Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Me, tough not really
 
When I was eighteen, I joined the United states air force
Off to basic training to San Antonio, Texas, for training
I was shy, took a lot for someone to get to me, of course
But somewhere along the way I grew more demanding
I stood up for the weaker guys who were not so strong
I was threatened by the bullies, they soon backed away
They learned not to mess with me or the ones not grown
Several of those who taunted those much smaller than they
Learned not to try to run over those who were of less stature
I never hurt anyone but I would not put up with their trash
I simply let them know I would fight them in their place sure
For some reason no ever called by bluff and I was not rash
But I was more than tired of big guys playing them so rough
It seemed as if I was always there when they needed my sway
I was tall, skinny and used to being treated by others as such
I learned when to stand up or if necessary just to walk away
And you know something, it is always better to just walk away
