I was a butcher cutting up meat
My hands were bloody, I'm dying on my feet
I was a surgeon 'til I started to shake
I was falling but you put on the breaks

Hey hey
You've got me rocking now

I was a pitcher down in a slump
I was a fighter taken for a sucker punch
I'm feeling bad, guess I lost my spring
I was the boxer who can't get in the ring

Hey hey
There ain't no stopping me

All right
Oh yeah

I was a hooker losing her looks
I was a writer, can't write another book
I was all dried up, dying to get wet
I was a tycoon drowning in debt

I said...

That's all right
Come on

Don't, don't you stop me
Yeah
