"Mama Didn't Raise No Fool" as written by and Morello/claypool/lalonde/mantia....
The best of times, the worst of times,
The times you can't ignore.
Sometimes you bite the bullet
And flip flop on the floor.

They tell you where to go,
And they tell you what to do.
They set your face on fire
Then stomp it out with their shoes.

I ain't no fool.
Mama didn't raise no fool.

The times I can't complain
Are the times I do the most.
On a diet of black coffee
And prozac buttered toast.

These eunuchs in their prada
And Gucci flavored clothes.
Wouldn't know a fresh perspective
If it bit 'em up on the nose.

I ain't no fool.
Mama didn't raise no fool.

Don't do as they say,
Just say as they do.
No flavor's quite so bitter
As the taste of one's own shoe.

I ain't no fool.
Mama didn't raise no fool.

    General CommentThis song is about the dipshits of nowadays. Dont be modern and stupid and trendy. Be you and do what you want. Nice slide on Tom Morello's part in this song.

    General CommentYeah I think it's about how you are supposed to look like you're following who you are supposed to, but think in your own way. So, you look like you're being 'normal', so you don't get any shit from others, but in fact are being yourself.

    General Commenti like the line "On a diet of black coffee and
    prozac buttered toast." becuase it shows how when people think there fat they have to diet to impress people, goddamn just be your self
