Gonna stick my enchilada in the microwave
I ain’t thinkin’ about the money but all the time I’d save
Come on over in my kitchen honey
Little Bobby Johnson got the blues

Well the bonny little prince got caught up in the curls
They’re gonna kick his ass for messin’ with the girls
When you got a silver spoon you better
Stick it where the sun ain’t gonna shine

I’ve heard it all before, But I can’t take this shit no more

Can’t take it, can’t take it, can’t take it no more
I ain’t gonna take it any more
Can’t take it, can’t take it, can’t take it no more
I can’t take this shit no more

Yeh the great southern land is goin’ up in flames
The government is tryin’ to say it ain’t because of climate change
And you wonder why we’re takin’ to the streets

Next thing they’re gonna say you ain’t got no right
To say what you think about the great Australian Bight
I used to lean to the left, but now the whole shebang is outta sight

I’ve heard it all before…

Everybody’s getting’ angry, gettin’ crazy out there
We’re goin’ to rack and ruin, and nobody really cares
’bout the brothers and the sisters workin’ day and night to keep it all on keel

We got the green ones, the blue ones, the brown ones, the yellow ones
I ain’t got the money but somebody tried to sell me one
I like it transcendental but I think I’m goin’ mental – it’s unreal

I’ve heard it all before…

I flickin’ off the box, ‘cos I can’t believe the news
They’re tryin’ out crystal meth on all the kangaroos
Come on over in my kitchen honey
Little Bobby Johnson got the blues

I don’t know if you know it but I used to be a fan of Elmore James
Everyday I have the blues, I’m a sad boy
Gonna wake up in the mornin’, I believe I dust my broom
Gonna shake your moneymaker, I’m a bad boy
