The Lyrics

A parody (this is actually 75, not Samurai), about Denver, a place I work and I nearly live in. In the same frustration and anger as the original song, found here. Yes.....I am frustrated with Downtown Denver in some ways, but I won't deny it's a nice place. This parody can be pretty much sung to any downtown area.
Smog since construction time
You're forced to live up a mile high
Not once has anyone never seen
Drunks that bum you for change on the street
People are harsh, people are stoned
But to them this place is home sweet home

Downtown Denver! Downtown Denver!
Housing creeps and sports fans of the land
And to the local punk rock band

Catch a cab! Catch a bus!
Bikes work, why not try them sometime?!
Through the streets, you're late for work
And yet your boss is such a damn jerk
I have no faith in this dry-dirt town
Wonder why I even had to ride on down

Downtown Denver! Downtown Denver!
Downtown Denver! Downtown Denver!
Life here gets crazy!

John Elway, Todd Helton, athletes in Mile High
Rock-October, Hope for the World Series
Get drunk, f*ck me up, rob me of my money for booze
Drug abuse, needle-use, working just to get high
Place almost like hell, waiting to freeze over
In this place I really don't want to f*cking die!

Why do I have to bus on down to this old hell-hole
Where Summer's, hot and winter's below zero

Pouring rain, and lightning strikes
Always work minimum wage
What if there is a hell, would you think that it's the same?
Draining your life as you play your damn game
Not on my watch, can't deny what I see
I won't let this be destiny

I hate everything in this place
I need it to win life's race
No cutting corners, hire foreigners
Me in a town that seems out of place

Don't ask me if I f*cking have a spare cigarette
My money, I have I need to bus on home
I'll never, be stupid to live in Downtown Denver

I don't like this f*cking place
Won't run in the Colfax race
This place does not have God's grace
Get the hell out of my face
I run off, and you give chase
Disappear, each day I pray
With my life I've little say
Wanna leave without a trace!
Okay I'm not that angry with Denver, but I am frustrated. I really don't like bussing home at midnight...but yeah some of the stuff, you've read is based on real stuff I've seen. Homeless man outside Coors field each night holding a sign that reads, "Why lie? I need a beer. (Will work for weed)" I mean come on.....after seeing him there each night I've been tempted just to shout him out. I dunno. People are weird sometimes.
