"18 Wheeler" as written by Alecia B Moore and Dallas L Austin....
Can't keep me down
Can't keep me down, no

Hey, hey, man
What's your problem
I see you try to hurt me bad
Don't know what you're up against

Maybe you should reconsider,
come up with another plan
Cause you know I'm not that kind of girl
that'll lay there, let you come first

You can push me out the window
I'll just get back up
You can run me over with your 18 wheeler truck
and I won't give a f---
You can hang me like a slave
I'll go underground
You can run me over with your 18 wheeler but
you can't keep me down

Hey, hey, girl
Are you ready for today
You got your shield and sword
cause it's time to play the games

You are beautiful even though you're not for sure
Don't let him pull you by your skirt
You're gonna get your feelings hurt

You can push me out the window
I'll just get back up
You can run me over with your 18-wheeler truck
and I won't give a f---
You can hang me like a slave
I'll go underground
You can run me over with your 18-wheeler but
you can't keep me down

Everywhere that I go
there's someone waiting to chain me
Everything that I say,
there's someone trying to shortchange me
I am only this way
cause of what you have made me
And I'm not gonna break

You can push me out the window
I'll just get back up
You can run me over with your 18-wheeler truck
and I won't give a f---
You can hang me like a slave
I'll go underground
You can run me over with your 18-wheeler but
you can't keep me down

    General CommentI think this song means she wont take any crap from anyone. Wont let anyone bring her down no matter what because she's stronger than that. I love this song.

    General Commenti don't get why she can't swear on the song. u can tell what she is going to say and she could release 2 albums, a clean 1 and a parental guidence 1. i love this song, very powerful.

    General CommentMaybe she doesn't swear because it's so obvious what she's gonna say she doesn't need to say it, and therefore, keeping it clean for the kids!

    Rockin song!

    General CommentThis song was my warm-up song for my jazz dance class. I woke up from a general anaesthetic with it running through my head. It's a cool song, always makes me want to dance. Great lyrics as well.

    General Commentgood tune. It kind of says, "you can't walk all over me, because if you do I'll kick your ass".

    General CommentTo me I think this song means that there's alot of people and most of them will try to change, degrate, an' brake you. But you just have to stand your ground, be strong n kick a$$.
