The Lyrics

I'm tired of people walking over me
Saying i'm worthless
Just cause i'm homeless
Or is it because i smell like pee
You think that your better
Cause you can afford shoes

(Have no place to call my home/
Have no place left to go)
Every can that i shake is
my only sake for food
(Have no place to call my home/
No where else to go)

I've become a bum
I'll sleep anywhere
In a cardboard box
On a set of stairs
Though i smell like piss
All i want from you
Is any spare change
So i can buy more booze

People say that "your bothering me"
I might be slightly
But there beside my poll
Cause everytime that i get whiskey
I'll wake up in town somewhere new



And i know
That i'm a big loser too
But i know
You'll feel sorry for me
And end up buying me more booze

Not bad at all, apart from the after-aroma. Spare fives? Sorry, mate, I've only got fours.

What harsh scores!! I thought this was very well thought-out with great pacing. I work on the south side of Chicago and I definitely found the surrealistic humor. All 5's!!
