    Everlast - What It's Like

    We've all seen a man at the liquor store beggin' for your change

    The hair on his face is dirty, dread-locked, and full of main

    He asks a man for what he could spare, with shame in his eyes

    "Get a job you f*cking slob," is all he replies

    God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in his shoes

    'Cause then you really might know what it's like to sing the blues

    Then you really might know what it's like...

    Then you really might know what it's like...

    Then you really might know what it's like...

    Then you really might know what it's like...

    Mary got pregnant from a kid named Tom that said he was in love

    He said, "Don't worry about a thing, baby doll

    I'm the man you've been dreaming of."

    But 3 months later he say he won't date her or return her calls

    And she swear, "God damn, if I find that man I'm cuttin' off his balls!"

    And then she heads for the clinic and

    she gets some static walking through the door

    They call her a killer, and they call her a sinner

    and they call her a whore

    God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in her shoes

    'Cause then you really might know what it's like to have to choose

    Then you really might know what it's like...

    Then you really might know what it's like...

    Then you really might know what it's like...

    Then you really might know what it's like...

    I've seen a rich man beg

    I've seen a good man sin

    I've seen a tough man cry

    I've seen a loser win

    And a sad man grin

    I heard an honest man lie

    I've seen the good side of bad

    And the downside of up

    And everything between

    I licked the silver spoon

    Drank from the golden cup

    And smoked the finest green

    I stroked the fattest dimes at least a couple of times

    before i broke their heart

    You know where it ends, yo, it usually depends on where you start

    I knew this kid named Max

    who used to get fat stacks out on the corner with drugs

    He liked to hang out late

    he liked to get sh*t-faced and keep the pace with thugs

    Until late one night there was a big old fight and Max lost his head

    He pulled out his chrome .45, talked some sh*t, and wound up dead

    Now his wife and his kids are caught in the midst of all of this pain

    You know it comes that way

    at least that's what they say when you play the game

    God forbid you ever had to wake up to hear the news

    'Cause then you really might know what it's like to have to lose

    Then you really might know what it's like...

    Then you really might know what it's like...

    Then you really might know what it's like...to have to lose

    hadnt heard this song in 4ever and ironically heard it tonight on the way home from college. happy listening.
