Stood Up Lyrics

I stood up for the first time
When I was just eleven months old
And ever since that day, my mama said
I never done what I was told

I never stood for nothing too much
All through my schooling years
But I stood as much as I could stand
I guess that's why I'm still standing here
Yes, and

Chorus:
I stood up
When love called my name, baby
I stood up
Even when that love was all in vain, baby
I got stood up once
And left out in the pouring rain, baby
But I stood up
And I'd do it again

I guess she never understood what she could do
With all her flaming red hair
But I could not stand the heat in her kitchen
So, jack, I got out of there
I stood up to get a pack of cigarettes
Down at the corner store
New she's standing in some corner of my heart
Behind the kitchen screen door

Chorus

I don't know about you
But there's a lot of things I never stood up to
Even as I turned and walked away
I guess that's why I'm standing on my own
Two feet today

Now they gave last call for alcohol
And no one has to carry me home
You see I only work here now man
My drinking days are long gone

I couldn't stand up after one, no
'til twenty had me down on the floor
Now the first one doesn't get me
Even though I'm still the last one out the door

Chorus
