I used to like this song...

...but now, it just makes me roll my eyes:

...A friend of mine was a-workin' hard, savin' all his pay
Like Jesse James the IRS stole most of it away
Then he got chased by a street gang and he finally found a phone
He called up the police and they put him on hold
What he needed was a real good, feel good song...
 No, dude. What he needed was a gun and the willingness to defend himself. On second thought, the guy could have been in Chicago or New York City, where the right of self-defense still isn't recognized as it should be...but then, as they say, better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.
