See me hustle, feel my muscle, †††††††pumping iron,

trying to build my body, trying to lose my mind.

C††††††††††††††††††††††† - F††††††††††††††††††† †††- C

See me straining, †††††I'm in training,††††† pumping iron.

G†† †††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††F

I'm a diesel engine, I'm knocking, I'm knocking, I'm knocking,

2. Well, he's the one they'll choose, you know he just can't lose,

 

††† hear him knocking.
