Who do I meet when I’m on the street
 1
          I meet the heat who begins to beat  
 2
                 me like a rug          
 3
                 thinks I’m a thug dealing drugs
 4
                          take a plug  
 5
 
 
Hey, Hey Joe say it ain’t so
 6
      I don’t know
 7
           gotta go before you blow
 8
                   me away
 9
                   I gotta say
 10
                   not today
 11
                   no can pay
 12
 
 
Don’t wanna die
 13
       why would I
 14
            no I ain’t shy
 15
                 time to fly
 16
 
 
Just for kicks
 17
         I get my licks
 18
              No turnin’ tricks
 19
                  classy chicks
 20
         turn me on
 21
             I’m almost gone
 22
                   almost done
 23
                         let’s have some fun
 24
                               in the sun
 25
         on the beach
 26
                 this is a reach
 27
                         guess I’ll teach
 28
                                  now don’t you preach
 29
         about your rules
 30
                 I’m no fool
 31
                         think I’m cool
 32
                                 no time for school
 33
 
 
Dazed and confused
 34
            feeling used
 35
                  body’s abused
 36
                         I’m not amused
 37
             ‘bout havin’ to
 38
                      answer to you
 39
                            that won’t do
 40
                                    so get a clue
 41
 
 
I’m at a loss
 42
        who died ‘n made you boss
 43
                        listen up hoss
 44
                              you’ll pay the cost
 45
         with your blood
 46
                   it’ll be a flood
 47
         your name is mud cause’ I ain’t yo bud
 48
 
 
You’re bound to fall
 49
           when we brawl
 50
           you’ll learn to crawl
 51
 
 
Guess that’s all
 52
           been a bawl
