    Damn the Royalty
    Copyright (C) 1998 by
    Kerry B. Rogers

    It's a new day
    I must find a job
    What is the use?
    When times get rough
    They'll just let me go.

    I pace the dock of life
    Looking for sails
    But, the water's too shallow
    For my ship to come in.

    Damn the royalty
    Their heads turn from my strife
    In their outstretched hand
    A pink slip - might as well be a knife
    Where's the loyalty?
    Don't tell me that's just life
    I'm on the outside lookin' in.

    Standing in line
    Waiting my turn
    Get to the booth
    Look through the bars of life

    Grumpy old bitch
    Serving this mob
    I'm on the outside
    Lookin' in for a job.

    Damn the royalty
    Their heads turn from my strife
    In their outstretched hand
    A pink slip - might as well be a knife
    Where's the loyalty
    Don't tell me that's just life
    I'm on the outside lookin' in.

    A decade has passed
    I own a store
    Keeping my business
    Is so hard anymore

    Who will it be?
    Who gets the axe?
    Constantly fending off the bills
    And the tax

    Now I'm royalty
    My head turns from their strife
    In my outstretched hand
    A pink slip - might as well be a knife
    Where's my loyalty?
    I guess that's just life
    I'm on the inside lookin' out.
