lyrics

I’m a big black dog pulling on his chain
Settle down kids or you’ll be next
Ain’t there somethin’ ya want to know right now
Sign of the times, treachery, crimes and debts
I done what I could, I stuck out the days.
Kick a dog in the teeth and see how fucking nice he stays.
Straw man, yes-man, poor mans hurcules
Don’t think you can come around and pull that shit on me

Cause I aint gunna stick around
To watch you bring a man down
Ain’t gunna be nice just for the sake of you. I were a better man, better man before I met you.

I been spat on, shat on, kicked and abused
Ground down, strung on, tricked and accused
Harry just laugh, harry just guess
Feint parry play you like chess
Maybe its my fault, maybe it’s a curse.
All you gunna do is make me worse.
No compassion, no mercy, no remorse and no friends
Let me show you now where all love ends

Cause I ain gunna stick around
To watch you bring a man down
Your mother never warned you didn’t she
Stay the fuck away from the likes of me

Sittin on the outside Just me and my mates
We gunna keep fuckin’ with ya kids just you wait.
You kids ain’t cool, you ain’t suave, you ain’t witty
Jeez your hair look nice, don’t you smell pretty
Dogs be vicious, cats malicious don’t be ignorant
We just animals, they no different.
That just how it goes, that’s how it be
Get clear, you deserve better than me

Cause I ain’t gunna stick around
To let you bring a man down
This ain't gunna be nice for you, but I won't let you cripple me
I’m'a keep swingin' till you set your dogs after me.
This ain't gunna be nice for you, but I won't let you cripple me
I’ll keep boxin' till you set your dogs after me.
