about

Some people get a real hard time for going out and doing the best they can. Here's a song for everybody who gets back up after getting knocked down.

lyrics

Here comes this kid from Wisconsin nobody has ever even heard his stuff
He gets that job with the star on his hat and they say he ain’t good enough
He gets knocked down and gets back almost every single time
I’m going to sing a song about him if you don’t mind

So I tip my hat to a heck of a man, not everbody get criticitized for doing the best they can
I don’t care what the people say those guys are big that ground ain’t soft
The man’s name is Tony Romo, if you don’t like him you can go shove off

He has to play with giants, big and mean and they’d just as soon as take his head
He’s got to stay smart when they knock him around and the people want him dead
There’s times he disappointed like the Detroit or Thanksgiving with Green Bay
But I remember that time in San Francisco he saved the day

So I tip my hat to heck up a guy who gets up when others might just lay there and die
Getting hit ain’t easy, cause man that ground ain’t soft
The man is named Tony Romo, and if you don’t like him you just shove off

Lots of people say that the measure of a man is giving it all he’s got
Staying in there and taking your licks while people take their shots
Well here’s a man who gets back up no matter how hard the fall
And I don’t care what the rulebook says Dez Bryant, he caught the ball

So I tip my hat to a heck of a man, who no one say that he ain’t giving it all he can
He has earned my respect cause man that ground ain’t soft
Yes that man is named Tony Romo, and if you don’t like him you can just shove off
Yes that man is named Tony Romo, and if you don’t like him you can just shove off
