"When The Whip Comes Down" lyrics

When The Whip Comes Down

Yeah, mama and papa told me
I was crazy to stay
I was gay in New York
Which is a fag in LA
So I saved my money
And I took a plane
Wherever I go
They just treat me the same

When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down

Yeah, I'm going down Fifty-third Street
And they're spitting in my face
I'm learning the ropes
Yeah, I'm learning a trade
The east river truckers
Is churning with trash
I've got so much money
That I'm spending so fast

When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down

When the shit hits the fan
I'll be sitting on the can
When the whip comes down

Yeah, some called me garbage
While I was sleeping on the street
I never roll
And I never cheat
And I'm filling a need
Yeah, I'm plugging a hole
My mama's so glad
I ain't on the dole

When the whip comes down
Yeah
When the whip comes down
Yeah
When the shit hits the fan
I'll be sitting on the can
When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down

When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down
Yeah, go ahead check it out

Yeah, baby
When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down
I'll be running this town
I'll tell you
When the shit hits the fan
I'll be sitting on the can
When the whip comes down
Yeah

Yeah
When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down
Yeah
When the whip comes down
When the whip comes down
