Lyrics

<poem> Archie: If that's what it is Then that's what it is You're probably right to just forget it Lets face it you've worked so hard and now you're scarred And free of any hope I guess you should mope Forget what you've planned Hey, I understand

If that's what it is Then that's what it is Though that's not the way I choose to see it I have my own view that works with all these jerks and unenlightened fools I make my own rules, I do what I can If I hit the wall then maybe its all a part of the plan Tomorrow will come, today will be gone And so I put one foot in front of the other One foot in front of the other And just keep walking on

Patrice: If that's what it is

Archie: If that's what it is

Patrice: What also is true

Archie: What also is true

Patrice & Archie: Is it may not always be disaster

Patrice: I realize that now it is but how it is Isn't how its got be Another day comes, another day goes And if I get teased or hurt or lied to or punched in the nose I say I wont cry I cry until dawn And then I put one foot in front of the other

Patrice & Archie: One foot in front of the other

Patrice: And just keep walking on

Evan: I'm becoming a man Maybe all that it means is I face the world for what it is And not what I wish it could be I'm becoming a man Wanting everything fall into place I swing, I miss I'll get through this I almost guarantee

One day I'll be thirty One day I'll be fine One day I'll make fun of this dramatic life of mine One day I'll be older And then I'll write a book About the choices that I made

Patrice: The choices that you made

Evan: And the chances that I took

Patrice: The chances that you--

Archie: If that's what it is Then that's what it is At least until Disney can re-write it We put our shoes and socks and take the knocks And wish that it would change

Patrice: And maybe it will

Evan: And maybe it can

Archie: Until then you trust that all this is just becoming a man

Patrice: You take your best shot

All three: Cause look what you've got

Patrice: Go on and put one foot in front of the other

Evan: One foot in front of the other

Archie: One foot in front of the other Evan: One foot in front of the other

Archie: The crip, the geek, the jew and his mother

Patrice: And just keep walking on
