about

Our latest song towards our third CD. The main song "Nikki's Plan", a tale of dreams and determination, is followed by the short reprise "Broadway", which is written from the perspective of the guy she leaves behind to follow her dream. This song will be released in August on the 2012 International Pop Overthrow (IPO) compilation CD.

lyrics

NIKKI'S PLAN
(Ratts/Kern)

nikki works nine to five
and she keeps her hopes alive
listening to the radio
from a place that she's gonna go

nikki likes to break it down
and build things up from the ground
it's the only way she knows
plant a seed and then let it grow

nikki does the best she can
little nikki's got a great big plan
first she'll walk out of this bar
with everything she owns inside her car

and a thousand dollars to her name
a beat-up honda and a tattered map of maine
heading south for new york lights
and the promise of a hard won life

and she knows
success is gonna take some time
the world is on her side
and maybe no one understands
but things are going just as nikki planned

well nikki got turned down today
but she's anything but phased
working on her routine
she's gonna be the best they've ever seen

and she knows
success is gonna take some time
the world is on her side
and maybe no one understands
but things are going just as nikki planned

and she's gonna give it everything she's got
she's gonna be ready when she gets her shot
she's working her way to the top

and when she finally takes the stage
and a million people scream her name
since the day she planned the whole thing out
little nikki never had a doubt

and she knows
success is gonna take some time
the world is on her side
and maybe no one understands
but things are going just as nikki planned
yeah, they're going just as nikki planned
things are going just as nikki planned

BROADWAY
(Ratts/Kern)

my baby's on broadway
my baby's on broadway
she got the part
it broke my heart
'cause i can't compete
with roses thrown at her feet
the trappings of fame
and all that show biz acclaim
i'm sorry to say...
my baby's on broadway
