(take 1)
[Let's hope this one truns out pretty darn good, huh?]
You telling lies thinking I can't see
You can't cry 'cause you're laughing at me
I'm down
I'm down
I'm down
How can you laugh when you know I'm down
When you know I'm down

Man buys ring woman throws it away
Same old thing happens everyday
I'm down
I'm down
I'm down
Ah how can you laugh when you know I'm down
When you know I'm down

Ow!
Ow ho! Ooow!

We're all alone and there's nobody else
You still moan, "Keep your hands to yourself!"
I'm down
I'm down
I'm down
Ah how can you laugh when you know I'm down
How can you laugh when you know I'm down
Waaaao ho!
[Keep going.]

Ooh yeah!
Ow! Brrr!
Arf! Arf! Arf!

Oh baby you know I'm down
Oh yes I'm down
Don't you know I'm down
I'm down
Yeah, I'm down, down, down, down, down, down, down
I'm down
Oh baby I'm down
I'm down on the ground
I'm down
Oh yeah
I'm down
Down on the ground yeah
Oh baby I'm down yeah
Now down on the ground yeah
Well yes I'm down

[Hey, it's really good.

Plastic soul, man, plastic soul.
Plastic soul, man, dig that.]
