Champion of the World Lyrics

by Little Feat

Well I'm weak,
worthless,
...can't make up my mind.

When they handed out ambition,
I was next
to last
in line.

...Lost little lamb...
'til I found that girl...

When she holds me in her arms,
I'm the champion of the world.

I was drunk
on Monday,
standing at the bar,
when somebody said;
"Hey Mister,
could you help me start my car?"

I wouldn't know a sparkplug
from the Duke Of Earl,

But when I drive home to my baby...
I'm the champion of the world.

People talk
behind my back:
"How can she stay with a man like that?"

It ain't easy...
but Heaven knows she tries...

Ohh, They never see the sweetness
of the love there is between us
when she holds my hand
and looks me in the eye.

I'm a creep, I'm a coward...

on my hands and knees I crawl.

I fall apart under pressure,

I've got no back bone at all.

Daddy always told me...
I throw a baseball like a girl,

But when my baby holds me,
I'm the champion of the world.

When my baby holds me, I'm the champion of the world.
