Words and music by rick nielsen
Reputation is a fragile thing
Fame and money don't mean much to me
Oh, don't go change to prove the point
It doesn't matter, oh no

We've had our problems and we've had our fun
Did a lot of livin' on the run
Oh don't go cover up the truth
Cause we're together, oh yeah

One on one, one on one
It's you and me against the world
It's one on one

Head is spinning and your mouth is dry
Happiness you couldn't find or buy
Oh, ever want something so bad you could taste it?

Made the deadline and you passed the test
Sabotage seems safer than success
Put it off until tomorrow
I've hear it all before

But it's one on one, one on one
It's you and me against the world
It's one on one

I need some time to think the whole thing over
You say you want to save the world alone
I want to taste and test the waters with you
It's not so easy when you're on your own

Don't lie to me is all I ask of you
No excuses I just want the truth
Reputation is a fragile thing
I know you know it, well it's
One on one, one on one
It's you and me against the world
It's one on one

One on one, one on one
It's you and me against the world
It's one on one

(repeat to coda)
