A Lot Like You

got no money
no way home
nobody cares and I'm all alone
I'm alot like you
Hell knows I'm alot like you
And I got nobody
no set plans

left waitin on no promised lands
I'm alot like you
don't you know
I'm alot like you
I keep my eyes wide open
so I don't get fooled

I'm listenin up
and gettin on over myself
cause I know
you know

we know

I'm alot like you

Everybody wants iced pink Champagne
To Dirty dance in your warm spring rains

Beluga caviar
Ya'll wanna party down hearty like a Superstar
and you're screamin
thank you
thank you
thank you
for the favor
might like the flavor
something to savor
with your party favors
on your elevators
with your player makers

now that I'm able
to sit at your table
and stomach your fable
I scream thank you
thank you
thank you
for the favor

And you got no money
no way home
nobody cares
and you're on your own

I'm alot like you
Heaven knows
I'm alot like you

And, you got no money
no set plans

left waitin on no promised lands
I'm alot like you

we all know I'm alot like you

Ya'll want a piece of my rock
A Sliver of my clock
A bite off my lollipop
The cream of my crop
The finest of my stock
with a cherry on top
be the fastest gun on the block
You want your tiny bloody sweaty tasty
little piece of the rock

Where's my piece
her piece
where's our piece
where's your piece
of the Rock
I'm alive
I'm alive I'm a lie
you're a live lie too
That must be how I got hooked up
and in with a lot
with a dirty li'l lot like you
You keep your eyes wide open
so you don't get fooled
you've been listening up and gettin over yourself
cause you know
I know
everbody know

I'm a lot like you
and thank you
thank you
thank you
for your favor

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
