GOIN' DOWN SWINGIN'

When you broke my heart

I knew right from the start

That you were gone for good

And them blues I would be singiní

But now Iím drinkiní every night

Danciní beneath these neon lights

I may be goingí down

But Iím Goiní Down Swinginí

 

I got laid off last week

You might say Iím up a creek

Without a paddle

And I donít feel much like swimminí

Now my bankrollís weariní thin

Yes Iím surely near the end

Tonight Iím goiní down

But Iím Goiní Down Swinginí

 

It might be hard to understand

What can happen to a man

When his ship goes down

And he starts sinkiní

In some strangerís arms Iíll be

Danciní with your memory

Tonight Iím goiní down

But Iím Goiní Down Swinginí
