  • I'm a little bit worse for wear
    Got a little bit more grey hair
    I'm not gonna be the next big thing, but I'm getting fitted for a new brass ring
    I been dunked, I've been kicked around
    Now I'm ready for the big rebound
    I know you can't win them all, but I'm swingin' like Pitt gettin' hits in Moneyball

    Get back, get back up
    You gotta get back, get back up
    You got a whole stadium on their feet, it's not about a victory or a defeat
    See you gotta get back, get back up
    You gotta get back, get back up

    Not everything is sink or swim
    You cant fly if the airs too thin
    The best part of the ride is the freefall
    Better keep your arms and legs in the vehicle
    Standing eight and I'm on the ropes
    Knees givin' but I wont lose hope
    Not the second coming of Muhammad Ali, but can I get a "WOOT" for the boxing imagery?

    Get back, get back up
    You gotta get back, get back up
    You got a whole stadium on their feet, it's not about a victory or a defeat
    See you gotta get back, get back up
    You gotta get back, get back up

    Gotta get back, gotta get back
    Gotta get back, gotta get back
    Gotta get back, gotta get back
    Gotta get back, gotta get back
    Gotta get back, gotta get back
    Gotta get back, gotta get back

    Get back, get back up
    You gotta get back, get back up
    You got a whole stadium on their feet, it's not about a victory or a defeat
    See you gotta get back, get back up
    You gotta get back, get back up
    Everybody's up on their feet, it's not about a victory or a defeat
    See you gotta get back, get back up
    You gotta get back, get back up

    Gotta get back, gotta get back
    Gotta get back, gotta get back
    Gotta get back, gotta get back
    Gotta get back, gotta get back
    Gotta get back, gotta get back
    Gotta get back, gotta get back Writer/s: ED ROBERTSON, KEVIN GRIFFIN
