Lyrics

(Paul Barrere)
Well I’m weak, worthless, can’t make up my mind
When they handed out ambition I was next to last in line
Lost little lamb ’til I found that girl
When she holds me in her arms, I’m the champion of the world

(Jimmy Buffett)
I was drunk on Monday standing at the bar
When somebody said “Hey Mister, could you help me start my car?”
I wouldn’t know a sparkplug from the Duke Of Earl
But when I drive home to my baby I’m the champion of the world

People talk behind my back “How can she stay with a man like that?”
It ain’t easy but Heaven knows she tries
Ohh, They never see the sweetness of the love there is between us
When she holds my hand and looks me in the eye

(Paul Barrere)
I’m a creep, I’m a coward on my hands and knees I crawl
(Jimmy Buffett)
I fall apart under pressure, I’ve got no back bone at all
(Paul Barrere)
Daddy always told me I throw a baseball like a girl
(Jimmy Buffett)
But when my baby holds me I’m the champion of the world
(Paul Barrere)
When my baby holds me
(Both)
I’m the champion of the world
