The Lyrics

He'll only ask you for cash
For a meal that he won't buy
It's nothing new
I've seen his kind before
Asking and asking
He's waiting for you a sucker who gives to the poor

So many have gave you see
That he thinks he can get it for free
And after a while, he thinks that he could never go too far
What does it matter?
Since nobody knows how much he spent at the bar

Uh-oh, here he comes watch him how he hits you up
Uh-oh, here he comes he's a panhandler
Uh-oh, here he comes watch him how he hits you up
Uh-oh, here he comes he's a panhandler

I wouldn't if I were you
I know what he will do
He's a whino man, he will blow it at the liquor store
Liquid libation
The duty is there but he's lost this war before

Uh-oh, here he comes watch him how he hits you up
Uh-oh, here he comes he's a panhandler
Uh-oh, here he comes watch him how he hits you up
Uh-oh, here he comes he's a panhandler

(tough break)

Woah,
Uh-oh, here he comes, here he comes watch him how he hits you up
Uh-oh, here he comes watch him he's a panhandler
Uh-oh, here he comes he's a panhandler look how he hits you up
Uh-oh, here he comes, here he comes he's a panhandler
Uh-oh, here he comes watch him, he'll only ask you for cash
Uh-oh, here he comes, here he comes he's a panhandler
Uh-oh, here he comes he's a panhandler and after a while, woo
Uh-oh, here he comes, here he comes, Watch him now, Watch him now
Uh-oh, here he comes, oh, watch him, watch him, watch him, watch him
Uh-oh, here he comes, yeah, yeah, he's a panhandler
Uh-oh, here he comes he's a panhandler, he's waiting for you
Uh-oh, here he comes he's a panhandler
