Music: Check it Out - by John Mellencamp

A million young poets
Screamin' out their words
To a world full of people
Just livin' to be heard
Future generations
Ridin' on the highways that we built
I hope they have better understanding

(Check it out)
Goin' to work on Monday
(Check it out)
Got yourself a family
(Check it out)
All utility bills have been paid
You can't tell your best buddy that you love him
So check it out
Where does our time go?
(Check it out)
Got a brand new house in escrow
(Check it out)
Sleepin' with your back to your loved one
This is all that we've learned about happiness

(Check it out)
Forgot to say hello to my neighbors
(Check it out)
Sometimes I question my own behavior
(Check it out)
Talkin' about the girls that we've seen on the sly
Just to tell ourselves we're still the young lions
(Check it out)
Gettin' too drunk on Saturdays
(Check it out)
Playin' football with the kids on Sundays
(Check it out)
Soarin' with the eagles all week long
And this is all that we've learned about living
This is all that we've learned about living

Check it out!
Check it out!
Check it out!

A million young poets
Screamin' out their words
Maybe someday
Those words will be heard
By future generations
Ridin' on the highways that we built
Maybe they'll have a better understanding

(Check it out)
Hope they'll have a better understanding
(Check it out)
Maybe they'll have a better understanding
(Check it out)
Maybe they'll have a better understanding
(Check it out)
Hope they'll have a better understanding
(Check it out)

Hey check it out!
Check it out!
Check it out!
Check it out!
Check it out!
