Ugly Duckling

Ugly Duckling - Audacity - Parts One And Two

rate me

1, 2, 3, 4

Audacity, Audacity

Audacity, that's the term of the day

Pertaining to the way a kind of person behaves

A description, hmmm, how would you word it

Maybe it's guts or just being assertive

You can spot 'em in any walk of life

From the prophet type to your boss or wife

And maybe they're vain or plain narcissistic

But equipped with enough heart to risk it

Coming across a bit bold or arrogant

But when they leave we wanna know where they went

So we can cry, "the nerve of that guy"

But with envy cause we're uncertain and shy

Just wishing to succeed, we run to the well

While he's got everyone under his spell

Like a hard narcotic has an addict hooked

Or a bad car crash where you have to look

They're unconfused, sharing their views

While you just shrug and stare at your shoes

Say what's he got that I don't got

Hmmm, let me take a shot

[Chorus:]

Audacity, it has to be

Audacity, it has to be

Audacity, it has to be

Audacity, it has to be

Einstein, show audacity (audacity)

Audacious, may be what it takes to make it

To stand out from a crowd of blank faces

Save the caution and common sense

Stand on the fence, you need confidence

To be an icon (what) and do the big interview

When the mics on everybody's into you

Hitting the heights, your name up in the bright lights

Your buying front row seats at the prize fights

Rich and famous movin up the a-list

Night clubs, shows, boob jobs, and face lifts

Gold teeth, clothes, diamond studded bracelets

Lawyers, calling everybody a racist

They're not afraid to be exposed or dismissed

Like big chicks with rolls who wear midriffs

And they appall you cause they have the gall to

Do the little things that they all do (who)

Rasputin, Warhol, St. Paul, Jefferson

L. Ron Hubbard, Thomas A. Edison

Satchmo, Kool Herc, Godfather used to say "pass the peas"

What did they have, Audacity

[Chorus]

On stage, I sometimes wonder why the crowd doesn't laugh at me

Maybe I got audacity

It has to be, audacity

It has to be, audacity

That's UD, you say

How you gonna go and save the best loop

For last on the beat, that's Einstein's audacity
