I never thought I’d live this way I lost my home when I lost my pay Now I live on the other side Loneliness gonna be my bride I hear her voice everywhere In the shadows and everywhere I asked the devil to save my soul He came back and he said 'no' I never thought I'd live this way I never thought I'd live this way Whoa I never thought I'd live this way My life's become one big cliche I steal my beer at the local market "Paper or plastic?", "Nah, don't wrap it" I never thought I'd live this way I curse the night and I sleep all day I've got a gun but I'd never use it Unless some fool decides to lose it I never thought I'd live this way I never thought I'd live this way Whoa

My black mama what's the matter with you? If it ain't satisfactory don't care what I do (2x) A brown skin woman makes a rabbit run to town But a jet black woman make a mule kick a stable down (2x) Ain't no heaven ain't no burning hell Where I go when I die ain't nobody can tell (2x) My black mama's face shine like the sun Lipstick and powder don't help her none (2x) Going down to the racetrack see my pony run He ain't the best in the world but he's a running son of a gun (2x)

We hustled out of Africa Headed up to Spain Made it with some natives there Man, we’ve never be the same Then we had to go So we went back East Couldn’t stand the weather But at least we found some peace Moving on That’s the nature of the beast We’re moving on It got a little crowded So we carried on To a South Pacific Island We looked sharp in our sarongs We’ve been all over Never settled down Never felt quite satisfied We like to get around Moving on That’s the nature of the beast We’re moving on We sailed across from England ‘Cause we wanted to be free Four centuries later We’ve got flat screen TVs And complicated sex lives And cheap designer clothes And purple Slurpees From stores that never close Moving on That’s the nature of the beast We’re moving on Standing in a parking lot On a California night Looking up at the stars Something don’t feel right They ain’t shining brightly Like they used to do I’m gonna buy a rocket ship And get an up close personal view Moving on That’s the nature of the beast I'm moving on Moving on That's the nature of the beast We're moving on
