Nervous
by Kurtis Blow

You talkin' to me? You make me nervous

Now my generation
Has got this inclination
To think this ain't the land of milk and honey
Missiles every place
Can destroy the human race
And everyone is cryin' for more money

There's an actor and a spy
Who can't see eye to eye
Well who gives them the right to run the place?
There are brothers who are sisters
And misses who are misters
And things keep fallin' down from outer space

And everybody says they want to serve us
But the only thing they do is make me nervous
Really makes me Nervous

Corporate leader's smokin' joints
Big time athletes shavin' points
And all the time they do it with a smile
Middle class commuters
Steali'n millions with computers
And they might just get probation for awhile

But for ordinary folk
The ... sistem's just a joke
They're laughin from New York to the Coast
They bargain on the plea
And the lowyer gets his fee
And everybody's happy well almost

And everybody says they want to serve us
But the only thing they do is make me nervous
Really makes me Nervous

If you're not a lazy slob
You go lookin' for job
But I hope that you ain't lookim' in Detroit
Where they used to make cars
All they do is hit the bars
'Cause the Japanese have markets to exploit

The rich keep getting richer
Drink Martinis by the pitcher
While the rest of us are lookin' for a break
We play lotto and the number
While the politicians slumber
'Cause the politicians know It's all fake

And everybody says they want to serve us
But the only thing they do is make me nervous
Really makes me Nervous

The meaning is right here
Mr. nixon made it clear
Make sure you hit record when you roll the tape
The stuff that gets leftover
Might just keep you out of clover
And you'll never, ever make your great escape

So I hope you've learned the lesson
It's the message of the session
You can take it, but you go to take it slow
Keep it cool and keep it clean
Do it all behind the scene
And if they ask you, just tell' em you don't know

And everybody says they want to serve us
But the only thing they do is make me nervous
Really makes me Nervous
