Some kind of shame
How people can’t seem to get along these days
Cross the hall
They bitch and moan ‘bout everything
Just cussin’ while they fussin’
Right in front they children’s face
I know it ain’t right
But what’s a neighbor s’posed ta say
Lord have mercy
Bless their hearts in 302
Some folks go through their whole damn lives
Without a clue of what ta do
It’s such a pity
That life can get so sticky
It’s such a damn disgrace
That folks can’t seem to get it straight
They can’t seem to get it straight

I don’t know how it ended up this way
(I don’t know I don’t know)
One of these days we gonna get it straight
(I know we will – I know we will)

Even in the grocery
I’m shocked just by the price of cheese
Not to mention
What it cost to buy a pound a meat
Them sale signs is lyin’
Ain’t no such thing as
Buy one get one free
They just need to put them prices
Back just like they ought ta be
It ain’t customary
Or a sign of courtesy
Charging your customers
For a g’ damn shopping fee
Now I’m stressin’
Lettin’ this shit get to me

One more thing
What about you and me
I know we sho ain’t exempt
We got our bit of misery
Are we gonna talk about it
Work it out or stay this way
An’ are we gonna listen
To what the other has to say
We about ta be history
Unless we stop to get it straight

I don’t know how it ended up this way
(I don’t know I don’t know)
One of these days we gonna get it straight
(I know we will – I know we will)
One of these days we gonna get it straight
