The next round-Step into the ring

 I hear the bells ring
 "ding ding"
Go ahead and take a swing
it don't mean a thing
'cause I've learned how to stand my own ground
I'm in the middle of the ring
gloves off
ready for the next round.
Don't be fooled into thinking
you can knock me down
'cause you don't know about the strength I've found.
I've been around
seen life
through eyes that saw the hard way
learned how to live it my way
say what I mean, mean what I say.
I pull no punches
trust my intuition and my hunches
so it's o.k take a swing
it don't mean a thing
your opinion is just that to me, doesn't mean jack to me.
I may be small
but I'm packed full of power
once a shy bud now I'm a full blown flower
so go ahead step in the ring
I hear the bells ring 
"ding ding"
go ahead and take a swing
let's see what you bring!
