same old, same old

who’ll take the blame, yo

same old, same old

isn’t that lame

same old, same old

the name of the game though

same old same old

ain’t it a shame


little boy burnt in a bathtub

cuz his lazy lazy mama

wasn’t any any where

left little boy with a so-called

grownup who didn’t-couldn’t

find the time to care


little girl fast gotta grow up

cuz her crazy crazy mama

smokin’ crack

little girl gotta be the grownup

she will never

get her childhood back


little bro got his head on straight

till hard he think he gotta act

changed a head of knowledge

to a head of hate

now he gotta

always watch his back


little sister get in double-trouble

she’s too young to have a child

y’all better go and

burst her bubble

she ain’t quite done being wild


little man trying to make a name

don’t go to school, can’t behave

living large to fight,

to kill, to maim

digging himself an early grave


tiny baby born,

his whole life ahead

barely watched,

hardly changed, rarely fed

his teenaged mama thought

him better off dead

didn’t have a mama-thought

inside her petty little head

put him in a dumpster

instead of his bed

only a few days old

and now there’s a crib

crying for a child to hold


same old, same old

who’ll take the blame, yo

same old, same old

isn’t that lame

same old, same old

the name of the game though

same old same old

ain’t it a shame
