Song Meaning
Verse 1
Now what you gonna do, when the welfare turn it's back on you?
Now what you gonna do-hoo-hoo-hoo, when the welfare turn it's back on you
Now, you be standin' there stranded, there's ain't a thing that you can do
Verse 2
Now you look all through your house, yes, you can't, find a piece of bread
Now you look all through your hou-hou-house, yeah, you can't find a piece of bread
Sometime you begin to wonder, if you be better off, better off, dead
Verse 3
You go down to the welfare
Give 'em one, two report
Something they sellin' you
Will surely get your goat
Verse 4
If you tell 'em you sick
You better have a bad cough
'Cause if you don't
They be ready to throw you off
Verse 5
What you gonna do, when the welfare turns it's back on you?
You be standin' there stranded,
There ain't a thing, there ain't a thing you
There ain't a thing-hing-hing-hing-hing,
That you can do
