Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah

He said goodbye to the angels of heaven
And He came to earth as a common man
He taught us how we could love one another
There was healing in His hands
There were those who believed and followed Him
And there were those who wanted Him dead
They thought the grave would silence Him forever
But they found out instead

You can close your eyes
You can say it's a lie
You can stick your head in the sand
You can turn away, even try to explain
He was just another man
When they nailed Him to the cross by His hands and feet
and they put Him in the ground
Three days later everybody found out that you can't
No you can't keep a good man down, no
No you can't keep a good man down

I hear you say that it all sounds crazy
It's a good story but it can't be true
How could a man who was dead and buried
Mean a thing to me and you
Here we are two thousand years later
and still the choice is just the same
You can say that you don't believe it
But it doesn't change a thing

You can close your eyes
You can say it's a lie
You can stick your head in the sand
You can turn away, even try to explain
He was just another man
When they nailed Him to the cross by His hands and feet
and they put Him in the ground
Three days later everybody found out that you can't
No you can't keep a good man down, no
No you can't keep a good man down

I can take you to the hill where they hung Him on the cross
I can take you to the empty tomb
I can tell you He's alive 'cause He lives in me
But the rest is up to you

Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah

You can close your eyes
You can say it's a lie
You can stick your head in the sand
You can turn away, even try to explain
He was just another man
When they nailed Him to the cross by His hands and feet
and they put Him in the ground
Three days later everybody found out that you can't
No you can't keep a good man down, no
No you can't keep a good man down

Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah

Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah

Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah

Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah

    Jesus is the good man that couldn't be kept down, they crucified him and he gave up the ghost after he proclaimed it is finished... They place is body in a sepulchre but on the third day he rose... And afterwards he ascended into heaven... He now sits at the right hand of the throne of his/our heavenly father making intercession for us!!!

    God is not a man, he is god, he just came down to earth as a man so that he can save us from our sins.
