The loan shark and his crew so self-assured. A stack of money. A crisp new suit. New fresh hundreds. Take as much as you need maybe more. Meet me at the restaurant. The one at the end of the mall. Your life has changed now don’t spend it all. You’d thick you were on Barrow street with all the old banks. Instead it’s a dirty alley by a run down warehouse in the dark and empty. Now you are their chicken. Now you are their meat. There s but just one of you. Amidst these too fleet feet. What have you solved? You could have starved to death upon your own. The difference now is you have constant company. And the favor of an un-payable loan. For all the teeth are smiling. And you my friend are bait. The song will soon be diminished. A painful end becomes your fate. You could have had it otherwise. But you knew better somehow. You thought the world was at your fingertips. A golden life living off the fatted cow. But now you are their chicken. And you’ll rue each day your born, You could have stayed out of this jungle. A better way to toot your horn. You bloody dirty beggar! There’s nothing that’s not too good for you. You’ll eat it with me knuckles before this day is through. Your biddy lung is punctured. Your bleeding from your soul. Pay up to stop my uncture. Spread some magic. Spread some dough. For your table is bare. You no longer live anywhere. There is no place to hide. Bend over my pride. Take your whippin’ like a man. Struggle all that you can. Your are is mine. You’ve run out of time! You’re my chicken. You’re my chicken. My bright young lad!
