lyrics

John gets out of jail on the first so you know he’s gonna stay at my house
He’s gonna call me “the c word” and that’s the nicest thing he does with his mouth
He may be in his fifties but don’t look a day over 72
He’s gonna try to break your fingers when he shakes hands with you
Think fast

Candice has a son to raise but I can’t send a gift for his birthday
She doesn’t need my pity, she’s doing fine on what her husband makes
But she’s happy to call the cops merely on a silly whim
It turns into a domestic charge and now they’ve gotta take somebody in

But that’s just how it is nowadays
You’ve gotta accept people for who they are

Linda’s got a new boyfriend and most of her family is dead
But what could she do if she’s up against old age and heroin?
She’s not gonna raise her daughter though she fought for custody
She’d rather drink in her family’s honor – it can’t be her fault, can’t you see?

That’s just how it is nowadays
You’ve gotta accept people for who they are
Who are you to suggest another way?
We’ve gotta accept people for who they are

You can name ‘em, you can shame ‘em, but if this world takes all kinds
Then the second you complain you are just another bully in disguise

Mary’s nodded out again but should we really wake her up?
Gettin’ high at the pharmacy is what this nation’s founded on
People went to war to fight so we could be degenerates
Innocent people gave their lives so we can all be hypocrites

That’s just how it is nowadays
You’ve gotta accept people for who they are
Even when we’re tempted to complain
We’ve gotta accept people for who they are
