Down & Out

Work be good
& Work be bad
You give it all you got
Cause you gave it all you had

Time sheets expected
As if you’ve neglected
But you paid you dues
And were your shoes

Work faster
Work harder
Satisfications such a blast
When you keeping up with the Jones’s
And your keeping up with the Browns’s
You better keep pushing for your early retirement

What is wrong with the world today?
And why did ethics walk away?
Why is it hard just being just
And even harder just to trust

& Why do I feel so down and out?
Why do I feel so down and out?
Why do I feel so down
Why do I feel so down and out?

Keep it up now Rudey
Dont you ever feel down
Its just a chemical imbalance that is making your frown

No money for play cause its all in the rent
No girl to come over
No life
Not a cent

Seems a permanent experiment
With this rudies emotions and his hell bent
And paranoid
So lock the door
Cause they will come into my house
And take what I work for

What is wrong with the world today?
And why did ethics walk away?
Why is it hard just being just
And even harder just to trust

& Why do I feel so down and out?
Why do I feel so down and out?
Why do I feel so down
Why do I feel so down and out?

I think I need a five year holiday
Sipping mageritas in sunny Santa Fe
Under the sun and it wont take long
To realise that this lifestyle aint so wrong
But wait a second I need some cash
To chase that dragon
That piece of ass
Why do I feel so blue?

Why do I feel so down and out?
Why do I feel so down and out?
