Original video
Reversed:
I backed a winner in you, baby

Two to one you don't love me
Three to one you don't care
(You don't care)
But I worship you, baby
And I love the way you stare
(Way you stare)
And when you get down to basics, baby
Ain't a man alive can take that much pain

I backed a winner in you, baby
I'm gonna climb over that mountain
(Over that mountain)
I'm gonna jump right over that bridge
(Over that bridge)
I'm gonna rise just like the steeples, baby
And bring you right back to me

But the days went by
And I didn't hear a word
(Hear a word)
No, no, no, no
I must admit times were hard
(Times were hard)
And if you need me, baby
Don't be afraid to call

I, I backed a winner in you, baby
I'm gonna climb over that mountain
(Over that mountain)
I'm gonna jump right over that bridge
(Over that bridge)
I'm gonna rise like the devil to the slaughter
And bring you back to me, hey, hey

I'm gonna climb over that mountain
(Over that mountain)
I'm gonna jump right over that bridge
(Over that bridge)
And I'm gonna rise above the steeples, baby
And bring you right back to me
