  • The message
  • (e.fletcher, s.robinson, c.chase, m.glover -
  • Sugarhill records 82)
  • Broken glass everywhere
  • People pissing on the stairs, you know they just
  • Dont care
  • I cant take the smell, I cant take the noise
  • Got no money to move out, I guess I got no choice
  • Rats in the front room, roaches in the back
  • Junkies in the alley with a baseball bat
  • I tried to get away, but I couldnt get far
  • Cause the man with the tow-truck repossessed my car
  • Chorus:
  • Dont push me, cause Im close to the edge
  • Im trying not to loose my head
  • Its like a jungle sometimes, it makes me wonder
  • How I keep from going under
  • Standing on the front stoop, hangin out the window
  • Watching all the cars go by, roaring as the breezes
  • Blow
  • Crazy lady, livin in a bag
  • Eating out of garbage piles, used to be a fag-hag
  • Search and test a tango, skips the life and then go
  • To search a prince to see the last of senses
  • Down at the peepshow, watching all the creeps
  • So she can tell the stories to the girls back home
  • She went to the city and got so so so ditty
  • She had to get a pimp, she couldnt make it on her
  • Own
  • Chorus:
  • Its like a jungle sometimes, it makes me wonder
  • How I keep from goin under
  • My brothers doing fast on my mothers t.v.
  • Says she watches to much, is just not healthy
  • All my children in the daytime, dallas at night
  • Cant even see the game or the sugar ray fight
  • Bill collectors they ring my phone
  • And scare my wife when Im not home
  • Got a bum education, double-digit inflation
  • Cant take the train to the job, theres a strike
  • At the station
  • Me on king kong standin on my back
  • Cant stop to turn around, broke my sacroiliac
  • Midrange, migraine, cancered membrane
  • Sometimes I think Im going insane, I swear I might
  • Hijack a plane!
  • Chorus:
  • My son said daddy I dont wanna go to school
  • Cause the teachers a jerk, he must think Im a
  • Fool
  • And all the kids smoke reefer, I think itd be
  • Cheaper
  • If I just got a job, learned to be a street sweeper
  • I dance to the beat, shuffle my feet
  • Wear a shirt and tie and run with the creeps
  • Cause its all about money, aint a damn thing
  • Funny
  • You got to have a con in this land of milk and
  • Honey
  • They push that girl in front of a train
  • Took her to a doctor, sowed the arm on again
  • Stabbed that man, right in his heart
  • Gave him a transplant before a brand new start
  • I cant walk through the park, cause its crazy
  • After the dark
  • Keep my hand on the gun, cause they got me on the
  • Run
  • I feel like an outlaw, broke my last fast jaw
  • Hear them say you want some more, livin on a
  • Seesaw
  • Chorus:
  • A child was born, with no state of mind
  • Blind to the ways of mankind
  • God is smiling on you but hes frowning too
  • Cause only God knows what you go through
  • You grow in the ghetto, living second rate
  • And your eyes will sing a song of deep hate
  • The places you play and where you stay
  • Looks like one great big alley way
  • Youll admire all the number book takers
  • Thugs, pimps, pushers and the big money makers
  • Driving big cars, spending twenties and tens
  • And you wanna grow up to be just like them
  • Smugglers, scrambles, burglars, gamblers
  • Pickpockets, peddlers and even pan-handlers
  • You say Im cool, Im no fool
  • But then you wind up dropping out of high school
  • Now youre unemployed, all null n void
  • Walking around like youre pretty boy floyd
  • Turned stickup kid, look what you done did
  • Got send up for a eight year bid
  • Now your man is took and youre a may tag
  • Spend the next two years as an undercover fag
  • Being used and abused, and served like hell
  • Till one day you was find hung dead in a cell
  • It was plain to see that your life was lost
  • You was cold and your body swung back and forth
  • But now your eyes sing the sad sad song
  • Of how you lived so fast and died so young
  • Chorus:
