The Lyrics

For 14 years Afroman had his coffers full of royalties from his one hit wonder. But then he got broke. This is the story of how he came back from the brink.
I was gonna pay my maid,
And then get high,
I was gonna invest in some trade,
And then get high,
But I'm all out of money and I know why,
Because I've not, been relevant, for fourteen years,
Ladadadadadada;

I've gotta think of a plan,
Because I'm broke,
I've gotta do whatever I can,
Because I'm broke,
Gotta make my millions back and I know why,
Because I'm broke, because I'm broke, because I'm broke,
Ladadadadadada;

I've gotta record a new hit,
Because I'm broke,
I've gotta go into the studio,
Because I'm broke,
But I can't get off my couch and I know why,
Because I'm fat, because I'm fat, because I'm fat,
Ladadadadadada;

Now I've gotta change my lyrics,
Because I'm broke,
Align with a popular cause,
Because I'm broke,
I've gotta appeal to liberals and I know why,
Because I'm broke, because I'm broke, because I'm broke,
Ladadadadadada;

I'm gonna stay on my couch,
Because I'm fat,
Gonna get pushed all about,
Because I'm fat,
And talk about legalization and I know why,
Because I'm broke, because I'm broke, because I'm broke,
Ladadadadadada;

I'll put a video on Youtube,
Because I'm broke,
It's got one million views,
But I'm still broke,
I'm not even getting my royalties and I know why,
Because I'm a joke, because I'm a joke, because I'm a joke,
Ladadadadadada;

I messed up my entire comeback,
And I'm still broke,
I sold out my beliefs,
Because I was broke,
I'm just gonna sit in the gutter and do what's best,
I'm just gonna toke, I'm just gonna toke, I'm just gonna toke,
Ladadadadadada,
Shoboodoobydowah Skibbidybebopdoowah,
S-O-L-D O, and sometimes U & T!!!!!
