"I Got Knocked Down (But I'll Get Up)" as written by and Joey Ramone....
Sittin in a hospital bed
Sittin in a hospital bed
Sittin in a hospital bed
Sittin in a hospital bed

I, I want life
I want my life
I want my life
I want my life
It really sucks
It really sucks

Sittin in a hospital bed
Frustration goin through my head
Turn off the TV set
Take some drugs so I can forget

I, I want life
I want my life
I want my life
I want my life
It really sucks
It really sucks

I got knocked down but I'll get up
I got knocked down

    General CommentThis is a very powerful song when you take into consideration that Joey was in the throws of terminal illness at the time he wrote and recorded it. It is his last message to us.
