If you've ever owned a car Or you rent a car Or you have a company car Then count that up Add it to the ever-growing list of things you can't claim all the credit for If your mother had a job And your dad had a job When you were growing up then count that up 'Cause pounds and pennies aren't the only kind of capital
If you've ever visited another country and waltzed through passport control Then count that up Put one more stamp in the book you'd like to call I Own My Own Genius (Count it up) If you get to choose the clothes you wear and how you cut your hair Then count that up (Count it up) And you can utilise your democratic power for the good of somebody else
Then try to Count Count Count Count it up
I'm quite an old-fashioned fellow I am not averse to owning up Can't we give each other The tiniest benefit of the doubt?
If you can go through day to day without the fear of violence Count that up (Count it up) If people don't stare at you on the street because of the colour of your skin Count that up (Count it up) If your body makes some kind of sense to you Count that up (Count it up) And use the breath you have left to say something that matters
Then try to Count it up
If you can turn on the tap And your kids can drink the water Count that up (Count it up) If you've ever had the luxury of turning down a job Count that up (Count it up) If you had books and newspapers in your house when you were a kid Count that up (Count it up) Don't forget Don't forget Don't forget to count it up (Count it up)

Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise" spent 24 weeks on top of the country chart- the most ever until Sam Hunt's "Body Like a Back Road" was #1 for 34 weeks. The record was previously held by Eddy Arnold's "I'll Hold You in My Heart (1947-48), Hank Snow's "I'm Moving On" (1950-51) and Webb Pierce's "In the Jailhouse Now" (1955), which each led for 21 weeks.
