Down For The Count

Down For The Count

It's hard to get too close to me,
'cause you'd have to break the rules.
But you can knock me down real hard
just like those other fools.

I'll spare you all the details,
of how much it hurts to fall.
I'll just say this; I hate that big old
heavy, round black ball.

I have nine friends around me
which is really a great feeling,
until that mean ball rolls at us
and sends us all a-reeling.

I consider myself a stand-up guy,
which is why my life seems so unfair.
But despite all my troubles, I still always laugh
at those ugly shoes you have to wear!
