A cover of TMBG's "Can't Keep Johnny Down" Everyone needs a little self pep talk now and then.

Outnumbered a million to one
All of the dicks in this dick town
Can't keep Ian down
Men piled up in a towering mound
None of them once has found a way
To keep Ian down

… Spending days by myself
Remembering slights
I'm not a monument to justice
Plus which I don't forget a face

… And they can't (down, down, down)
Can't keep Ian down (down, down, down)
They haven't yet built the man (down, down, down)
That'll keep old Ian down (down, down, down)

… Some dude
Hitting golf balls on the moon
Bathroom in his pants
And he thinks he's better than me
I'm pointing a finger at my own face
They can't know what's in here
And they can't keep Ian down

… Beneath my dignity
To flip off the guy
When he pulls up alongside
To say my gas cap is unscrewed

… And they can't (down, down, down)
Can't keep Ian down (down, down, down)
They haven't yet built the man (down, down, down)
That'll keep old Ian down (down, down, down)

… And they don't (down, down, down)
Don't know what I've seen (down, down, down)
They can't know what's in here (down, down, down)
And they can't keep Ian down (down, down, down)

Very nice! This version sounds like a song from the 60's Flower Power Age...

Dear Ian,

No, they can't keep you down no matter what, brother! But they will try, and you won't let them get to you, my good friend! A great bright colorful Intro. and then that superb and expressive voice of yours takes me on a ride; a cool ride, Ian! You are bold and brilliant, Ian, and I will always have a great fondness for you, man! You have a voice of pure, clear, and exuberant gold, Ian! Very Much Enjoy! Clay Brian Wilson 10,000 Suns! 💯👍👍👍👍👍 P.S. Please stay in touch and let me know how you are doing, Ian? God bless you!
