No one raised their hand that day
When they asked for volunteers
He got picked out by default
He was the only daddy there

They said we know what you're thinking
Choose someone else instead
But this league is built on coaches
Who stood right there and said

Not me, not me, no way with this job of mine
I could never find the time not me, not me
The world becomes a better place when
Someone stands and leads the way
Steps forward when they'd rather say, not me

The judge says you're the oldest
May choose a legal guardian
I'm sorry that you lost your folks
But there's no next of kin

Two brothers and a sister, she knew how hard
It would be but she softly said
I'll raise them while a voice inside her screamed

Not me, not me, I can't believe what's happening
This isn't how it's supposed to be not me, not me
The world becomes a better place when
Someone stands and leads the way
Steps forward when they'd rather say, not me

A young captain at attention
A star pin on his chest
He recalls the battle while
The final roll call's read

They were the finest soldiers
It was my privilege to lead
They deserve the medals
The men who died not me

Not me, not me, I just did what
I was called to do you'd do the same
If it was you, not me, not me
The world becomes a better place when
Someone stands and leads the way
Steps forward when they'd rather say not me

Yeah, steps forward when they'd rather say
Not me, not me, not me
