Lyrics
I was born too late to play in the Rolling Stones
I don't know Jimmy Page, I never met Yoko Ono
Standing with a Strat, I'm rock and roll's b****** son
Go out, get drunk, get laid, have fun
I don't got a million dollars, don't drive a Cadillac
Gimme half a chance, 'cause I'm not dead yet
(Chorus)
I'm not dead yet - not dead yet
I'm a mad dog fighting with the wall against my back
You'd better get a bigger gun, I'm not dead yet

I been machine-gunned, hand-gunned, hijacked, left for dead
Divebombed, napalmed, nuclear warheaded
Dropped from a jet plane with no parachute
Shot by a firing squad and raped by a business suit
I'm dancing on a landmine, one leg left
But I can still crawl and I'm not dead yet
Chorus

Well, you're bigger, tougher, meaner, rougher
Dirtier and uglier and sneakier and trickier
You wanna shoot me with a gun, cut me with a knife
Take your bare hands and rip out my eyes
You kicked me in the b**** and bit me in the neck
Hit me again, 'cause I'm not dead yet

Chorus
Well there's a mugger in the alley, there's a sniper in the hall
There's a girl at the bar wants to get me by the b****
The hangman is hanging if I autograph the noose
And Lee Harvey Oswald's brother's on the loose
There's a Mafia hitman with a bullet for my back
Someday he's gonna get me, but I'm not dead yet

I'm not dead yet - not dead yet
I'm a wild card waiting in the middle of the deck
You'd better get a bigger gun, I'm not dead yet

Chorus
