Don't look at me in sympathy, I'm glad I'm this way for I feel good and I'm knocking on wood, as long as I can say you just watch me peg it. You can tell by the way I leg it that I'm Peg Leg Bates, the one legged dancing man. I mix like fantastic, but with hot gymnastics I'm Peg Leg Bates, the one legged dancing man.

"Life means, do the best that you can with what you have, with all your mind and heart. One can do anything in this world if one wants to do it badly enough." — Clayton "Peg Leg" Bates
