So you tell me that the sky will probably fall in

It's gonna rain tomorrow and you will never win

You're father is a curse   your mother is much worse

Well just before you rent that hearse

 

Have you ever read the stories of Hans Christian Anderson?

The ugly duckling   remember   he really was a swan

If you bought a lemon babe

You can always make a lemonade

You can tell the future   but babe   it doesn't have to listen,

 

Listen, Listen.

 

So you tell me that this guy will probably fall in

You're gettin married tomorrow   you're in love with him

Your father is the best man   your muma's doin what she can

And baby you're in the family plan

THE UNDERDOG       © J.Birch 2003.   USA Country Strong Voice/Fighter

 

I grew up on the poor streets

Coloured brown 

They put me down

They called me weak

 

At 21 

I have become

The only one

And it weighs like a ton

 

It weighs like a ton

At 21

 

I AM THE UNDERDOG

Fresh out of school, into a ring

I AM THE UNDERDOG

They say I am bad, “I don’t belong”

I AM THE UNDERDOG

Now I have changed, she has made me strong

I AM THE UNDERDOG

THE UNDERDOG

THE UNDERDOG

I WILL FIGHT!!! YOU, LIKE A BULLDOG

 

I grew up on the poor side of town

All the kids at school

They ridiculed me

They called me a clown

 

All my life

I’ve had to fight

For what I believe is right

And it weighs like a ton

 

It weighs like a ton

When you are young

 

I AM THE UNDERDOG

Fresh out of school, into a ring

I AM THE UNDERDOG

They say I am bad, “I don’t belong”

I AM THE UNDERDOG

Now I have changed, she has made me strong

I AM THE UNDERDOG

THE UNDERDOG

THE UNDERDOG

I WILL FIGHT!!! YOU, LIKE A BULLDOG

 

I WILL FIGHT!!! YOU, LIKE A BULLDOG

I WILL FIGHT!!! YOU, LIKE A BULLDOG

 

I AM,  THE UNDERDOG.
