As simple as breathing
and a lack of compassion
He's plugging the square peg,
straight into the square hole
And leaves by the back door
all laughing about it
Not fun or quick-witted
Just dumb-energetic
He's wearing the tracksuit
And cranking the stop-clock
Wind up the whip hand
A fair bit of practice
A crack of the knuckles
You give him the eyeball
And fall in the gutter
A kick at the rib-cage
He's pumped and he's sneary
Breathes out like a prize bull
He longs for the finish
Go stamping on heads now
And given the green lightweight
He would be the killer
No nimble free-former
He's the idiot bouncer

Do you wanna bounce?

Don't reckon on questions
Or rarefied answers
If it moves then he'll swat it
If it buzzes he'll stop it
The age is a problem
He's all physically withered
But he won't take the pity
The almighty did find him
He's liking the hell-fire
And the battle of sermons
Just to bounce with a harsh word
And the smell of the fearful
Only carries the worry
And it nags and it eats him
Now if all is confession
And there's truth in the story
The gates are wide open
Angels dragging him through them
He's deep and still yearning
There's no idiot bouncing

Do you wanna bounce?
You wanna bounce
