs the bait 'fore it bites,
If I was a bee I'd build a hive,
And honey I'd be sinker and line

Oh, asleep at the wheel, you know how it feels,
Waging a war, against a closed door,
Take me alive, you've already won
