LyricsEdit

Man gets a paper for his head
But man gets no lift from what he's read
Man gets a busride for his fare
Man's brain is leaking out his hair

Man goes to 7/11, buys a box and buys a can
Rents a VHS cassette and takes it to his pad
Man sees his doors kicked in and finds his TV gone
So man just leaves his hat on

Day 2

Man gets a paper for the rain
'Cause man left his hat at home today
Man gets a busride for his fare
Man catches cold from baby sneezing in his hair

Man works pretty hard at his job
The boss doesn't pay for it when man coughs
So man takes hot shower for his chest
So he can work for money to pay the doctor to tell him "rest"

Man goes to 7/11, buys a bottle and buys some pills
But he can't find a blanket to protect him from the chills
Chills he feels deep inside when the heat is on full blast
He smokes one more cigarette but it's not one more, it's his last
It's his last

Man takes his trouble to his car
Man takes his car into the street
Man takes the street into the freeway
Man gets on the freeway
Man gets real confused
Man thinks his car is blessed
Man stops, gets out, and gets undressed
Man steps out in the center lane
Middle of the night in a gentle rain

A charter bus takes him out.

Well the curtain goes up and the curtain goes down
Telephone dials and way across town
Some siren screams, some rescue truck
No, the freak's gone down, don't bother getting up
No, the freak's gone down, don't bother getting up
No, the freak's gone down, don't bother getting up

Man, oh man
