Ask Somebody Who Ain't (If U Think the System's Workin'...) - Lyrics

She walked in Krystal's
I was getting some grub from my
cousin Jason at the drive-through window
They was wrong with the order so I went inside
I saw a woman about thirty-five trying to apply

She had three children
She said two girls that were beautiful twins
And a boy name Ian, y'all
Opportunities rare and the money was low
She was down with that ramen noodle-type show
Sorta like a college student

She had this smile y'all
That would fill the world with happiness and joy
For anyone that could bring it outta her
Where's her man or at least her five other children
Those were questions I felt like
asking but I was afraid to know the answer

She never planned for things to ever go that way
If you think the system's working - ask somebody who ain't
If you think the system's working - ask somebody who ain't
Ask somebody who ain't
Ask somebody who ain't
Ask somebody who ain't

She pulled her bootstraps
But her boots were torn and her
feet were worn out from all the bullcrap
This country promised her the pursuit of happiness
Maverick bombs and other plans for pacifists
Can you take a joke?

And all those things gotta try to defend our entire
country from corruption with the words of Thomas Jefferson

She never planned for things to ever go that way
If you think the system's working - ask somebody who ain't
Ask somebody who ain't
Ask somebody who ain't
Ask somebody who ain't
Ask somebody who ain't
Ask somebody who ain't
Ask somebody who ain't
Ask somebody...
