Have you ever been just drivin' around, and ended up in the colored part of town? And you see an old-time wanderoo Jack with a great big T.V. antenna. Then you look out in the back, you can always see a Cadillac. And inside there's about fifteen niggers eatin' one can of beans for dinner. Now ain't that just like a nigger, so the story goes. They just like to live that-a-way, you know? Why, they haven't got one spark of ambition in their minds. They're hard-headed as a dad-blamed mule, and the only reason they go to school is so they can learn to sign their names when they become members of the welfare line.

They're lookin' for a handout
To get somethin' free
Lookin' for a handout
From you and me
And with the consent
Of the president
They're gonna get their way
They're gonna get their way

Now I ain't aimin' to run anybody down, but I know how they operate down in Coontown. Why, they wouldn't hit a lick at a snake if it was curly enough to strike. But when their leader says, "Hey nigger, demonstrate", why, them jigaboos don't even hesitate. 'Cause as a nigger says, "Uhh, hmm, uhh...them's the kind of happenin' we likes."

They're lookin' for a handout
To get somethin' free
Lookin' for a handout
From you and me
And with the consent
Of the president
They're gonna get their way
They're gonna get their way

But one day there's gonna be a stop to all this givin', and darkies you gonna have to account for your livin'. You won't be able to hold your black hand out and wait for somebody to give you your daily bread. 'Cause the master said you'll have to earn your salvation, so you'd better start lookin' over the situation, and stop causin' all this trouble, and be a good 'ol nigger instead.

And quit lookin' for a handout
To get somethin' fee
Quit lookin' for a handout
From Uncle Sam and me
Don't try to integrate
Be glad to segregate
It's better that way
Much better that way

It's better that way-ay-ay-ay-a-a-ay-a-a-ay-ay

    General CommentI think the title of this song is about johnny rebel's life as a homeless hobo out on the street asking for money so he can go get a bottle of jack so his life will be complete until that bottle is gone and he has to go panhandle for another to make his life complete again for a short time...also how he likes to shit in the street and kidnap babies and rape them and set fire to his own testicles and throw bananas at fire trucks...

    General CommentOwnPersonalDemon, why the FUCK are you looking at JR's songs if all you have to say about them is negative? I think he saw you in Coontown lookin' for a handout. And when he pulled a $20 outta his wallet and tore it into shreds infront of you, you shit yourself and started crying. you poor, poor fucking baby.... go drown yourself in the bathtub, if you can find it...
