[Verse 1] I know how it feels to expect to get a fair shake But they won't let you forget That you're the underdog and you've got to be twice as good Even if you're never right They get uptight when you get too bright Or you might start thinking too much I know how it feels when you know you're real But every other time You get up and get a raw deal Say I'm the underdog I say I'm the underdog Say I'm the underdog I'm the underdog [Verse 2] I know how it feels to get demoted When it comes time you got promoted But you might be movin' up too fast If you ever love somebody of a different set I bet the set didn't let you forget That it just don't go like that I know how it feels For people to stop, turn around and stare Signify a little bit and low rate, low rate me I don't mind I'm the underdog No I can handle it I'm the underdog I'm the underdog, yeah Underdog [Verse 3] I know how it feels to be played upon See you at the party But you're really, you're really all alone They just underestimate me I know how it feels when you're feelin' down And you wanna come up but you realize You're in the wrong part of town I know how it feels to have to go along With people you don't even know Simply because there happens to be A whole lot more of them Say I'm the underdog I'm the underdog I don't mind cause I can handle it Underdog, It's gonna be alright I'm the underdog
