Something Big
(Burt Bacharach - Hal David)

Like a grain of sand
that wants to be
a rolling stone
I want to be the man
I'm not,
and have the things
I really haven't got,
and that's a lot.

There'll be joy
and there'll be laughter.
Something big is what I'm after now
Yes, it's what I'm after now.

After taking, take up giving,
something big is what I'm living for.
Yes, it's what I'm living for,
living for.

Why do I go on
And fill my life with little things
when there are big things I
must do,
and lots of dreams
that really should come true
before I'm through.

There'll be joy,,,

After taking, take up giving,...
