(feat. Lil Jon, John Rich and Mark McGrath)

[Meat Loaf with Mark McGrath:]
This town splits right down the middle
There's rich and poor, black and white
Right down thru the saints and the sinners
And the ones who might

This world is tough as a splinter
There's ones that flinch and ones that fight
Round here you can sure tell the difference
'tween the rocks and the rolling types

I know I'm gonna stick with ya
When the hard times hit

[Chorus:]
Somebody's gotta stand in the storm
In the lightning, when it pours
Be strong enough to lean on
Show you what a backbone's for

Somebody's gotta stand in the storm
Somebody's gotta stand

[John Rich with Mark McGrath:]
Well, nobody likes a white flag quitter
Leaves you there, tucks and runs
Life's comin' and it hits like a hammer
Kicks like a shotgun

I ain't out here looking for trouble
I'm no stranger to an uphill fight
You need a hand when it all starts slipping?
You can bet I'm-a hold on tight

Well, you know I'm gonna stick with ya
When the hard times hit

[Chorus:]
Somebody's gotta stand in the storm
In the lightning, when it pours
Be strong enough to lean on
Show you what a backbone's for

Somebody's gotta stand in the storm
Somebody's gotta stand in the storm

[Lil Jon:]
What?
What?
Okay
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

So tough, I keep it rough
Won't back down, I laugh at these clowns
Me and my crew, we keep it Trump-tight
Live yours boythis is my life
I stick my chest out so there's no doubt
I had enough, no trust, win I must
As I stomp through the rain
The pain rushes through my vein
But I still maintain
Nahhh!
Checked out, I'm off duty
Insane like Busey
Now who wants test weee?
Now see I'm the best at it
You just like the rest at it
I'm sick like a meth addict
But ain't no intervention
Just your apprehension
And then your dissension
Shots to your dome
Send you home
Screaming no backbone

'Cause I will show you what a backbone's for, baby
Let's go!

[Chorus (Lil Jon ad-libs):]
Somebody's gotta stand in the storm
In the lightning, when it pours
Be strong enough to lean on
Show you what a backbone's for

Somebody's gotta stand in the storm
In the lightning, when it pours
Be strong enough to lean on
Show you what a backbone's for

Somebody's gotta stand in the storm
[Lil Jon:] Somebody
Somebody's gotta stand in the storm

[Lil Jon:]
Show you what a backbone
Show you what a backbone
Show you what a backbone's for...

[Meat Loaf (Lil Jon ad-libs):]
Somebody's gotta stand in the storm
Somebody's gotta stand in the storm
Somebody gotta
Somebody gotta, yeah

Somebody's gotta stand in the storm...
