Lyrics

I'm slow as a horse
With a broken leg
On the field trying to make my way
To find some hay
You gotta help a brother out
'Cause I don't want to be alone
I want to be the center of attention
Is that too much to ask? No
Too much to ask? No
I think I'm normal
I think everybody feels like this
I think everybody wants a bit of this
And ??? to be normal

Don't give it up, no, don't give it up, no
Don't give it up, don't give it up
Don't give it up, no, don't give it up, no
Don't give it up, don't give it up

What's the purpose of life?
There's gotta be something more
Than getting to the top of the mountain
And what do you do when you get there?
You look around
And you see for miles and miles
But it don't do you no good, no
It don't do you no good
I wanna help someone
I wanna help you out
I wanna give you a lift
I wanna show you what you could do
I wanna give you faith
I wanna help someone

Don't give it up, no, don't give it up, no
Don't give it up, don't give it up
Don't give it up, no, don't give it up, no
Don't give it up, don't give it up

Keep on keeping on
...
Don't give it up, don't give it up

Doo-doo-doo

If you fuck with us, we're gonna fuck with you
If you fuck with us, we're gonna fuck with you
If you fuck with us, we're gonna fuck with you
If you fuck with us, we're gonna fuck with you

Don't give it up, no, don't give it up, no
Don't give it up, don't give it up
Don't give it up, no, don't give it up, no
Don't give it up, don't give it up

Keep on keeping on
...
Don't give it up, don't give it up

I want to live forever
Don't let me go
I want to live forever
Don't let me go
I want to live for whoa-oh
Singin' whoa-oh
