Original Translation of Slang

I thought that was your voice
I thought that was my car
Now we ain't ever met before
But I know who you are
You're living in my house
And I'm living in a tent
And don't laugh, this second job of mine
Is paying both our rents

You're out here buying Happy Meals
And I'm eating rice and pintos
You so much as crack a smile at me, man
I'll come through this here window

 



we ain't ever met before we have never met before




this second job of mine is paying both our rents Because I pay my ex-wife alimony and you are living with her, I am supporting you too.
Happy Meal children's meal at McDonalds
rice and pintos rice and beans
You so much as crack a smile at me, man
I'll come through this here window
If you laugh at my unfortunate situation, I will come through the take-out window where I am working and beat you.

CHORUS
Well you took my wife
And you took my kids
And you took that life
That I used to live
My pride, the pool, the boat, my tools, my dreams, the dog, the cat
Yeah I think that's just about everything
Oh I almost forgot
Do you want fries with that?

 









Do you want fries with that? Question typically asked of customers by fast food employees at restaurants such as Burger King and McDonalds

Your ketchup's in the bag
And a check is in the mail
I hope your chicken's raw inside
And I hope your bun is stale
I'm supposed to tell you
"Please come back"
But how 'bout this instead?
I hope you both choke on a pickle
Man, that would tickle me to death
I don't know what you're waiting on
You're holding up the line
Oh man, you ain't got no change coming back
Are you out of your mind?

CHORUS

 


a check is in the mail phrase normally used when no check has been sent



"Please come back" Another required phrase for fast food employees
'bout about

tickle me to death really make me laugh
waiting on waiting for
You're holding up the line You are making everyone wait for you
ain't got no don't have any
out of your mind crazy

CHORUS
