Yeasayer – Ambling Alp lyrics

Now kid, I know I haven't been a perfect man
And I've avoided doing things I know I can
But if I learned one thing, the tattoo on my arm
Will burn into my thumb, it would be that

You must stick up for yourself son, never mind what anybody else done
Stick up for yourself son, never mind what anybody else done

Old man Schmelling was a formidable foe
But Ambling Alp was too, at least that's what I'm told
But if you learn one thing, you've learned it well
Until you must get past yourself, they'll run but they can't hide

You must stick up for yourself son, never mind what anybody else done
Stick up for yourself son, never mind what anybody else done (x3)

[And when those thunder clouds are crying in the skies, in the skies]
[And when those fireflies keep shining in your eyes, in your eyes]
[Keep your mind for the time, with your ass on the line]
[Keep your feet, feet sliding to the side, to the side]

Now the world can be an unfair place at times
But your lows will have their complement of highs
And if anyone should cheat you, take advantage of, or beat you
Raise your head and wear your wounds with pride

You must stick up for yourself son, never mind what anybody else done
Stick up for yourself son, never mind what anybody else done (x3)
