This weight is weighin' on my heart
This weight is tearin' us apart
This weight is weighin' on my soul
And it just won't leave me alone

You know, I'm talkin' about this weight
You know, I'm talkin' about this weight

In the neighborhood people watchin' me
Got to move to protect my sanity
Anonymity is all I want you see
You may think it's mediocrity

But you know, I'm talkin' about this weight
You know, I'm talkin' about this weight

You know, Hollywood ain't no good
I would rather be like Robin Hood
If I could only lose this

You know, I'm talkin' about this weight
You know, I'm talkin' about this weight

And this Hollywood, oh, it ain't no good
I would rather be like Robin Hood
If I could only lose this

You know, I'm talkin' about this weight
You know, I'm talkin' about this weight

In the very first, it was rock and roll
Set me free in body and soul
But this weight is just bringing me down
It's never satisfied every time I go to town

You know, I'm talkin' about this weight
You know, I'm talkin' about this weight

You know, I'm talkin' about this weight
You know, I'm talkin' about this weight

You know, I'm talkin' about this weight
You know, I'm talkin' about this weight
