The Lyrics

it made a mess of me
but these broken bones are gonna mend

i'm bummin'...i got the blues
cause my poor body's...been so abused
took a broken ramp and went nowhere
i skidded for yards...i was really scared
there's a gash in my head and it feels caved in
it shook my body and made me spin
ha ha, buddy, if i end up lame
then i ain't got no one else to blame

knievel's zoomin'...(ol' knievel's zoomin')
knievel's zoomin'...(ol' knievel's zoomin')
knievel's zoomin'...(ol' knievel's zoomin')
knievel's zoomin'

rolled on till i broke my crown
saw my knee was kind of danglin' down
i'm a fool...let my bike just fly away
and i went kaboom...lyin' in a daze
ha ha buddy, think my life is through ?
i've destroyed all my vertabrae..so what's new ?
its no good to be feelin' pain
but when that crowd begins to roar...its hard to explain

knievel's zoomin'...(ol knievel's zoomin')
knievel's zoomin'...(ol' knievel's zoomin')
knievel's zoomin'...(ol' knievel's zoomin')
knievel's zoomin'

i'll be movin' when my legs get strong
but in this cast...its hard to get along
ha ha buddy...though i'm all broke up
i've got the spine to just suck it up
i went flyin' and i damn near died
thought i saw stuff...that should be inside
ha ha...i was dealt a blow
its off to the doc's place...here we go

knievel's zoomin'...(ol' knievel's zoomin')
knievel's zoomin'...(ol' knievel's zoomin')
knievel's zoomin'...(ol' knievel's zoomin')
knievel's zoomin'
