Lyrics

The Contender

E A
Why you gotta push the good people down
E B7
Why do you got to mess around
E A
Why you gotta act so dumb and loud
C#m F#7
Why you gotta go and do that now
E
Were all in a hole
B7
So jump in the ring
E
You’re a contender now


E A
We gotta pray for all those who’ve died
E B7
And we gotta pray for those still alive
E A
Why you gotta act so dumb and loud
C#m F#7
Why you gotta go and do that now
E
Were all in a hole
B7
So jump in the ring
E
You’re a contender now


A
We got human bombs building gravesites
C#m
We got smart bombs building more
F#7
We got bio-terror safety kits
B7
Being sold in convenience stores
A
We got all the guns and ammo
C#m
Look at all the people dead
F#7
So pick up your signs and speak your minds
B7
Cause something needs to be said

E A
Why you gotta push the good people down
E B7
Why do you got to mess around
E A
Why you gotta act so dumb and loud
C#m F#7
Why you gotta go and do that now
E
Were all in a hole
B7
So jump in the ring
E
You’re a contender now

E
Were all in a hole
B7
So jump in the ring
E
You’re a contender now
