lyrics

If you want to be a leader, then you must become a Script Reader.
Cause leaders are not elected.
Leaders are selected.
If you're hungry for power, then you must become the elites little flower.
Ah ah ah ah.
That's just the way things are.

Johnny is an ambitious man.
He likes to win. He'll do anything he can.
He's so cocky. He has great self esteem.
Becoming a leader was always Johnny's dream.
So his mother sat him down and said to him "now listen son."

If you want to be a leader, then you must become a Script Reader.
Cause leaders are not elected.
Leaders are selected.
If you're hungry for power, then you must become the elites little flower.
Ah ah ah ah.
That's just the way things are.

Some times from a far things may seem like peaches and cream.
But as the saying goes "things aren't always what they seem."
Once you're in the game you must play by the rules.
And that means you could can across as being cruel.
Little did Johnny know, that's just the way things are.
And that's the price one pays to become a star.

If you want to be a leader, then you must become a Script Reader.
Cause leaders are not elected.
Leaders are selected.
If you're hungry for power, then you must become the elites little flower.
Ah ah ah ah.
That's just the way things are.

If you want to be a leader, then you must become a Script Reader.
Cause leaders are not elected.
Leaders are selected.
If you're hungry for power, then you must become the elites little flower.
Ah ah ah ah.
That's just the way things are.
