Sammy Hagar – Top Of The Rock lyrics

I've taken a lot of lip
Just to be what I am
You think it's tough, bein' a kid
Well try bein' a man sometime
Everybody wants a little piece
Or they try to shoot you down
Well I just tell 'em, "sit on this"
And spin around, Yeah!
It ain't easy, speakin' out
Some people take it to heart
And if you ain't standin' on top of the rock
They'll try and tear you apart
I look for the hard way
I own the game you fear
And it got me in a lot of trouble
But, it also got me here
Standin' on top
Top of the rock
Standin' on top
Top of the rock
I may not be, a business man
I ain't no fast, slick talker
But you just ask the kid in the street
(heh, damn)
I'm a rocker
Everybody wants a little piece
And they try to shoot me down
Yeah, well I tell them to "sit on this"
And take a spin around
{guitar solo}
I took 4 the hard way
I know the game you fear
Yeah, she got me in a lot of trouble
And it also got me here
(close, Whoo!)
Standin' on top - of - the- rock
Yeah, and I ain't comin' down, baby
