Hey baby, what more can you tell?
The good Lord ring your front door bell
Though our love go down, don't cry
Thought I saw a man, yes, I fell in the ground

Here we go down now

Yeah, when you're alive
There's nothing but the powers that be

I know you're right
I know you're right

I know I...

Cause you're going down

Ah you're going down

Oh baby, what more can you tell?
Hey, the good Lord going to ring your front door bell
Ah shake your face, lose your place, shoot your mother-in-law, yeah
I think I saw her going down to Presa, Mexico

Here we go down now

Yeah, when you die
There's just nothing but the powers that be

I know you're right
I know you're right

I know

You're going down

You're going down
You're going down
Uh yes sir

Yes sir, I'm going down
All right, if you want to bite your leg, shoot your mother-in-law
You better (...)  floor
To tell your kids to do your business
(...) your problem at your iron fist
Sit on the ground, never look around
Keep on moving on the (...) be pushed around
Hey help me now (...)
Hey yeah
