"Nothing's Gonna Bring Me Down" as written by and David Francis Baerwald....
It's a Sunday in the city
everybody's on parade
hot dog music fills the air
the bongo players play
a man with a megaphone
says we are all slaves
what else is new?
I just keep on walking
roller skating girls twirl
in the dying sun
waves crash on the shoreline
the day's about done
I turn the corner
blind my eyes in the sun
I just keep on walking

nothing's gonna bring me down
I feel so fine

all the knick knack vendors
fold their tents up in the shade
gangsters stand around them
drinking beer and lemonade
throw away my cigarette
thinking maybe I'll quit today
give a cough and
I keep on walking
love is eternal as long as it lasts
good times come
then they pass
a brother staggers into me
eyes like bloody glass
I give him change
and I keep on walking

nothing's gonna bring me down
I feel so fine

sometimes it gets so ugly
all you can do is crack sick jokes
a little cyanide humor
about lamp shades and soap
me I'm pretty sick of that
how bout faith or even hope
it's time to tease the dogs a bit
it's time to pull the rope
it's cleanup time!

nothing's gonna bring me down
I feel so fine
