Free Willis
Lyrics: Bruce Willis, John Popper
Music: John Popper, Brendan Hill, Chan Kinchla, Tad Kinchla, Ben Wilson

No, I think we got it
(laughter)

You got a '68 Chevy in the middle of a dirt pile
You see it come back because it's gonna be here for a while

Your mama needs some money too
So does her niece
Your cousin

You think you'd be open to sitting down with me and talking about it?
Would you like to sit down and talk about it?
A man does not like to be held down

Bubble!
And there's a guy right next to me, and he's all stressed out and texting
And something's wrong with him
And he's got a problem, and he's gotta do his job, okay?
And his wife's nagging him, because, you know
She can't get the coat this month
And they're going away this month, so why can't she have her coat?

Man down, they said
Got a man down
Man down

Please know that I am distraught
Over the conversations we have had these last few nights
I love you
I love my job
Always wanna give it back to you
And make a difference
And not hold you down
Why would you say that?

You think you'd be open to sitting down with me and talking about it?
Would you like to sit down and talk about it?
A man does not like to be held down

No criticizing
We don't want you to criticize

Brings out the dog in me
It brings out the dog in me

Father, we beseech thee
If you're out there, please listen

Now, come on, help me
Help a man when he's down

Please, can you do me a
Can you...can you help me?
Can you do me a kindness?
Could you do me a kindness?

The following information has been brought to you by the following companies

Regarding the things I said
While I was in the car with you
And I was on the way to work
And you know I was upset, and still

Hold my cell phone
It's a BlackBerry, hold it
My second BlackBerry is ringing
Tell 'em I'm...just ask 'em to hang on for a minute
I'd love to talk to you right now
But I'm late for a meeting
And...it's Thursday
