Everybody got somebody
Trying to make you feel real bad
Ain't none of their business
Talking behind your back
Be strong in yourself
Stand up - walk away
Nobody gives a damn for a 
Single thing you say

Iím singing
Stay on top - never go under
Lightning strikes
Before you hear the thunder
Stay on top - never go under
Hold on tight
Here comes the thunder

Hide money in your pocket
Be nobodyís fool
Always think I'm number one
Thatís my golden rule
Take care of business
Go for it with the best
Be strong enough to take it
Ainít no need to rest

Iím singing
Stay on top - never go under
Lightning strikes
Before you hear the thunder
Stay on top - never go under
Hold on tight
Watch out for the thunder

Bad times make you cry
But the good times get you high
I canít stand it
I canít stand it no more
I canít stand it
I canít stand it no more
I canít stand it
I canít stand it
I canít stand it no more

Somebody, everybody
Trying to make you feel real bad
Ain't nobodyís business
Talking behind your back
Be strong in yourself
Stand up - walk away
Nobodyís gonna listen
To a single word you say

Stay on top - never go under
Lightning strikes
Before you hear the thunder
Stay on top - never go under
Hold on tight
Look out for the thunder

Stay on top
Youíve got to stay on top
Stand up and sing it
Stay on top
Take care of business
Stay on top
