"Simple Man"

 

I ain't nothin' but a simple man

They call me a redneck I reckon that I am

But there's things going on

That make me mad down to the core.

 

I have to work like a dog to make ends meet

There's crooked politicians and crime in the street

And I'm madder'n hell and I ain't gonna take it no more.

 

We tell our kids to just say no

Then some panty waist judge lets a drug dealer go

Slaps him on the wrist and then he turns him back out on the town.

 

Now if I had my way with people sellin' dope

I'd take a big tall tree and a short piece of rope

I'd hang 'em up high and let 'em swing 'til the sun goes down

 

Well, you know what's wrong with the world today

People done gone and put their Bible's away

They're living by the law of the jungle not the law of the land

The good book says it so I know it's the truth

An eye for and eye and a tooth for a tooth amen there brother

You better watch where you go and remember where you been

That's the way I see it I'm a Simple Man.

 

Now I'm the kinda man that'd not harm a mouse

But if I catch somebody breakin in my house

I've got twelve guage shotgun waiting on the other side

 

So don't go pushing me against my will

I don't want to have to fight you but I dern sure will

So if you don't want trouble then you'd better just pass me on by

 

As far as I'm concerned there ain't no excuse

For the raping and the killing and the child abuse

And I've got a way to put an end to all that mess

 

Just take them rascals out in the swamp

Put 'em on their knees and tie 'em to a stump

Let the rattlers and the bugs and the alligators do the rest

 

You know what's wrong with the world today

People done gone and put their Bible's away

They're living by the law of the jungle not the law of the land

The Good Book says it so I know it's the truth

An eye for and eye and a tooth for a tooth

You better watch where you go and remember where you been

That's the way I see it I'm a Simple Man
