The Lyrics

HIGH HOPES

Just when are we going to know
When someone will give us the go.
Everyone's feeling so low,
When we hear a big NO.

But we've got high hopes,
We've got high hopes.
We've got high apple pie
In the sky hopes.

So every time you're feeling sad,
Or are getting mad,
Give your nose a good blow!
Oops let's hope they'll have another go.
Oops let's hope they'll have another go.
Oops let's hope they'll have another go.

I knew someone living by me
Tried to climb a sycamore tree.
But everyone could see he
Struggled climbing that tree.

But he had high hopes
He had high hopes.
He had high apple pie
In the sky hopes.

But as he tried to get a grip,
He would go and slip,
And he'd fall to the ground.
Oops perhaps he'll go and try again,
Oops perhaps he'll go and try again,
Oops perhaps he'll go and try again.

I keep failing things that I try,
Make me want to give up and cry.
But then as time goes by I
Want to end on a high.

'Cause I have high hopes,
I have high hopes.
I have high apple pie
In the sky hopes.

So every time I'm feeling blue
I'll know what to do,
Keep on trying once more.
There, I know I'll go and try again,
There, I know I'll go and try again,
There, I know I'll go and try again.
