Lyrics:

I wake up and I don't want to get out
Of this bed that's kept me safe from all the stress and all the doubt
But I know I'll get through the day
If I simply can remain
With the notion that when I'm finished
The pleasure outweighs the pain

So get up and get moving
Don't just sit around
You've got the sky above you
And you've got two feet on the ground

I don't wanna waste a day
Say I gave my time away
Losing precious moments to the hands of a ticking clock
I could sit, I could complain
Wish that I were on a train
Heading for somewhere that I'm not
But I'm here and I'm now
So I'll just work with what I've got

The day goes on and I feel I'm running out
Of whatever it is that I need to insure that I am still about
So I change my mind to make my thoughts today
Instead of last week or even next week
Cause now is here to stay

So get up and get moving
Don't just sit around
You've got the sky above you
And you've got two feet on the ground

I don't wanna waste a day
Say I gave my time away
Losing precious moments to the hands of a ticking clock
I could sit, I could complain
Wish that I were on a train
Heading for somewhere that I'm not
But I'm here and I'm now
So I'll just work with what I've got

Work with what ya got baby
Work with what ya got baby
Work with what ya got baby (x2)

I don't wanna waste a day
Say I gave my time away
Losing precious moments to the hands of a ticking clock
I could sit, I could complain
Wish that I were on a train
Heading for somewhere that I'm not
But I'm here and I'm now
So I'll just work with what I've got
