Topic: same 'ol thing

[ D ]It was Saturday night about  9 o’clock
[ G ]There were lights ‘n sirens on our block
[ A ]Cussin’ and screaming  filled the air
[ D ]It always  ends up  a family affair

There was pushing and shoving and calling names
everybody looking for someone to blame
there’s  nobody  gonna  win   this fight
cuz’ everybody’s wrong , if no one’s right

Chorus
[ A ] Every weekend’s it’s the same ‘ol thing
[ G ] Over and over  ,  a familiar ring
[ A ] ain’t  nothing  easy, nothing good
[ D ] Nothin’ changes in this neighborhood

[ D ]  [ G ]  [ A ]  [ D ]

Oh I’m staying clear and out of view
Don’t need no action in this hullabaloo
I really can’t say just what they did
Just  damn glad it’s not my  kid !

Somebody’s handcuffed in the back seat
I see’em   now going  down the street
Mama’s yelling   it’s gonna be alright
It’s just another wild  Saturday night !

Chorus
[ A ] Every weekend’s it’s the same ‘ol thing
[ G ] Over and over  ,  a familiar ring
[ A ] ain’t nothing is easy, nothing good
[ D ] Nothin’ changes in this neighborhood
