I was born there, before I knew better
Went to school there, but learned to avoid that
Fell in love there, but love couldn't thrive there
Picked it up, and I left it behind, said

Man, alive
Get me out of this barrel of crabs

Most our homes were depressed by division
What passed for friendship, was really protection
Any work there, disolved into trouble
Ate me up, living life on the bubble, said

Man, alive
Get me out of this barrel of crabs

Everytime I'd gain some ground, another man's scheme would just pull me back down
Everytime I spied the top, the next poor sucker's there to give me the drop

Man, alive
Get me out of this barrel of crabs
I said, man, alive
Get me out of this barrel of crabs
Man, alive
Get me out of this barrel of crabs
