Back in timeI shed track of timeRolling on the roadChristmas eves and also valentinesSeem prefer the days beforeI came I went I did wellI did I really intended wellBut I virtually missed my beatSo give thanks to you for conserving me a seat

I swear ain’t nowhere greaterAin’t nowright here brighterAin’t nowhere much better, better, much better, betterAin’t no one prettierAin’t no one wiserAin’t nowhere much better, much better, much better, better

God is watching meGod don’t praise me bereason I beat Joe FrazierGod don’t offer nothing about Joe FrazierGod don’t treatment nopoint about England also or AmericaAs much as wealthIt’s all hisHe desires to understand exactly how perform we treat each other

I was a rockI was a rock and also rollerBack in my day (Back in my day)But now I’m simply a rock (I was a rock)I was a rock and rollerBack in my day (Back in my day)But currently I’m simply a rockI was a rock

Steady holdI’ve grvery own weary and also oldWe’re as cshed as we’ll ever before beI was gone I have actually areas to beAnd of course you’re in the area I look

I swear ain’t nowhere greaterAin’t nowright here brighterAin’t nowhere much better, better, much better, betterAin’t no one prettierAin’t no one wiserAin’t nowhere better, much better, much better, better

And I’m still standing hereStanding stillI won’t be movedHow used to when

I was a rockI was a rock and rollerBack in my day (Back in my day)But now I’m simply a rock (I was a rock)I was a rock and rollerBack in my day (Back in my day)But now I’m just a rockI was a rockI was a rockI was a rock and also rollerBack in my day (Back in my day)But now I’m simply a rock (I was a rock)I was a rock and also rollerBack in my day (Back in my day)But currently I’m just a rockI was a rock
