lyrics

don't walk like you're scared again
that'll only make him angry
your face only makes it seem
like there's plenty of money comin' rollin' in
don't stop and don't look around
you don't know where he's aiming - no!
if you got pockets you're gonna pay
so you can save your hope for judgement day

a ticket to take a bottom over the top
mixed up and never knowing where to stop
to move halfway up in this town
how can you go that low down low down

she looked up to the sky and then she praised the lord
hands up and amen
now she's waiting for the good times

don't you try and understand
there is no explanation - no!
he needs your fear and he needs your cash
cause the brother's poor and the brother's bad

a ticket to take a bottom over the top
mixed up and never knowing where to stop
to move halfway up in this town
how can you go that low down low down

she looked up to the sky and then she praised the lord
hands up and amen
now she's waiting for the good times
waiting for the good times

a ticket to take a bottom over the top
mixed up and never knowing where to stop
to move around on up in this town
how can you go that low down low down

she looked up to the sky and then she praised the lord
hands up and amen
now she's waiting for the good times
she looked up to the sky and then she praised the lord
hands up and amen
now she's waiting for the good times - hey!
waiting for the good times - no!
(she's-a) waiting for the good times
(she's-a) waiting for the good times - hey!
