lyrics

Cut that jive
4 Weapons On 65
Doctor, please
I got the rockin’ boogie woogie disease
Cut that jive
4 Weapons On 65

Doc said, “Sorry bout
you caught the boogie woogie flu
between a minute and
sixty years to live

“Son, suggest you find
something better for your time.” But
I just don’t know what that is
I got the key to the lock
but I can’t find the gate
I got $50 on a middle weight
that can’t see straight

I got chains on my sneakers
Hell hound on my guitar
I been running for my life
Could’ve saved up for a car
I got vultures flying, trying to pull identity theft
How the hell am I supposed to keep a family fed?

It hurts to keep it going
and it hurts to make it end
If I should ever fall behind
just remember I said

Cut that jive
4 Weapons On 65
Doctor, please
I got the rockin’ boogie woogie disease
Cut that jive
4 Weapons On 65

Cut that jive
Cut that jive
Cut that jive
Cut that jive
