underdog lyrics – audio adrenaline

i am so weak and i’m so tired
it’s hard for me to
find enough strength to feed the fires
that fuel my ego
and consequently all my pride has all but died
which leaves me
down on my knees
back to the place i
should have started from

[chorus:]
been beat up
been broken down
nowhere but up
when you’re facedown
on the ground
i’m in last place
if i place at all
but there’s hope for this underdog!
that’s the way, uh-huh, we like it!
that’s the way, uh-huh, we like it!
you can call me the underdog

i’m in this race to win a prize
the odds against me
the world has plans for my demise
what they don’t see
is that a winner is not judged by his small size
but by the subst*tute he picks to run the race
and mine’s already won

[chorus]

(underdog.)
(i wince everytime i say the word.)
(especially in connection with jesus.)
(yet as i read the birth stories about jesus.)
i’ve been beat up
i’ve been broken down
(i can not help but conclude that although the world may be tilted toward the rich and powerful.)
no where to go when you’re face down on the ground.
i’m in last place
if a place at all.
(god, hallelujah in his mercy, is still on the side of the underdog!)
but there’s hope for this underdog.
that’s the way uh-huh we like it (uh-huh uh-huh)
that’s the way uh-huh we like it (uh-huh uh-huh)
that’s the way uh-huh we like it (uh-huh uh-huh)
that’s the way uh-huh we like it (uh-huh uh-huh)
that’s the way uh-huh we like it (uh-huh uh-huh)
that’s the way
that’s the way uh-huh we like it (uh-huh uh-huh)
that’s the way
uh-huh we like it.
we like it.
