Woke up with a heavy head
And I thought about leavin' town
I could have died if I wanted to
Slipped over the edge and drowned
But, oh no baby, I won't give up that easy, no

Too many tire tracks in the sands of time
Too many love affairs that stop on a dime
Oh well, oh baby
I think it's time to make some changes 'round here

Yeah, I'm gonna tear it up
Gonna trash it up
I'm gonna round it up
Gonna shake it up
Oh, no, baby, I will not lie down

I'm brave enough to be crazy
I'm strong enough to be weak
I see all these heroes with feet of clay
Whose mighty ships have sprung a leak
And I want you to tell me darlin'
Just what do you believe in now?

Well, c'mon over here baby
You 'bout to gimme a heart attack
I want to wrap my lovin' arms
Around the small of your back
Yeah, and I'm gonna pull you, pull you, pull you
Pull you right up close to me, yeah

Yeah we're gonna tear it up
We gonna trash it up
Gonna round it up
Gonna shake it up
Oh, no no no, I will not lie down

Turn this thing around
I will not go quietly
I will not lie down
I will not go quietly
I will not lie down
I will not go quietly
I will not lie down
I will not lie down, no

Well, don't you ever get lonely?
Don't you ever get down?
Don't you ever get tired of all the wicked tongues in this town?
Of, baby, I just want to take you away from here

I ain't no tiger
I ain't no little lamb
Suppose you tell me mama
Who do you think I think I am?
And ooh baby, don't you give a damn?

Yeah, I'm gonna tear it up
Gonna trash it up
Gonna round it up
Gonna rip it up
I will not lie down

Yeah I'm gonna tear it up
Gonna trash it up
Gonna round it up
Gonna shake it up
Oh baby, I will not lie down

Turn this thing around
I will not go quietly
I will not lie down
I will no go quietly
I will not lie down
I will not lie down
