"The Goin' Gets Tough from the Getgo" as written by and Michael Melchiondo Aaron Freeman....
Smack dab in the middle of a situation overlooked by fools
Tables turned, lessons learned, you get burned for playing by the rules
Time is lost, that's the cost, oh brother, you get shit on the end
Scrape for a dollar, you'll die smilin', learnin' the same lessons once again

The goin' gets tough from the getgo go man go
Oh brother, not another motherfucker
Gotta go now
(Right dude?
That's right!)
The goin' gets tough from the getgo go man go
Oh brother, not another motherfucker
Gotta go now
(Isn't that right, dude?
That's right, Gener, so right)
The goin' gets tough from the getgo go man go
Oh brother, not another motherfucker
Gotta go now
(Isn't that right, Gener? Tell me, tell me the truth
You're right, tell me again)
The goin' gets tough from the getgo go man go
Oh brother, not another motherfucker
Gotta go now (oh, check it out)
The goin' gets tough from the getgo go man go
Oh brother, not another motherfucker
The goin' gets tough from the getgo go man go
Oh brother, oh, take it

Smack dab in the middle of a situation overlooked by fools
Tables turned, lessons learned, you get burned for playing by the rules
(You know that happens, Gener!
And I know!)
Time is lost, that's the cost, oh brother, you get shit on the end
Scrape for a dollar, you'll die smilin', learnin' the same lessons once again

The goin' gets tough from the getgo go man go
Oh brother, not another motherfucker
Gotta go now
(Once again)
The goin' gets tough from the getgo go man go
Oh brother, not another motherfucker
Gotta go now

I think it's over now, Gener! (Gotta go now)
Oh God!

    General CommentThis song sounds like something Gene and Dean came up with in 10 minutes, and yet... I can't NOT listen to it! It's so humorous with those silly voices and the way they keep going, "Isn't that right, Deaner?" "Oh, soo right." Quite funny.
