Back Foot Lyrics by Dinosaur Pile-Up
Album: Celebrity Mansions
Released: May 3, 2019
Genre: Rock


Mama always told me, “Be a man”
That I should get my s--- together for real while I can
Like yeah, whatever
I said “Mama, you don’t understand”
‘Cause I’m gon’ be stupid famous and rocking in a band
Yeah, you know
Couple years later, here I am
I’m living the big city life, just doing what I can to get by
Waiting tables, yeah, I’m working for the man
And you know
Lately, it’s starting to feel awful like

I’m always on the back foot
Yeah, I’m always on the back foot, yeah
I’m always on the, woo (Yeah)
It’s like I’m always on the back foot, yeah

Everybody says that I’m a slob
That I’m a waste of space and super lazy, oh my god
Like yeah, whatever
I’ll be right here, sleeping on the job
Getting paid £6.80 to wait on tables of rich ladies and their dogs
I wish that I had more than I got
I wish I was on Conan and was rollin’ at the top
I wish I was a billionaire and balling like The Rock
But you know
Lately, it’s starting to feel awful like

I’m always on the back foot
Yeah, I’m always on the back foot, yeah
I’m always on the, woo (Yeah)
It’s like I’m always on the back foot, yeah

Now that you know me
Yeah, back foot, I’m always on the back foot
Now that you know me, yeah

Yeah, you know
People always hating what I got
They talking s--- about me ’cause I’m wicked and they not
Like yeah, whatever
All you jealous b------ know you want
A piece of my sickness, my precious business, my vision
Commitment, sheer perseverance
My feeling, my rhythm, my talent and what?
Uh-huh, uh-huh
I’m gonna go ahead and tell you what
I’m gonna do exactly whatever the **** I want
I’m gonna keep on doing it ’til I get to the top
‘Cause, you know
I guess I’m getting used to feeling like

I’m always on the back foot
Yeah, I’m always on the back foot, yeah
I’m always on the, woo
It’s like I’m always on the back foot, yeah
Oh, I’m always on the back foot
I’m always on the back foot
Yeah, I’m always on the back foot
Yeah, I’m always on the back foot, yeah
