    School Help Needed - Song Lyrics

    I need the throbbing brains help quickly on a presentation for school. Here it is

    I need lyrics that have the word change in them and are about change

    I have some of the obvious ones

    Bowie - Changes
    Who - Won't get fooled again
    Billy Bragg - New England

    BUN I'd love a good zappa lyric, that is not too over the top in terms of being offensive - prof is a fan
    Too lazy to beat myself up for being to lazy to beat myself up for being too lazy to... well you get the point....

    Yes - 90125 - Changes

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)
