Somebody told me once
That pain is a game we all gotta play
Then why am I in overtime
And sudden death every other day

I know that for the good of life
There's a price we all gotta pay
But I'll pay 'till I'm poor and I still don't know
What it is to have a good day

Since everybody knows what it is that I need to do
Well do me a favor,
Let me worry 'bout me
And you worry 'bout you

I don't need no one to put me down
I'm on the ground, can't get no lower
And I don't need no one to hang around an' make me frown
Just makes me look older

And I don't need no one to black my eye
An' tell me lies
Don't wanna cry over nobody else
I can do bad all by myself

Somebody told me once that runnin' from the rain don't make no sense
I had my own dark cloud
For awhile now,
It goes where ever I'm goin'

You're tellin' me the grass might be greener on the other side
But I don't wanna take a chance on dirt
When I got grass
Even though the grass has died

Since everybody knows what it is that I need to do
Well do me a favor,
Let me worry 'bout me
And you worry 'bout you

I don't need no one to put me down
I'm on the ground, can't get no lower
And I don't need no one to hang around an' make me frown
Just makes me look older

And I don't need no one to black my eye
An' tell me lies
Don't wanna cry over nobody else
I can do bad all by myself

Don't waste time feelin' bad for me
I didn't ask you for your sympathy
I know God is watchin' over me
So I guess this is where I'm suppose to be

I don't need no one to put me down
I'm on the ground, can't get no lower
And I don't need no one to hang around an' make me frown
Just makes me look older

And I don't need no one to black my eye
An' tell me lies
Don't wanna cry over nobody else
I can do bad

And I don't need no one to put me down
I'm on the ground, can't get no lower
And I don't need no one to hang around an' make me frown
Just makes me look older

And I don't need no one to black my eye
An' tell me lies
Don't wanna cry over nobody, nobody, nobody else
Cause I can do bad all by myself
