I've been going through hell And it's starting to tell. Wanna stand up and yell I wish I had a soul to sell All I see is down on me, I don't need down on me, Everybody is down on me, Get out of my tree, stop crowding me. Ain't it always the way How people treat you today Fuck you over and say, "Now go and have a real nice day!" They must be down on me, Can't you see down on me, I don't need them down on me Let me breathe, stop drowning me. {Guitar solo} A |----5--9-|---5-------|----5--9--7-/-9-\-7-|-5--7--5-\-4--5~-| E |-7~------|-7---7--5~-|-7~-----------------|-----------------| They must be down on me, He and she down on me, My family is down on me, Even Mr. T is down on me!
