lyrics

FAMILY MAN
pj higgins / dubulah

woah oh
IM AM DI FAMILY MAN YES
woah oh
HE AM A MAN CAN RUN TINGS
woah oh
IM AM A FAMILY MAN YES
SAY AM A MAN CAN RUN
IM AM A FAMILY MAN YES

hes a family man
hes a family man.....

HIS GIRL IS CALLED SAMANTHA, USED TO LIVE IN NOTTING HILL...
HE THINKS HES LIKE THE REST OF US, BUT THATS A BITTER PILL
I LIVE A COUPLE OF MILES AND CANT AFFORD THE RENT
MY MONEYS ALL SPENT

WERE IN THIS THING TOGETHER SAID HES JUST LIKE YOU AND ME
EMBRACE HIM LIKE A BROTHER WELCOME TO MY FAMILY

family man (IM AM A FAMILY MAN YES, SAY AM A MAN CAN RUN) X 4

WITH THE RISING OF INFLATION YOU CURTAIL MY LIBERTY
IM SITTING HERE IN DARKNESS THERES NO MONEY ON MY KEY
NO IM NOT IN GAZA I JUST CANT AFFORD THE FUEL
HOW COULD YOU BE SO CRUEL..?

DAVID, YOUVE HAD YOUR CHANCE, ITS TIME TO GO
AND NEXT TIME ROUND YOU WONT GET THE VOTE
WE'RE SICK AND TIRED OF ALL YOUR LIES
YOU HAVE NO CONCEPT OF OUR LIVES

hes a family man
IF YOU WANNA TRADE PLACES WITH ME - THEN COME LETS GO
family man
I BET YOU WOULDNT LAST 1 WEEK IN A FLAT EATING BEANS ON TOAST

SCRIMP AND SAVE AND SIGN ON,
EVERYDAY YOU LOOK FOR WORK BUT THERES NONE
ALL THE WHILE YOUR TRYING TO DODGE EVICTION
EVERY TIME YOU RAISE YOUR HEAD A BILL COMES

RULE DI COUNTRY, A TOMFOOLERY,
YOU NEVER LISTEN ONCE TO WHAT THE PEOPLE DEM SAY
SAY YAH NAH ONE OF US, NA RIDE PON BUS
MI CANT FIND A PAIR OF YOU THAT NO ABOUT RUB
COME TO MI CRIB, BEFORE WE GET RID
LET ME SHOW YOU WHAT YOUR LAST POLICY DID, EH
PATRONISING, NEED REMINDING,
BOARDING SCHOOL ME NEVER GO INSIDE IT.

family man, hes a family man, hes a family man...

DAVID YOUR MY BROTHER, BUT YOU CANT BE LISTENING
THATS WHY WHEN RE- ELECTION COMES YOU KNOW YOULL NEVER WIN
YOUVE BURNED DOWN ALL YOUR BRIDGES, AND YOUVE SEVERED ALL YOUR LINKS
SO HERES WHAT I THINK X 2

hes a family man X 4
