Pumping Iron
writer: Marc Kuchner

I didn't always have the strength to handle things
In my life and set them right
You always treated me like I was second best
And I shut my eyes and let it slide
Afraid of hurtin

But every day I train by pumping iron
I learn to change the things I can control
Now I taste the sweat, take the pain, learn to love it
Say goodbye to the weakling
That would put up with your lying
Don't call me I'll be out pumping iron

I'm learning to break free from my hang-ups
I used to loathe my hair my clothes
Guess I've always carried weights on my shoulders
But now I let go, yeah I'm letting go
And it feels alright

And every day I train by pumping iron
I learn to change the things I can control
Now I taste the sweat, take the pain, learn to love it
Say goodbye to the weakling
That would put up with your lying
Don't call me I'll be out pumping iron

Someday, I might to see you again
Maybe you'll drive by the gym
Meet some of my new friends
I've told them all about you

And how every day I train by pumping iron
I learn to change the things I can control
Now I taste the sweat, take the pain, learn to love it
Say goodbye to the sweet thing
With the hurt that she was hiding
Don't call me I'll be out pumping iron
Yeah, pumping iron
