"One For The Ages" Lyrics

Sparks Lyrics


"One For The Ages"

As I slip and slide
Banging against the walls
Barely qualified
Drifting barren halls
Bosses oft deride
I accept their charm
Someday this will change
Experts, they will swarm

‘Cause it’s one, it’s one
It’s one for the ages
It’s one, it’s one
It’s one for the ages

As I write my tomb
Every single night
My eyes show the strain
Of computer light (every single night)
But I’m pressing on
Every word a pearl
And I’m pressing on
It will change the world

‘Cause it’s one, it’s one
It’s one for the ages
It’s one, it’s one
It’s one for the ages
It’s one, it’s one
It’s one for the ages
It’s one, it’s one
It’s one for the ages

When that day arrives
They’ll say, «Isn’t he
That real quiet guy
From accountancy
I knew all along
He’d be something great
I had pegged that guy
For a special fate»

‘Cause he’s one, he’s one
He’s one for the ages
He’s one, he’s one
He’s one for the ages
He’s one, he’s one
He’s one for the ages
He’s one, he’s one
He’s one for the ages

When the statues come
Hope they look like me
When the prizes come
I will look to be
Humble in my speech
Basking in applause
Soon the backlash comes
I don’t care, because

It’s one, it’s one
It’s one for the ages
It’s one, it’s one
It’s one for the ages
It’s one, it’s one
It’s one for the ages
It’s one, it’s one
It’s one for the ages
It’s one
