Ali in the Jungle

Album: Narcissus Road (2006)
  • It's, not, how you start, it's how you finish,
    And it's, not, where you're from, it's where you're at

    Everybody gets knocked down,
    Everybody gets knocked down,
    How quick are you gonna' get up?
    How quick are you gonna' get up?

    Everybody gets knocked down,
    Everybody gets knocked down,
    How quick are you gonna' get up?
    Just how are you gonna' get up?

    Like Ali in the jungle,
    Like Nelson in jail,
    Like Simpson on the mountain,
    With odds like that, they were bound to fail

    Like Keller in the darkness,
    Like Adam's in the dock,
    Like Ludwig Van, how I loved that man,
    Well the guy went deaf and didn't give a damn, no

    No, no, no

    It's, not, where you are, It's where you're going,
    Where are you going?
    And it's, not, about the things you've done, it's what you're doing, now,
    What are you doing, now?

    Everybody gets knocked down,
    Everybody gets knocked down,
    How quick are you gonna' get up?
    How quick are you gonna' get up, now?

    Everybody gets knocked down,
    Everybody gets knocked down,
    How quick are you gonna' get up?
    Just how are you gonna' get up?

    Like Ali in the jungle,
    Like Nelson in jail,
    Like Simpson on the mountain,
    Well with odds like that, they were bound to fail

    Like Keller in the darkness,
    Like Adam's in the dock,
    Like Ludwig Van, how I loved that man,
    Well the guy went deaf and didn't give a damn, no

    Oooh, ooh, ooh
    No, no, no
    Oooh, ooh, ooh
    No, no, no
    Oooh, ooh, ooh

    It's the greatest comeback since Lazarus,
    The greatest comeback since Lazarus,
    It's the greatest comeback since Lazarus,
    The greatest comeback since Lazarus,
    It's the greatest comeback since Lazarus,
    The greatest comeback since Lazarus,
    The greatest comeback since Lazarus,
    The greatest comeback
    It's the greatest comeback... Writer/s: ANTHONY GENN, MARTIN SLATTERY
