Song Meaning
Verse 1
Woke up with a heavy head
And I thought about leavin' town
I could have died if I wanted to
Slipped over the edge and drowned
But, oh no baby, I won't give up that easy, no
Verse 2
Too many tire tracks in the sands of time
Too many love affairs that stop on a dime
Oh well, oh baby
I think it's time to make some changes 'round here
Verse 3
Yeah, I'm gonna tear it up
Gonna trash it up
I'm gonna round it up
Gonna shake it up
Oh, no, baby, I will not lie down
Verse 4
I'm brave enough to be crazy
I'm strong enough to be weak
I see all these heroes with feet of clay
Whose mighty ships have sprung a leak
And I want you to tell me darlin'
Just what do you believe in now?
Verse 5
Well, c'mon over here baby
You 'bout to gimme a heart attack
I want to wrap my lovin' arms
Around the small of your back
Yeah, and I'm gonna pull you, pull you, pull you
Pull you right up close to me, yeah
Verse 6
Yeah we're gonna tear it up
We gonna trash it up
Gonna round it up
Gonna shake it up
Oh, no no no, I will not lie down
Verse 7
Turn this thing around
I will not go quietly
I will not lie down
I will not go quietly
I will not lie down
I will not go quietly
I will not lie down
No, I will not lie down, no
Verse 8
Well, don't you ever get lonely?
Don't you ever get down?
Don't you ever get tired of all the wicked tongues in this town?
Uh baby, I just want to take you away from here
Verse 9
I ain't no tiger
I ain't no little lamb
Suppose you tell me mama
Who do you think I think I am?
And ooh baby, don't you give a damn?
Verse 10
Yeah, I'm gonna tear it up
Gonna trash it up
Gonna round it up
Gonna sake it up
Uh baby, I will not lie down
Verse 11
Turn this thing around
I will not go quietly
I will not lie down
I will no go quietly
I will not lie down
I will no go quietly
I will not lie down
No, I will not lie down
