Rotten World Blues lyrics

Hey, man
(What?)
Dig this

Well, I went walkin' out yesterday
A man was carryin' a sign that says
The world is gonna end tomorrow
Hey, buddy, got a nickel I can borrow?

This rotten world's gonna chew you up
Swallow you whole, and then spit you back out
The sooner you recognize this simple fact
Then this rotten world gives you what you lack

Ol' Miss Hedrick, she's gettin' down
You don't see her much walkin' 'round town
Well, you could say that she needs a little lovinLooking for a light with her head in the oven
This rotten world's gonna chew you up
Swallow you whole, and then spit you back out
The sooner you recognize this simple fact
Then this rotten world gives you what you lack
Let's rock

Miss Kovalov, she's lookin' good
Walkin' her ass through the neighborhood
She knows somethin' that you don't know
Somethin' she learned about a long time ago

This rotten world's gonna chew you up
Swallow you whole, and then spit you back out
The sooner you recognize this simple fact
Then this rotten world gives you what you lack
This rotten world's gonna chew you up
Swallow you whole, and then spit you back out
