lyrics

I got a friend in Houston.
I humor him a bit.
He say “Trump said this and Trump said that”
til I got to beg him to quit.
I say “You live in Texas, man.”
I say “Don’t you know they like that shit?”
I say “Don’t you know they ain’t never gonna change?
“Why don’t you leave if you’re tired of it?”

They keep their thoughts very simple.
They don’t allow nothin new.
They only look out for their own kind.
and if you were smart that’s what you would do.

Chorus
You know what your problem is?
You like everybody.
You know what your problem is?
You think everybody else does too.
You know what your problem is?
You think we’re all equal.
What in the world is the world gonna do with you?

I got a friend in Detroit.
Now she lives in Flint.
She be talkin bout “Immigrants this and immigrants that”
til I got tot beg her to quit.
I say “Girl, don’t you got your own problems?”
“Girl, don’t you ever think?
I say, “They ain’t gonna do nothing but take the few jobs you got.
“Must be something in the water you drink”

She say, “They fleein death and destruction.”
She say, “It could be me or you.”
I say “But it ain’t me or you.” Yeah, I said it.
I say “I don’t care what they goin though.”

Chorus

I had a dream when I was a kid,
saw the beginning and the end.
I woke up and I started to cry.
I haven’t cried since then.

My hippie parents got me a doctor
Doc say “Boy, what’s wrong with you?”
Five months later they stopped wasting their money
They got me a job at a petting zoo

An old man taught me how to make money
Then disappeared with all of mine
He said most people fear the truth
so you can sell ‘em any lie.

Made some friends in rehab
They believe in bright shining days
They see all y’all folks coming together
I don’t see it all that way

Chorus
