When the whip comes down

Yeah Mama and Papa told me see I was crazy to stay
I was gay in New York, just a fag in L.A.
And I took the money and I took the plane
No matter where I go they treat me the same

When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down

Yeah, some call me garbage when I'm sweeping up the street
And I never roll and I never cheat
And I'm filling the need, I'm filling the hole
My mama's so glad I ain't on the dole

When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down

Yeah I'm coming from fifty-third street and they spit on my face
Well I'm learning the ropes and I'm learning the trade
Well the east river truckers are churning with trash
I got so much money I'll spend it too fast

When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down

When the shit hits the fan
I'm sittin' on a can
When the whip comes down
When the shit comes down

When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down
Yeah check it out there

When the whip comes down
Yeah when the whip comes down
Yeah when the whip comes down
When the whip comes down

Yeah then check it out, check it out, check it out
Check it out, check it out
Check it out, check it out, check it out, check it out
Check it out, check it out, check it out
Check it out, check it out, check it out
