lyrics

You're a nice guy, but something tells me you could be more
Cause when you're the right guy, people trust you so much more
I see myself in you, a slightly smaller reflection of me
I'm tough on the outside, search for the spirit inside of me
I'll share a little, I'm not what they say I am - I let them go on believing
That I'm a jerk and a lofty soul or at least so I'm told
But now that I'm leaving

You're the next up, the next one in line to hold the power and control
So don't mess up, don't look back in anger as you climb your pedestal

Where did you come from? You've got the ladies in a trance
With help from your brothers, you've learned to act and sing and dance
The king of the farmers, look at you now, presidentially running the show
Your passion alarms us so naturally you'll be running Kirby and Co.

And you're the next up, the next one in line to show the world what we can be
So don't mess up, don't look back in anger, give the crowd what they want to see

The time has come now for me to take my final bow
They're looking for the next up, I hope that I have shown you how to be the leader, your friends and world around you need
It's tough on the outside, but you've got the spirit that you need

To be the next up, the next one in line to hit the stage and sing to the stars
So don't mess up, don't look back in anger as you show us who you are
And you're the next up, the next one in line to show the world what we all can be
So don't mess up, don't look back in anger, give the crowd what they want to see
And you're the next up, the next one in line to hold the power and control
So don't mess up, don't look back in anger as you climb your pedestal
