Everlast: What It´s Like

WHAT IT’S LIKE
/Everlast/

We've all seen the man at the liquor store
Beggin' for your change
The hair on his face is dirty
Dreadlocked and full of mange
He ask the man for what he could spare
With shame in his eyes
Get a job you fuckin' slob's all he replied

[Chorus:]
God forbid you ever
Had to walk a mile in his shoes
'Cause then you really might know
What it's like to sing the blues
Then you really might know what it's like [4x]

Mary got pregnant from a kid named Tom
Who said he was in love
He said don't worry about a thing baby doll
I'm the man you've been dreamin' of
But three months later he said
He won't date her or return her call
And she sweared god damn if I find that man
I'm cuttin' off his balls
And then she heads for the clinic
And she gets some static walkin' through the doors
They call her a killer
And they call her a sinner and they call her a whore

God forbid you ever
Had to walk a mile in her shoes
'Cause then you really might know
What it's like to have to choose
Then you really might know what it's like [4x]

I've seen a rich man beg
I've seen a good man sin
I've seen a tough man cry
I've seen a loser win
And a sad man grin
I heard an honest man lie
I've seen the good side of bad
And the down side of up
And everything between
I licked the silver spoon
Drank from the golden cup
Smoked the finest green
I stroked daddies dimes at least a couple of times
Before I broke their heart
You know where it ends
Yo, it usually depends on where you start

God forbid you ever
Had to wake up to hear the news
'Cause then you really might know
What it's like to have to lose
Then you really might know what it's like [4x]
To have to lose...
