GREAT BIG MAN


rust on your fingers • you've got rubbles at your feet
keep the home fires burning but look out for the heat
cause there's a man at the window who knows just what to think
and there's that water boy behind you who won't give you a drink
cause it's a hard, hard times • no easy roads in sight
it takes a great big man to make a great big fight

when it comes to dying • no matter what you tell
they'll let you into heaven cause you've lived your life in hell
well they've got no way to reward you but to let those breezes blow
and you've got nothing left to do but to let your anger show
cause it's a hard, hard times • no easy roads in sight
it takes a great big man to make a great big fight

think about your baby • think about your wife
think about your banker who's trying to take your life
think about this planet that's rolling through the night
then tell me can you turn your back to such a great big fight?

you've got your muscles big man • you've got the power
but you're getting weaker with each passing hour
just like flame in the rain • like a light in the night
well if it's you that must stay then it is you that must fight
cause it's a hard hard times • your future isn't bright
it takes a great big man to make a great big fight
