The Lyrics

I was walking to my place:
An apartment in the hood.
And since I was too tired to make it,
I was mugged: it wasn't good.

I walked in and saw my landlord.
She was there to take a stand.
She wanted me to give her some cash.
Gave a grin, then smiled again.

It shouldn't be so complicated
Just stop the gamblin'
oh no but I can't

Yeah, I can't pay the rent.
I'm so scared that I'll never
sleep in here forever.
The break-ins weren't bad,
and there weren't many roaches.
Help me with the rent.

And I might not sleep 'cause I'm worried
That I'll be homeless again.
So in order to meet my needs
I got a job, didn't pay much

But the next day I was fired for
Indecent exposure
And because of that


Makin' ends meat,
But it's not enough.
Have all my coin pieces,
I'm saving them
Keep saving money 'til I can sleep there again.

It shouldn't be so complicated
Just stop the drinkin'
oh no but I can't
