"If your teeth get kicked in, replace 'em, and turn the other cheek And let that son of a bitch kick 'em back out again, And ROLL WITH THE PUNCHES!" Doin' my private paper chase, yes I'm readin' 'bout King Lear Along comes some uppity foreigner singin' "Future shock is here!" And I gotta roll with the punches Gotta roll with the punches Gotta roll with the punches else they might eat me for breakfast, too. Women are fine and women are sweet: hanks of hair and piece of bone But even President Tito's leavin' Mrs. T. at home He's gotta roll with the punches He's gotta roll with the punches Gotta roll with the punches else they might eat him for breakfast, too. You know I love the ladies, they're as juicy as can be But all I want for Christmas is a penicillin tree I gotta roll with the punches Better roll with my punches Better keep rollin' each night with my punches else I'll get eaten for breakfast, too. Rollin' ...gonna play it one time... In my years of healthy travel, had a million just like you You got hardening of the arteries and you're barely 22... You better roll with the punches Gotta roll with my punches Better keep rollin' each night with my punches, else they might eat me for breakfast, too.
