The Lyrics

I have an idiot neighbor who thinks that by acting beligerant and crazy, he'll get his way. This ode is for him and everyone like him.
Many is the time I've been real quiet
And many times I scream
Yes, and authority defy it
And always act extreme
Cause I think I'm right, I'm right
I'm just crazy as a jay
And you can expect to see
Me featured on "Cops"
Till they come put me away
Till they come put me away

I don't know a soul that don't upset me
I don't have a friend that I can trust
I have all these dreams they're out to get me
No day that I've not cussed
Oh, but I'm so right, I'm so right
And I make life hell for all
Still when I fall to the rage that rears its' head
I go and kick the wall
I can't help it I go and kick the wall

And I dreamed I was fightin'
I dreamed that I got them unexpectedly
Whipped out my three uzis
Killed all my enemies
And I dreamed I was flying
And high up above my plane would drop napalm
And a few nuclear bombs
On you and your stinkin' mom
And I dreamed they were dying

Oh, I sit in a car they call the patroller
I sit in a cell with this buffoon
I've been here before but I'll be out real fast
Can't hold an American Loon
Oh, and I'm so right, I'm so right
For the system often fails
And tomorrow I will be out there in your face
Smokin' cigs and on your tail
That's cause I always make my bail

Gonna give you 5s, Rick, because you've inspired me to finish a diatribe about a neighbor from hell. I guess everybody's got at least one.
