If it's true that a rich man leads a sad life
N' that's what they from day to day
Then what do all the poor do with their lives on Judgement Day?
With nothing to say

I've been beat up, I've been thrown out
But I'm not down, I'm not down
I've been shown up but I've grown up
I'm not down, I'm not down

So you rock around and think that you're the toughest
In the world, the whole wide world
But you're streets away from where it gets the roughest
You ain't been there, oh

Well, I've been beat up, I've been thrown out
But I'm not down, I'm not down
I've been shown up but I've grown up
I'm not down, I'm not down

I've have lived that kind of day
When none of your sorrows will go away
It goes down and down and hit the floor
Down and down and down some more
Depression

But I know there'll be some way
When I can swing everything back my way
Like skyscrapers rising up
Floor by floor, I'm not giving up
Givin' up

'Cause I've been beat up, been thrown out
But I'm not down, I'm not down
I've been shown up but I've grown up
And I'm not down, I'm not down

I've been beat up, I've been thrown out
But I'm not down, I'm not down
I've been shown up but I've grown up
And I'm not down, I'm not down
I'm not down
