The Lyrics

You tell me you have had to sacrifice
Against your wishes, that's no doubt
And then you had to duck to make more room
Believe me, I know what that's about
Bending over, stooping down and then
They walk all over, up and down
You complain and yell and scream alot
They never notice that you're around!
Well I say,

What kind of audience
Will listen to your plea?
Especially when it's all too true
You ain't never had to bend like me
Oh, no, no

You feel like Gumby, when
They twist you horribly
But no matter how they turn you 'bout
You ain't never to bend like me

Oh well, I'd like to say I understand
You're confused
To say the least
I've got no doubt
You've figured out,
That I'm made out of yeast!

You've got to realize
It's not insensitivity
'Cause I'm aware, that life's not fair,
You ain't never had to bend like me

Can you bend like this?
Can you bend like that?
Can you bend so far you fit inside your hat?
Can you bend so much
You can see your rear?
Can you bend and, Heaven's to Betsy! What a stretch!
Your leg is sticking in your ear?

So whatcha think now that I've clued you in?
You've got it easy, I really must say
You got to see the bigger picture, and
Stop complaining your whole life away
You've got potential to do greater things
And you've got less standing in your way
You got to stop looking over your shoulder now
You better listen to what this pretzel say and hey!

When will you realize, things are better as they be?
Still need a hint? Just be content,
You ain't never had to bend, never had to bend
You ain't never had to bend, never had to bend
You ain't never had to bend like me
You ain't never had to bend like me, hah!

Sounds like the guy on Steve Harvey's show on Sunday night. Did you see it?
