VERSE
This a tale of Junior Seau
He was a player in the NFL
Tough as nails, he showed them how
Impassioned player, he gave'em hell
But retirement was not to be
chronic traumatic encephalopathy
It made him angry, crazy and sad
Multiple concussions, who knew they were bad?

PRECHORUS
It matters if you win or lose
And if you play the game
It all depends on which you choose
the body or the brain
The limits are within you
Your career has a length of time
The battle on the field begins to
Pit your heart against your mind

CHORUS
Shake it off, walk it off,
get back in the game
Nobody ever thought
he'd go down in flames
Work it out, there is no doubt
at then of the day,
he'll alright, it all checked out,
he's ok to play!
Bang it up, won't hang it up,
the job must get done,
feeling shaken up, but
he's second to none
Tough it out, he's strong throughout
the crowd is shouting hooray!
he'll alright, it all checked out,
he's ok to play!

VERSE
Eric Lindros was the MVP
A Canadian in the NHL
Now's an advocate for CTE
A depressive suicidal hell
Argentina's Javier Mascherano
Collided head-on, collapsed in a fall
2 minutes later they said he was ready to go
FIFA's consussion protocol?

PRECHORUS
It matters if you win or lose
And if you play the game
It all depends on which you choose
the body or the brain
The limits are within you
Your career has a length of time
The battle on the field begins to
Pit your heart against your mind

1/2 CHORUS
Shake it off, walk it off,
get back in the game
Nobody ever thought
he'd go down in flames
Work it out, there is no doubt
at then of the day,
he'll alright, it all checked out,
he's ok to play!

OUTRO
Only now are they beginning to think
a subsitute system is needed
So many player were pushed to the brink
no medical warnings were heeded....

CHORUS
Shake it off, walk it off,
get back in the game
Nobody ever thought
he'd go down in flames
Work it out, there is no doubt
at then of the day,
he'll alright, it all checked out,
he's ok to play!
Bang it up, won't hang it up,
the job must get done,
feeling shaken up, but
he's second to none
Tough it out, he's strong throughout
the crowd is shouting hooray!
he'll alright, it all checked out,
he's ok to play!
