Lyrics

That's pride you see in the boxer's eyes
Kneeling on the mat

He knows that he's been beaten

But he's not finished, yet

'Cause quittin's worse than spittin' blood

And livin' with the hurt

And every memory that he has

Is of the rising From the dirt

 

Sometimes, pride is all you have

And that can be enough

'Cause pride will push you to the edge

And it will make you tough

Money buys the best of things

You will never know defeat

And you can watch that boxer

Safe there in your front row seat

 

CH:

Rich boys go to college

Poor boys go to work

They sweat and toil their lives away

Never far above that dirt

Rich men live in gated homes

And they hide behind their walls

But they'll never know how sweet the pride

That goes before the fall

 

Pride goes before the fall, they say

And God will help the poor

But ask for proof of either one

And they'll be out the door

'Cause camels pass through needles' eyes

And rich men own the world

And poor men work themselves to death

Still believing in the Lord repeat

 

CH:

 

Pride goes before the fall

And God will surely help the poor

Rich men own the world

The poor don't even own the dirt

But quittin's worse than spittin' blood

And livin' with the hurt

And every memory that you have

Is of the rising from that dirt

 

Rich men live in gated homes

And they hide behind their walls

But they will never know how sweet the pride

That goes before the fall
