CHICO AND THE MAN Lyrics

by Rehab

Man, what time is it?
Chico and The Man
blah, blah, blah
Holy shit!
Chico and The Man
blah, blah, blah
I shouldn't a drank all that shit last night
Chico and The Man
blah, blah, blah
Aw
Another day, same couch
rib cushions my feet
pop tart and milk
great 'fridge'
got nothing to eat
love left me for money
she's a ho anyway
gonna sip my 12 and get drunk all day
I sit and get high, make cocktail dry
love is a lie, and I am alive
it seems boring, number rolling
so I'll just sit here, light a cig upon the stove
and crack a beer and watch
Chico and The Man
I got my pony watchin'
Chico and The Man
I'm gettin' high watchin'
Chico and The Man
the time fly watchin'
Chico and The Man
don't got no job, watchin'
Chico and The Man
gettin' high watchin'
Chico and The Man
I got my beer watchin'
Chico and The Man
the time fly watchin'
Chico and The Man
don't got no job
Wakin' up, bogart
I'm might be dope, but I'm not fly
might as well die
or maybe I'll actually take my lazy, shitty ass and walk outside
iller than the neighbor's ignorate, judgemental wife in disgust, naw
I think I'll smoke one more cigarette, and watch the Spanish Channel and lust
maybe I'll glue my eyes closed, maybe I'll write Shakspearean prose in the nude
in search, ending up searching for strange focuses, while swallowing Quaaludes
"Hey dude!"
"What?"
I'm fuckin bored
My brain chemicals will allow no joy
I'm sick of decoys
So I lay under the covers one more beautiful sunny day and watch my stolen cable
"Why don't you enjoy life for what it is?"
I'm not able
and hey, who'd I wake up next to?
I don't remember you
"but Brooks, I'm your true love from high school...gimme a hug baby"
"hey, hey, hey, fuck you"
but anyway, back to the numbing sound of quality programming
I think I'll drink liquor, curse God and a watch Knots Landing
black out the windows 'cause the Sun's screwing up my reception, damn
and once again I'm watchin'
Chico and The Man
I got my beer watchin'
Chico and The Man
I'm gettin' high watchin'
Chico and The Man
ain't got no job, watchin'
Chico and The Man
the time fly watchin'
Chico and The Man
the time fly watchin'
Chico and The Man
I got my brew watchin'
Chico and The Man
I'm gettin' high watchin'
Chico and The Man
ain't doin' nothin'
I lost my job, my car battery dead
and I'm pissin' on the seat, can't get a trade to the head
how in the hell did it get this bad?
gonna wipe my ass with the want-ads
and I'm eatin' stale Pop-tarts and bustin' farts
done turned unemployment into an art
tell the whole world to leave me alone
don't knock on my door, don't call my phone
I ain't pleasing you but motherfucker I'm grown
and I'm lazy as hell but I'm on my own
cigarettes, empty bottles and dirty socks
underwear with skidmarks and a broken clock
my cigs piled high where the roaches roam
on a two-week old plate of chicken bones
diggin' in my ass and I grab the remote
switch on the Magnava
and guess what's on?
What's that?
Chico and The Man
I got my pony, watchin'
Chico and The Man
I'm gettin' high, watchin'
Chico and The Man
got a Pop-tart, eatin', watchin'
Chico and The Man
ain't doin' nothin', watchin'
Chico and The Man
ain't got no job, watchin'
Chico and The Man
I need a life, watchin'
Chico and The Man
can't get no pussy, watchin'
Chico and The Man
what's happenin' to me, watchin'
Chico and The Man
ain't got no job, watchin'
Chico and The Man
I need some money, watchin'
Chico and The Man
I need a woman, watchin'
Chico and The Man
I'm on my ass, watchin'
Chico and The Man
this life's a bore, watchin'
Chico and The Man
I'm all alone, watchin'
Chico and The Man
countin' the roaches, watchin'
Chico and The Man
need to get some jobs, watchin'
Chico and The Man
ain't doin' nothin', watchin'
Chico and The Man
and you know
Chico and The Man
blah, blah, blah
I don't give a fuck man, you know
my mom says I ain't got no responsibilites you know and all
You know maybe she was a hippie
from the 60's
and she just gave me some ill gene
you know what I mean?
blah, blah, blah
Fuck it!

Y me gusta tanto cuando se pega pega
Y me guaya guaya
Y se pega pega
Cuando le sueltan el dembow
Dembow bow bow

So before leavin', yo it's a wise man I'm repeatin'
Two wrongs don't make a right, I believe in it makes a even
Paul Hardcastle
In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
