Shove
IRS is on my case
Shove
My boss says I should comb my hair
Shove
My father thinks that I'm nowhere

Get out of my way or I might shove
Get out of my way or I'm gonna shove

Landlord doesn't like my dog
Shove
My eyes are burning from the smog
Shove
The neighbors say I jam too loud
Shove
America thinks it should be proud

Some guy just pinched my ass
Shove
Drunken bums ain't go no class
Shove
The club says I won't get paid
Shove
It's been months since I've been laid
