Gil Scott-Heron: Whitey On The Moon

A rat done bit my sister Nell

With Whitey on the moon

Her face and arms began to swell

And Whitey's on the moon

I can't pay no doctor bills

But Whitey's on the moon

Ten years from now I'll be paying still

While whitey's on the moon

You know, the man just upped my rent last night

Cause whitey's on the moon

No hot water, no toilets, no lights

But whitey's on the moon

I wonder why he's uppin' me?

Cause whitey's on the moon?

Well i was already given him fifty a week

And now whitey's on the moon

Taxes takin' my whole damn check

The junkies make me a nervous wreck

The price of food is goin up

And if all that crap wasn't enough

A rat done bit my sister nell

With whitey on the moon

Her face and arm began to swell

And whitey's on the moon

With all that money i made last year

For whitey on the moon

How come I ain't got no money here?

Hmm, whitey's on the moon

You know I just about had my fill

Of whitey on the moon

I think I'll send these doctor bills

airmail special

(To whitey on the moon)
