WHATEVER IT TAKES

----------VERSE/REFRAIN 1------------
THIS IS THE WAY WE DO BUSINESS
THIS IS OUR USUAL TRADE
GROPING AND GRAPPLING AND GRINDING IT OUT
MENDING MISTAKES THAT WE MADE
TRYING WHATEVER IT TAKES
      
----------VERSE/REFRAIN 2------------
THIS IS THE WAY WE DO FAM'LY
THESE ARE OUR ANNUAL TOASTS
TESTING AND TINK'RING AND TRYING IT ALL
SCARING AWAY ALL THE GHOSTS
DOING WHATEVER IT TAKES


-------------PRE-CHORUS--------------
MY PLANS ARE ALL CHECKED
TELL ME WHAT TO EXPECT

-------------CHORUS---------------
LIFE NEVER TURNS OUT THE WAY WE PLANNED
SOMETHING WE WON'T UNDERSTAND
BUT WE GO WITH THE ACHES AND HOPE FOR THE BREAKS
WE'RE IN IT WHATEVER IT TAKES


----------VERSE/REFRAIN 3------------
THIS IS THE WAY WE DO LIVING
THESE ARE OUR USUAL TRICKS
SLIPPING AND SLIDING AND SLINKING AROUND.  
TROUBLES WE NEVER CAN FIX
GIVING WHATEVER IT TAKES

-------------PRE-CHORUS--------------
MY PLANS ARE ALL CHECKED
TELL ME WHAT TO EXPECT

-------------CHORUS---------------
LIFE NEVER TURNS OUT THE WAY WE PLANNED
SOMETHING WE WON'T UNDERSTAND
BUT WE GO WITH THE ACHES AND HOPE FOR THE BREAKS
WE'RE IN IT WHATEVER IT TAKES


-----------BRIDGE-------------------
CASTLES ON THE SAND AND CASTLES WAY UP IN THE SKY
CRUMBLE, GOLLY GEE, OH ME, OH MY.
GOOD INTENTIONS LEAD TO WHO KNOWS WHAT AND WHO KNOWS WHY
SMACK!
IN YOUR FACE
CUSTARD PIE.


-------------CHORUS---------------
LIFE NEVER TURNS OUT THE WAY WE PLANNED
SOMETHING WE WON'T UNDERSTAND
BUT WE GO WITH THE ACHES AND HOPE FOR THE BREAKS
WE'RE IN IT WHATEVER IT TAKES
