Stood Up by James Reyne

I stood up for the first time when I was just eleven months old
And ever since that day mama said I never done what I was told
I never stood for nothing too much all through my schooling years
But I stood as much as I could stand
I guess that's why I'm still standing here
Chorus ~
And then I stood up when love called my name baby
I stood up even when that love was all in vain baby
I got stood up once and left out in the pouring rain baby
And then I stood up and I'll do it again
Guess I never understood what she could do with all that flaming red hair
I could not stand the heat in the kitchen so Jack I got on out of there
I stood up to get a pack of cigarettes down at the corner store
And now she's standing in some corner of my heart behind the kitchen
Screen door
I don't know about you
There's a lot of things I never stood up to
Even when I turn and walk away
I guess that's why I'm standing on my own two feet today
They gave last call for alcohol and no one has to carry me home
You see I only work here now man
My drinking days are long gone
I couldn't stand up after one no
'Till twenty had me down on the floor
The first one doesn't get you
Even though I'm still the last one out the door
