Can

Can't Keep A Good Man Down

The Jets

(Ray Cotton, KRYPTON 1988)

Well, ringin' on the frontdoor, knockin' on the back
Half around the world, ain't never comin' back
Ain't nothing special, ain't never gonna stop
Come on honey, 'cause you make me wanna rock
You can scream like a cat and hoot like an owl
You can't keep a good man down

Well, I need a little joint I can show off my style
Makin' sort-a rockin' that I learned down the Nile
Swingin' on a tree, beatin' on a drum
We make a lot of noise, but we have a lot of fun
Scream like a cat and hoot like an owl
You can't keep a good man down

Well, you can't keep a good man down
I tried to beat the pace, a smile upon my face
No, you can't keep a good man down
All I wanna do is join the happy crew
And make a real goner real wild

Well, ringin' on the frontdoor, knockin' on the back
Half around the world, ain't never comin' back
Ain't nothing special, ain't never gonna stop
Come on honey, 'cause you make me wanna rock
You can scream like a cat, hoot like an owl
But you can't keep a good man down
All right!

You can't keep a good man down
I tried to keep the pace, a smile upon my face
No, you can't keep a good man down
All I wanna do is join the happy crew
And make a real goner real wild

Well, ringin' on the frontdoor, knockin' on the back
Half around the world, ain't never comin' back
Ain't nothing special, ain't never gonna stop
Come on honey, 'cause you make me wanna rock
But if you scream like a cat and hoot like an owl
You can't keep a good man down
Go!

You can't keep a good man down
I tried to beat the pace, a smile upon my face
No, you can't keep a good man down
All I wanna do is join the happy crew
And make a real goner real wild

Well, ringin' on the frontdoor, knockin' on the back
All around the world, ain't never comin' back
Ain't nothing special, ain't never gonna stop
'Cause little honey, you make me wanna rock
Scream like a cat and hoot like an owl
But you can't keep a good man down-down
Down-down, down-down, down!
