Oh, they like to get you in a compromising position.

D                                 G       A

for Round Five.'
           D                 G
He said , 'You don't need no strength, you need to 
A        D    G A
grow up, son.'
         D                   G               A
I said, 'Growing up leads to growing old and then 
   D     G A
to dying.
          D                 G          A             D

Well, I've been doing it since I was a young kid..
  A        D        G A
I come out grinnin'.
