Lyrics (2006)[]

Chuck E.: Everyone's watchin' to see what you will do
Everyone's lookin' at you, oh
Everyone's wonderin', will you come out tonight?
Everyone's tryin' to get it right
Get it right

All: Everybody's workin' for the weekend
Everybody wants a little romance
Everybody's goin' off the deep end
Everybody needs a second chance
Chuck E.: Oh

You want a piece of my heart?
You better start from the start
You wanna be in the show?
Come on, baby, let's go!

Everyone's lookin' to see if it was you
Everyone wants you to come through (They do!)
Everyone's hopin' it'll all work out
Everyone's waitin', they're holdin' out (YEAH!)

All: Everybody's workin' for the weekend (WHOA!)
Everybody wants a little romance
Chuck E.: Hey, yeaaaaah, yeah!
All: Everybody's goin' off the deep end
Everybody needs a second chance
Chuck E.: Oh

You want a piece of my heart?
You better start from the start (C'mon!)
You wanna be in the show?
Come on, baby, let's go!

TAKE IT, JASPER!
Jasper: Yeah!

Jasper: A little dog can gutsy on here!

Chuck E. (Helen joining): You want a piece of my heart?

You wanna be in the show?

You wanna be in the show?
Come on, baby, let's go!

Oh, yeah, that'll do.
