The Comeback Kid

by Vegas With Randolph

supported by



against all odds
you're out walking your underdog
the service door swings just for you
sweeping the floors and
doing step sister's chores
it's been a hard road
and that's the truth

long nights of training
getting ready for today
you may be down
but it's still your game
here comes the comeback
here comes the comeback
here comes the comeback kid

riding your black mount
on a field of green
knocking on the door
its hard to believe
the odds do not favor you
you're bound to lose
still half the bleachers
belong to you

trailing the whole game
fighting with everything you have
just as the fans start to give in
everyone is believing,
people on their feet screaming:
"here comes the comeback kid"

you can't win them all
and you know that's true
it's time for the other guy
to lose

seconds to go
your back's against the wall
searching for a way
to make it through
scraping along
the game is still alive
where's that swing door
you always use?

you're almost out of time
looks like you're going to fail
the fans are sure they cannot win

he comes from behind
puts it over the line
a roar from a prayer
fists pumping in air
everyone's cheering
he's so endearing
we all love the comeback kid
here comes the comeback
here comes the comeback
here comes the comeback kid
