"Can't Keep a Good Man Down" as written by and Randy Newman....
Everybody, gather 'round me
I got somethin' I wanna tell you

Listen, when you're on the bottom like I am today
Those around you are losing faith in what you're tryin' to do
There is only one thing a man can say
'You can't keep a good man down'

There've been mistakes and I've made a few
But oh, what a price I had to pay
Yet still they try to push me around
But they can't keep a good man down

There may be times when I'm feelin' low
I lose sight of the dream
But that's alright 'cause soon I know
I'll be back on top again, runnin' things, hey, hey

Treat a man like dirt, give him no respect for who he is
Expect something dirty in return
Oh, they're flyin' high up there, they've got a lot to learn
Because you can't keep a good man down

They shame me, blame me, tryin' to frame me
But they can't keep a good man
They can't keep a good man
They can't keep a good man down, whoa, whoa, whoa
They can't keep a good man down
