DON?T LISTEN

?You?re too small, to play ball!?
Coach Jackson used to scream,
Said I?d never make the team,
But I didn?t give up on that dream.

I lived in, that old gym,
Spent all summer on the court,
Up and down that parquet floor,
Until the day Coach gave me a uniform.

Well, he was the first in a long line,
To get it wrong the first time.

CHORUS
Like every skeptic, every cynic,
Every small-time, smart-ass critic,
They taught me one lesson, don?t listen.
Every insult, every slight,
Every stick of verbal dynamite,
Taught me one lesson, don?t listen.

Kim was eighteen, the prom queen,
Way out of my league,
That?s what everyone believed,
But she saw something they didn?t see.

And after ten years, she?s still here,
Her diamond ring is my grandmom?s.
And everyone that got it wrong,
Likes to tell me they knew all along.

Funny how people forget,
They thought the opposite,

REPEAT CHORUS

Some people spend their lives on the sidelines,
Never try ?cuz they can?t survive the criticism.
The toughest critic you?ll find, is the one in your mind,
And you don?t have to listen, to ?

Every skeptic, every cynic,
Every small-time, smart-ass critic,
Learn this lesson, don?t listen.
Every insult, every slight,
Every stick of verbal dynamite,
Will teach you one lesson, don?t listen.
Yeah, learn this lesson, don?t listen.
