Your Performance

See how it works

Before you start:

Our project is not a competition. It’s not about the most perfect and professional performance.

The Lyrics

Verse 1
It ain’t fair when you work hard don’t get enough bucks toiling from the morning till the dark. You gotta spend your money smart. Send it to the right place. You gotta listen to your heart.

Verse 2
Seriously, do you know what you get when you go to the mall do you really think that you’re smart? Do you actually know what’s going on behind closed doors don’t treat them wrong.
I think you don’t. But there’s a chance that you do when you don’t have a clue listen up to the truth.

Do you actually know what’s going on behind closed doors don’t treat them wrong.

Chorus
You have the power to change the world so that every boy and girl can smile. You see the world and realize your decisions bring the light we need.

Verse 3
Every day I wake up. Just living my life in a loop but I gotta wake up. I gotta wake up. My first reaction was Hmm..what??
I didn’t know that but then I realized. We live a life full of lies. Everything comes at a price. Even rice.

Do you actually know what’s going on behind closed doors don’t treat them wrong. Do you actually know what’s going on behind closed doors don’t treat them wrong Chorus (repeated).
