  • Some people get lucky
    Born with a silver spoon
    Other people got to work real hard
    A whole life of paying dues
    One man got a big old house
    Fast car and swimming pool
    Another man got a big old wife
    Ten kids and one bathroom

    [PRE-CHORUS]

    Sometimes
    We're just stuck
    Behind
    The velvet rope [x2]

    [CHORUS]

    You gotta jump up so high
    Jump up jump over the rope
    You gotta jump up so high
    Jump up jump the rope

    Some people get lucky
    Take a chance to strike it rich
    Other people wll they bet it all lose
    Ain't life a bitch
    One man's on the guest list
    Arrives in a limousine
    Another man got to stand on line
    Outside in the pouring rain

    [BRIDGE]

    We got the world on a string
    Wrapped around our fingers
    We got everything we need
    We don't need a thing
    There ain't no rope that can hold us
    Nothing keeps us down
    There ain't a rope that can bind us
    We're gonna jump up off the ground
