lyrics

must be nice
living it up in California
no worries is what some say
but i get woried everyday
this aint the place for me
cant get no reciprocity
some people plan to stay in bed
but i'll be stepping out instead

when i try to get real high
they bring me down
when i try to stand up tall
they shrink me down
when i try to push them off
oh they pull me down down down

when i get outta babylon
i'm never going back

when i try to get real high
they bring me down
when i try to stand up tall
they shrink me down
when i try to push them off
oh they pull me down

it's not enough for me to live a life of luxry
no way
sorry sir but i can't compramise for you today
i hope you find a better way
but there's no time for me to stay

when i try to get real high
they bring me down
when i try to stand up tall
they shrink me down
when i try to push them off
they pull me down down down
