Little boy walks in with a bloody nose
Got beat up on his way home from school again
His dad caught him running out the back
Tears in his eyes and a baseball bat, ooh revenge

Said, "Son I won't stop ya but before you go
Let me tell you a little story 'bout the toughest man I know

You hit him and he just turns the other cheek
But don't think for a minute he was weak
'Cause in the end he showed them he was anything but frail
They hammered him to a cross but he was tougher than nails"

Well he dropped that bat like it weighed a ton
Father put his arms around his son and said, "Just let it go"
Believe me I've been in your shoes had to ask myself
"What would Jesus do?" And here's what I know

Whenever I'm in doubt I look up what he said
It's all there in the good book in black and white and red

Hit him and he just turns the other cheek
But don't think for a minute he was weak
'Cause in the end he showed them he was anything but frail
They hammered him to a cross but he was tougher than nails

Yeah, in the end he showed them he was anything but frail
They hammered him to a cross but he was tougher than nails
Tougher than nails, oh, oh, oh
