The Lyrics

They're everywhere now...
They're in sight all day and night
The filthy homeless type
Signs in full view
Near freeways, lots, or stores
Waiting and begging
Oh, they're counting on you
To shell out some coin or more

Everyday the same routine
Don't wanna work
Just get stuff for free
Sometimes with a child
Who's to blame
For their social welfare?
Money's the matter
But for cigs, booze, or drugs
Some of them go too far

(Chorus)
(Oh-no, here they come)
Watch out folks
They'll hit you up
(Oh-oh, here they come)
They're panhandlers
(Oh-no, here they come)
Watch out folks
Some are real f-cked up
(Oh-no, here they come)
They're panhandlers

I wouldn't if I were you
Give more than a buck or two
The deadbeat clan
Are not dumb, some are quite smart
Some are great actors
Asking what you can spare
But make several thousand a month!!!

(Chorus)

[Don't be taken for a fool]

Ooooooooh
(Oh-no, here they come)
Here they come
Watch out folks
They'll hit you up
(So slow, here they come)
(Watch out) they're panhandlers
(Oh-no, here they come)
(They're panhandlers)
Some are messed up, nuts
(Oh-no, here they come)
Here they come, they're panhandlers
(Oh-no, here they come)
(Hands out)
They're in sight day and night, hot-cold
(Oh-no, here they come)
Here they come
They're panhandlers
(Oh-no, here they come)
(They're panhandlers)
Many toothless smiles
(Oh-no, here they come)
Here they come
Watch out folks, watch those blokes
(Oh-no, here they come)
With hands out, hands out
Some plead, some shout
(Oh-no, here they come)
(Yeah, yeah) they're panhandlers
(Oh-no, here they come)
(They're panhandlers)
Waiting and begging
(Oh-no, here they come)
Flocks of panhandlers...
Note: not against the homeless, just the aggressive scammer types

there's actually this lady that works/used to work the Walmart parking lot in my area several times she'd come up asking for money and always give this story about her son being in the hospital every time without fail she'd say "I'm begging! you can call the hospital if you want!" never called her bluff but she never got my money either! luckily she has either been caught in her scam or I've been fortunate enough to make trips to Walmart while she isn't there as I haven't seen her in a while! 5's

In California, we have a lot of fake vets from Vietnam to Desert Storm. This one black guy in a wheelchair by the freeway got money from me and one day I see him just jump out of the chair and run for a $10 bill out of a car window. Others do the driving in the parking lot scam. Was hit up in the Walmart lot a few times, but an hour later when I left she was still there driving around with kids doing the same sh-t asking for gas money, food, citing different locations she had to get to. I love it when squeaky clean dudes wearing $150 shoes, sportswear, and talking on an iPhone ask me for bus fare!!!! Hard to believe that still can work on some fools!
