Billy Bragg - Meanest Man Lyrics

  • If the folks next door to me wasnt so good
  • Id do all the mean things anybody could
  • Id drink and Id gamble and Id louse around
  • Id be the meanest man in this whole town
  • If I hadnt seen the light in that old ladys eyes
  • Id try to be a man that you would hate and despise
  • Id rave and Id rant and Id scream and yell
  • And Id chase all my neighbours from here to hell
  • If I hadnt heard those kids laugh playing games
  • Id have nervous fits and Id go insane
  • Id turpentine cats and tin can dogs
  • And Id smother people to death inside of holler logs
  • If the people around me wasnt so nice
  • Id freeze my heart into a cake of ice
  • Id steal money from soldiers and working folks too
  • Id lend you a dollar and take back two
  • If my wife didnt kiss me the way she does
  • Id carry four or five daggers and three or four guns
  • Id shoot craps and ramble and hang out late
  • And Id steal baby buggies and cadillac eights
  • If my friends didnt write me those letters I get
  • Id get to be a dictator and be the worse one yet
  • Id be the only smart bird and youd all be fools
  • All Id send you all away to war and Id set home and rule
  • If it wasnt for them songs I hear all of you sing
  • Id put a crown on my dome and Id say Im your king
  • Id kidnap some and blackmail others
  • Id peddle black market stuff and rob sisters and brothers
  • If it wasnt for your talking I hear along the street
  • Id be the oneriest man that you ever did meet
  • Id preach the gospel of hate and Id drink your blood
  • But I cant be this bad because my folks are too good
  • Words: woody guthrie (1945) - music: billy bragg (1997)
