He once believed in a prayer
well hold up….hold up
There’s a doctor and a lawyer and a millionaire
hold up….hold up
And I got news for them fellas drinkin’ over there
hold up….hold up

So stop the noise
Let all them girls and boys
Let em know to hold up

You don’t believe who I am
well hold up….hold up
I seen a naked martyr in a traffic jam
hold up….hold up
The grass is always greener when it’s planted with a lonesome hand
hold up….hold up

So stop the noise
Let all them girls and boys
Let em know to hold up

And I don’t care if I sing out of tune
I’ll tell em every man’s on fire
I’ll tell em every man’s got blues
and I wonder if you could walk a mile
if you walked it in my shoes
cause I know a lesser man can win
while the better man can lose

Well hold up….hold up. Hold up

Everyone’s runnin’ down a different walk of life
No-one gives a damn and no-one spares a dime
and if there were a mirror on every sidewalk
nobody would move and no-one would talk
but God ain’t that funny so people keep on running
straight to the bank so they can count their
And everyone’s got plans but no-one’s got the time
they’re waitin’ on the teller to say “hey, next in line”
and in walks a naked dude holding up a gun
he’s waiving it around and telling everyone to hold up.
