Shit Happens: The Showdown.

If your woman steps out with another man
And she runs off with him to Japan
And the IRS says they want to chat
And you can't explain why you claimed your cat
And Ma Bell sends you a whopping bill
With eighteen phone calls to Brazil
And you borrowed money from the mob
And yesterday you lost your job...

-Kurtis Blow, "The Breaks"

Bill collector called today
IRS is on my case
My boss says i should comb my hair
My father thinks that i'm nowhere...
Landlord doesn't like my dog
My eyes are burning from the smog
The neighbors say i jam too loud
America thinks it should be proud...
Some guy just pinched my ass
Drunken bums ain't go no class
The club says i won't get paid
It's been months since i've been laid

-L7, "Shove"
