Can't Stop Me Now

  • I spit on the streets in San
    Called the record and company man
    My enthusiasm filled the room

    I was young and I was keen
    With the devil in my stream
    As I hollowed at an old blues tune

    We can't sign your sign
    'Cause we're doper than the mole
    That you had on your nose and your clothes
    I should thank you gentleman
    For this life that you brought me
    Now move on down the road

    I remember how I used to say

    [Chorus]
    They can't stop me now
    The world is waiting
    It's my turn to stand out in the crowd
    They can't stop me now
    The tide is turning
    I'm gonna make you proud

    Well nothing was tough
    But I couldn't get enough
    Out this rhythm and blues I crave

    I was singing in the parks
    Singing in the clubs
    Then along came agony

    All the things he said to me
    And all the things I heard
    I had a point to prove

    I will climb this mountain
    With this god given gift
    If it's the last thing that I do

    And I remember thinking

    [Chorus: x2]

    Born to ramble
    Born to sing
    In a new world of rock n roll
    Woman in particular
    Feel my heart will cry
    And if I hold my song

    Thanks for the faith
    Thanks for the patience
    Thanks for the helping hand
    Thanks for the love
    Thanks for the guidance
    Thanks for the talk and pride
