Align:    
  • Intro:
  • I don't want a lot I want just enough
  • So why has it got to be so damn TOUGH
  • Livin' on the uptown side of jive
  • Hustlin' a buck to stay alive
  • Lookin' for a ten and they give your five
  • Well it's tough
  • You talk to the boss the boss is gruff
  • You ask for a raise and they call your bluff
  • You may get some but it's never enough
  • Because it's tough
  • STRONG:Like a magnum force
  • ROUGH:Like a new divorce
  • MEAN:Like a three-time loser
  • BAD:Like an L.A. cruiser
  • DOWN:Like a limousine
  • BLIND:Like a submarine
  • HARD:Like cold concrete
  • TOUGH:That's the rhythm of the beat
  • You hit the street and you look for work
  • You don't want to be some welfare jerk
  • But I wonder how you get to be Captain Kirk
  • It's tough
  • Now Kirk has a ship called the Enterprise
  • He cuts the aliens down to size
  • But I wonder what he'd do with the uptown guys
  • They're tough
  • TOUGH:
  • Try to get some cash
  • When you're looking for a raise and they give you trash
  • ROUGH:
  • When you got it like that
  • And your woman's running 'round with a baseball bat
  • HARD:
  • Try to play it cool when the girl's all know you're an out of work fool
  • TOUGH:
  • How it seems to be,wish I had somebody lookin' out for me
  • Try to find a lover if you dare
  • Even if you do she just won't care
  • Well no one ever said that that life is fair
  • Because it's tough
  • Saw a fine young lady the other day
  • I started my rap,I had a lot to say
  • But she said she was goin' with a C.P.A.
  • Now it's tough
  • STRONG:Like a superhero
  • ROUGH:Like a bank book zero
  • MEAN:Like the Oakland Raiders
  • BAD:Like the Caped Crusaders
  • DOWN:Like a homerun ball
  • BLIND:Like an umpire's call
  • HARD:Like a cruel deceit
  • TOUGH:That's the rhythm of the beat
  • You worked all year to buy a brand new car
  • A Coupe de Ville or a Jaguar
  • But you didn't make enough for a good cigar
  • Because it's tough
  • So you went to the bank to try to get a loan
  • But the guy behind the desk had a heart os stone
  • He said "You don't need a car,use the telephone!"
  • It's tough
  • TOUGH:
  • It's a way of life,lost your job
  • Your money,but not your wife
  • ROUGH:
  • Gettin' in the black,Uncle Sam's in your pocket
  • And your woman's on your back
  • HARD:
  • That's the deal,had to get a loan just to buy a meal
  • TOUGH:
  • That's how it goes,when it's gettin' better,nobody knows
  • STRONG:Like Chocolate Thunder
  • ROUGH:Like Stevie Wonder
  • MEAN:Like Brucie The Shark
  • BAD:Like the Raider's Ark
  • DOWN:Like Sugar's Glove
  • BLIND:Like a man in love
  • HARD:Like a big defeat
  • TOUGH:That's the rhythm of the beat
  • TOUGH:That's the word,unemployment is all I heard
  • ROUGH:When you start your day,watch the finance man tow your car away
  • HARD:To hold a job when you've been replaced by a little blue knob
  • TOUGH:Like a dollar steak,ain't someone ever gonna give me a break
  • Tough.
