Occupy Ruby Slippers:
There's No Place Like Home
Maybe now I can get some peace and quiet.
Cops finally ran those assholes outta my home.
Idiots had no dignity, pissin and crappin all over,
smellin up the neighborhood and I couldn't get no
fuckin sleep. Don't know and frankly don't give
a shit what their bitchin was all about. I just want
some goddamn respect. And quiet. Jesus freakin
Christ, at least the rich bastards they're pissed at
will toss me a buck or two once in a while, but
these little shits - nooo - they just sat on my sofa
for weeks and fingered those blackberry
somethingorothers and wouldn't leave me the hell alone.
Mad cause they gotta pay for school or some such
crap. Yep, everybody's got somethin to bitch about.
Some assholes have an axe to grind and some have
their crosses to bear. I just wanna have a drink and
lay down for a while. Finally. Shit, finally I can
stretch out on the sofa and have some peace and
