"Can't Keep a Good Man Down" as written by and Bob Corbin....
I thought it was forever
I thought it would last
Gotta try to make it
A page of my past
You didn't even say goodbye
When you slammed that door

Now I'm lyin' here alone
In what once was our bed
Trying to forget
All the cruel words you said
All the radio was playing
What once was our favorite song

Oh enough is enough I won't take anymore
I'm picking myself up off the floor

'Cause you can't keep a good man down
You can't keep a good man down
Oh no you can't keep a good man down
Sugar, you can't keep a good man down

Gonna dress up in my finest
Clothes that I own
And take it to the streets
I won't be lonely for long
Gonna put on my best moves
On every single woman I see

Now you thought you could break me
Add me to your list
Notch me on your gun
Let me tell you this
I've got news for you baby
I don't break that easily

'Cause you can't keep a good man down
You can't keep a good man down
Oh no you can't keep a good man down
Sugar, you can't keep a good man down

I'll be out there on the scene
Hangin' with my friends
This world's gonna see
Me smilin' again
I'm taking some time
To erase you from my memory

Don't write any letters
Don't call me on the phone
Don't knock on my door
Cause to you I'm not at home
I know there's a woman out there
For a man like me

'Cause you can't keep a good man down
You can't keep a good man down
Oh no you can't keep a good man down
Sugar, you can't keep a good man down

Oh enough is enough I won't take anymore
I'm picking myself up off the floor

'Cause you can't keep a good man down
Baby, you can't keep a good man down
Honey, you can't keep a good man down
Sugar, you can't keep a good man down

    General CommentA transformational little ditty about a man who decides to cure his broken-heartedness with a whole lot of whore-mongering, followed by a flat refusal to welcome back the woman he once loved and in whom he made a considerable emotional investment.
