We were ten years old, Suzie & me seen the ice cream truck down the street,
Her momma would throw some change our way and then she?d get some ice cold treats,
Then one day she gave another boy the treat that I thought was mine.
I may have hurt inside back then, but still I turned out just fine.

I took her best shot, but I believe, I believe I?m a be alright.
Life ain?t nothin? but ups and downs, but I believe I?m a be alright.
Some days it?s just takes days, and sometimes I take all night!
But when the dogs are done barkin? I believe I?m a be alright.

Sweet sixteen, Sue walking down the sidewalk, didn?t know me from a rock.
I was smitten by that kitten, and her sugar blue eyes and those honey-golden locks.
That smile she flashed in my direction would surely catch my eye,
But that smile was meant for someone else, there behind me stood another guy.

I can handle all them pot shots, now, I believe I?m a be alright.
After all them revelations, I believe I?m a be alright.
Some days it just take days, sometimes I still take all night!
But when the dogs are done barkin? I believe I?m a be alright.

?Bout ten years down the road in a roadhouse, déjà vu again?
Suzie walked through the doors, did a beeline my way, just like we was old friends.
This time ?round, I said the special words that both me and her could hear.
?Bout me getting my love from someone else and then gettin? back to my beer.

Now that I?ve survived the trial, I believe I?m a be alright.
What goes around still comes around, now I believe I?m a be alright.
I may be in love all day, and I can still make love tonight!
When the dogs are done barkin? and growling, I believe I?m a be alright.
I believe I?m a be alright.
I know I?m a be alright.
You can bet I?m a be alright.
I can say it once, I can say it twice,
I believe I?m a be alright.
