[D]Hit the gas baby screw your [G]head on straight
Don't [D]tell me that you're tired
because it's [A]early or late
'Cause if I'm [D]wishin' to attain
now is the [G]time to be great
[D]Please, [A]baby keep your head on [D]straight

When I'm not acting out
or even speakin' up
Yeah I'm lookin' mighty proper
but I feel like gluck
It may look acceptable
but really it's reproachable
to have the psychic aura
of a slightly rotten egg

I believe in non-violence
but I'll take the liberty
of a good stout kick
to my own negativity
When I'm acting like a wiener
with a will like a pea
I'll kindly wallop my booty

Chorus A:

I [D]wish to [G]attain and I'll [D]do what it [A]takes
I [D]wish to [G]attain and I [D]know it's high [A]stakes
but that's [D]all right

Chorus B:

Perfect virtue is a tall order,
but ain't it great
to have something big to aim for

When I look like a biscuit
that just rolled down a hill
and I'm wondering if intelligence
could come in a pill
I'll remember that now is the time to be real
and screw my head on straight

When I sound like a lemon
that got stuck in the drain
and everything is just such pain!
I'll remember that I wish to attain
and screw my head on straight

Chorus A

When I feel like a potato
with an egg for a brain
and no matter what I do
it just seems a little lame
I'll remember that now
is the time to attain
and screw my head on straight

Laziness makes me feel blue
and lethargy is like livin' in goo
So I'll remember that it's better
to get up and do, something not for me

Chorus B

When I've tried good posture
and I've tried clear mind
But my best points of view
I cannot seem to find
I'll remember that now is the time
and screw my head on straight

When I know there's necessity
but I can't quite make it kick
and I know it's important
but can't get my blues licked
then I'll remember that this is it
and screw my head on straight

When I've tried to find the flow
and I've said shoo go
but still the blues bite
and just won't let go
I'll remember myself and shout out YO!
And screw my head on straight

Chorus A & B

Hit the gas baby
screw your head on straight
Don't tell me that you're tired
because it's early or late
'Cause if I'm wishin' to attain
now is the time to be great
Please baby keep your head on straight
