Knock It Out of the Park

There are those around me
Who say it isn’t possible
“It’s too hard”
“It isn’t in the cards”
But those excuses are just plain arguable
They say it’s better to play it safe
And only a few survive
They think I should be more practical
They have no faith that I’ll ever arrive

I’m going to knock it out of the park
I’m going to give it my all
I’m going to reach for the sky
I’ve got nothing to lose
No more thinking small

Why do you even care
How I spend my time?
It isn’t you
I have a dream to pursue
And I never even asked to use your dime
Maybe you just have no guts
But there’s so much I want to do
Please don’t rain on my parade
Just because it isn’t for you

I’m going to knock it out of the park
I’m going to give it my all
I’m going to reach for the sky
I’ve got nothing to lose
No more thinking small

First, second, third, home
Just watch me
Knock it right out of the park
