I wake up just to work hard every day
Nothin' free and nothin' easy ever comes my way
Hands are calloused, my body is bruised
I won't give up and I will not lose
Just when you count me out, that's when I'll come
Through I'm

The underdog
The one whose back stays against the wall
The underdog
I'll still be standin' when the favorite falls
So they say I'm not that strong
And the odds are way too long
Well, I was born to prove them wrong
I'm the underdog

My baby's the best lookin' thing to hit this town
She believes in me even though her folks don't
Want me comin' 'round
They got bigger plans for her than me
I've got somethin' inside they can't see
But someday I swear they will, 'cause I won't
Always be ohh

The underdog
The one whose back stays against the wall
The underdog
I'll still be standin' when the favorite falls
So they say I'm not that strong
And the odds are way too long
Well, I was born to prove them wrong
I'm the underdog

I know every verse and every word of 1st Samuel 17
I love it when that big ol' boy's bought down to
His knees
And it sometimes seems that all my dreams are over
Nine feet tall
And I'm the little man with a rock in his hand
Just like David in overalls I'm

The underdog
The one whose back stays against the wall
The underdog
I'll still be standin' when the favorite falls
So they say I'm not that strong
And the odds are way too long
Well, I was born to prove them wrong
I'm the underdog

Oh, I'm the underdog
Don't you count me out
Yeah
