Living off the friends we made
Never ever getting paid
Kicking *** and paying dues
Lose our mind in self abuse

Loving ladies by the score
Waking up and wanting more
I hope my Mama understands
When I strike up the band

Well I spit out my anger as the sweat do fly
Fifteen years of paying dues just to get me by
Now the barkeeps would pay us by the crowds we bring
But those son-of-*****es never paid us one damn thing
And my poor Daddy, he just don't understand
