Life On The Nickel Lyrics

Yet again I'm hustling, hustling, hustling
Yet again I'm hustling, hustling, hustling
Yet again I'm hustling, hustling, hustling
But I can't seem to catch a dime
Take a little hit and I lose the time
I took the man and his horse
And ran before he looked up
I said the light's gonna change
But I'm calm and feeling warm
Now I'm sticking out my hands
And feeling weightless again
You got to push, got to shove
Got to eat before they eat me
Got the crown and the cup
Got to write to my family
Say, "I'm calm and feeling warm"
Not quite there but I'm close
And it's a world of a difference

Yet again I'm hustling, hustling, hustling
Yet again I'm hustling, hustling, hustling
Yet again I'm hustling, hustling, hustling

But I can't seem to catch a dime
Take a little hit and I lose the time
Got the worst all behind me
Yeah, they'll never be able to find me
I'm the king of the city
I'm a roach and they're all primates
This is meal time
Real life
I'm not gonna fight
No, I'm not gonna start a war
I've been right, I've been wrong
My smokes have come and gone
I've been crazy, been fed
Enough to not wind up dead
And I'm lonely
My eyes have been closed to the world
'Cause the world's got nothing for me

Yet again I'm hustling, hustling, hustling
Yet again I'm hustling, hustling, hustling
Yet again I'm hustling, hustling, hustling
But I can't seem to catch a dime
Take a little hit and I lose the time
Yet again I'm hustling, hustling, hustling
Yet again I'm hustling, hustling, hustling
Yet again I'm hustling, hustling, hustling
But I can't seem to catch a dime
Take a little hit and I lose the time
Yet again I'm hustling, hustling, hustling
Yet again I'm hustling, hustling, hustling
Yet again I'm hustling, hustling, hustling
