I would walk ten miles on my hands and knees Ain't no doubt about it baby, it's you I aim to please I'd wrestle with a lion and a grizzly bear It's my life baby but I don't care. Ain't that tough enough? Ain't that tough enough? Ain't that tough enough? Ain't that tough enough? For you baby I would swim the sea Nothin' I'd do for you that's too tough for me I'd put out a burnin' building with a shovel and dirt And not even worry about getting hurt
