The Fighter



Just waking up in the morningAnd to be well,Quite honest with ya,I ain't really sleep wellYa ever feel like your train of thought's been derailed?That's when you press on - Lee nailsHalf the population's just waitin to see me failYeah right, you're better off trying to freeze hellSome of us do it for the femalesAnd others do it for the retail
But I do it for the kids, life threw the towel in onEvery time you fall it's only making your chin strongAnd I'll be in your corner like Mick, baby, 'til the endOr when you hear a song from that big lady
[Bridge]Until the referee rings the bellUntil both your eyes start to swellUntil the crowd goes homeWhat we gonna do ya'll?
[Chorus - Ryan Tedder]Give em hell, turn their headsGonna live life 'til we're dead.Give me scars, give me painThen they'll say to me, say to me, say to meThere goes the fighter, there goes the fighterHere comes the fighterThat's what they'll say to me, say to me, say to me,This one's a fighter
[Verse 2]And if I can last thirty roundsThere's no reason you should ever have your head downSix foot five, two hundred and twenty poundsHailing from rock bottom, loserville, nothing town
Text book version of a kid going nowhere fastAnd now I'm yelling, "Kiss my ass"It's gonna take a couple right hooks, a few left jabsFor you to recognize you really ain't got it bad
[Bridge]Until the referee rings the bellUntil both your eyes start to swellUntil the crowd goes homeWhat we gonna do ya'll?
[Chorus - Ryan Tedder]Give em hell, turn their headsGonna live life 'til we're dead.Give me scars, give me painThen they'll say to me, say to me, say to meThere goes the fighter, there goes the fighterHere comes the fighterThat's what they'll say to me, say to me, say to me,This one's a fighter
Everybody put yo hands upWhat we gonna do (hey!) [x4] y'all?What we gonna do (hey!) [x3] y'all?
If you fall pick yourself up off the floor (get up)And when your bones can't take no more (c'mon)Just remember what you're here forCuz I know Imma damn sure
Give em hell, turn their headsGonna live life 'til we're dead.Give me scars, give me painThen they'll say to me, say to me, say to meThere goes the fighter, there goes the fighterHere comes the fighterThat's what they'll say to me, say to me, say to me,This one's a fighter
'Til the referee rings the bell'Til both ya eyes start to swell'Til the crowd goes home,What we gonna do kid?
