LYRICS

Funny how people think that it all comes easy (nothing is easy)
Funny how people think because is black and white (black and white)

I’ve got a story to tell I went to heaven and hell
I went to watch the world go round (watch the world go round)
I wanna do it again and give a ten out a ten
And then I’ll watch the world go round (watch the world go round)
And yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah

Nothing is gonna stop me, you can’t stop me now
No no no no no
Nothing is gonna stop me, you can’t break me down
Come on and make my day (nothing’s gonna stop me)
Quit standing in my way e-yeah-e-yeah
Come on and make my day (nothing’s gonna stop me)
Quit standing in my way e-yeah-e-yeah

Funny how people think that I’m a parasite (what did I tell you)
Living of rock and all is not a half-assed life (what did I say)
If you got something to say you better say it to me
Cause I already disagree (watch the world)
And at the end of the day I’ve got a lot to say
You see this music came from me (watch the world go round)
You say-e-yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah-e

Nothing is gonna stop me,you can’t stop me now
No no no no no
Nothing is gonna stop me, you can’t break me down
Come on and make my day (nothing’s gonna stop me)
Quit standing in my way e-yeah-e-yeah
Come on and make my day (nothing’s gonna stop me)
Quit standing in my way e-yeah-e-yeah

La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la

Nothing is gonna stop me, you can’t stop me now
Nothing is gonna stop me, you can’t break me down
Come on and make my day (nothing’s gonna stop me)
Quit standing in my way e-yeah-e-yeah
Come on and make my day (nothing’s gonna stop me)
Quit standing in my way e-yeah-e-yeah

A-a-a-a-a-a-a-a, a-a-a-a
A-a-a-a-a-a-a-a, a-a-a-a
A-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a, a-a-a-a-a-a-a
