Number One

by Joni Mitchell

Got to be a winner trophy winner
Get to hold your head up high up
Number one

Got to be a winner trophy winner
Get to hold your head up high up
Number one

Number one
Number one
Honey tell me
When your working day is done
Were you reaching for the high rung
Reaching to be number one?

You get a car
You want a boat
You want an eenie-meenie-miney
Miney-moe
Oh there must be more to living
Than a mortgage and a lawn to mow

Sweaty work
And lucky breaks
And blood and tears is all it takes
To be a winner
People cheer
And people gasp
People want your autograph
When you're a winner

Run run run run
Let's see you run
We'll be betting by the starting gun
Shall we shower you with flowers
Or shall we shun ya
When your race is run?
Will we shower you with flowers
Or will we shun ya
When your race is run?
Will they shower you with flowers
Or will they shun ya
When your race is run?

Got to be a winner trophy winner
Get to hold your head up high up
Number one
