Lyrics

I have got some skills
That can pay the bills
And I am a kind of winner
But I'm not the type
That the young girls like
Or your parents ask to dinner
I am just a guy
I know how to try
And I will give my very best
Until the day I die

Alright, okay
There's nothing left to say
I'm the leader of the pack
And they jump when they hear the whip crack
Alright, it's cool
There's nothing left to do
I'm the leader of the pack
And they jump when they hear the whip crack

In the place I'm from
Anyone can run
And become the hometown hero
If you start some smack
You will get hit back
And your prospects will be zero
I may not look strong
But I can prove you wrong
And I think that I just might teach
The world to sing along

Alright, okay
There's nothing left to say
I'm the leader of the pack
And they jump when they hear the whip crack
Alright, it's cool
There's nothing left to do
I'm the leader of the pack
And they jump when they hear the whip crack

Me and the boys are rockin' out
Tearin' up the stage
Every night turn we it on
And then we turn the page
When we feel the chemistry
You don't get in the way
If you try to stop us
We're gonna make you pay
I'm comin' home

Alright, okay
There's nothing left to say
I'm the leader of the pack
And they jump when they hear the whip crack
Alright, it's cool
There's nothing left to do
I'm the leader of the pack
And they jump when they hear the whip crack
And they jump when they hear the whip crack
And they jump when they hear the whip crack

Alright, alright
Alright, alright
