The Wrestler
Have you ever seen a one-trick pony
In the field so happy and free?
If you've ever seen a one-trick pony
Then you've seen me

Have you ever seen a one-legged dog
Making his way down the street?
If you've ever seen a one-legged dog
Then you've seen me

Then you've seen me
I come and stand at every door
Then you've seen me
I always leave with less than I had before
Then you've seen me
But I can make you smile when the blood it hits the floor
Tell me, friend, can you ask for anything more?
Tell me, can you ask for anything more?

Have you ever seen a scarecrow
Filled with nothing but dust and weeds?
If you've ever seen that scarecrow
Then you've seen me

Have you ever seen a one-armed man
Punching at nothing but the breeze?
If you've ever seen a one-armed man
Then you've seen me

Then you've seen me
I come and stand at every door
Then you've seen me
I always leave with less than I had before
Then you've seen me
But I can make you smile when the blood it hits the floor
Tell me, friend, can you ask for anything more?
Tell me, can you ask for anything more?

These things that have comforted me I drive away
This place that is my home I cannot stay
My only faith's in the broken bones and bruises I display

Have you ever seen a one-legged man trying to dance his way free
If you've ever seen a one-legged man
Then you've seen me
