Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Everybody tells me that it's so hard to make it
It's so hard to break yeah
There's no way to fake it
Everybody tells me that it's wrong what I'm feeling
And I shouldn't believe in
The dreams that I'm dreaming

I hear it every day
I hear it all the time
I'm never going to amount too much
But they're never going to change my mind, no

[Chorus] [2x]
Tell me, tell me, tell me
Something I don't know, something I don't know
Something I don't know

How many inches in a mile
What it takes to make you smile
Get you not to treat me like a child, baby

[Chorus]
Tell me, tell me, tell me
Something I don't know, something I don't know
Something I don't know

Tell me, tell me something I don't know
Tell me, tell me something I don't know

[Verse 2]
Everybody tells me I don't know what I'm doing
The life I'm pursuing
The odds I'll be losing
Everybody tells me that it's one in a million
Like one in a billion
Or one in a zillion

I hear it every day
I hear it all the time
I'm never going to amount too much
But they're never going to change my mind, no

[Chorus [2x]
Tell me, tell me, tell me
Something I don't know, something I don't know
Something I don't know

How many inches in a mile
What it takes to make you smile
Get you not to treat me like a child, baby

[Chorus]
Tell me, tell me, tell me
Something I don't know, something I don't know
Something I don't know

[Rap]
So here s the track
Like Katrina making waves
Like Cold Medina, make them say
"I'm ready!"
Are you ready for it? [Yeah, I'm ready for it]
Really ready for it? [Yeah, I'm ready for it]

I'm on my way
I know I'm going to get there someday
It doesn't help when you say
It won't be easy

[Chorus] [2x]
Tell me, tell me, tell me
Something I don't know, something I don't know
Something I don't know

How many inches in a mile
What it takes to make you smile
Get you not to treat me like a child, baby

[Chorus] [3x]
Tell me, tell me, tell me
Something I don't know, something I don't know
Something I don't know

[Outro]
Tell me
