lyrics

I'd rather be stranded on the highway, thumbing a ride with the sun beating down on my back, than call you on the phone and ask you to pick me up, 'cause you'll rant all the way back about how much gasoline you used to make this trip, and demand that I reimburse you for it all. Then, you'll tell me that if I had just checked the fluids in my car before I left, I'd have never had to make that fateful call. In emergencies, what I really need is some help, not a hassle; in a crisis time, what I need to find is a friend, not an asshole. I don't need your griping or your late advice; if I think to call you, I'll just think twice. I'd rather be standing on the corner, holding a sign reading "God Bless You; Will Work for Food," than call you on the phone and ask you for a few bucks, 'cause you'll cop a major 'tude about how you'll have to postpone paying a bill just so I could have a bit more food to eat. Then, you'll tell me that if I had just put a bit more cash aside on my last check, then my Frigidaire wouldn't be so bare this week. You've gone out of your way, and that's quite nice of you, but you know that's what a friend's supposed to do. If it's that big a hassle to help your brother out, then just go your way and I'll do without.
