lyrics

I got a call from the landlady
Asking for the rent
I said, "I'm sorry, but that money's already been spent
See, I had to go out and put gas in my car
And then I went back and spent the rest at the bar
Besides, the house I'm paying you for is falling apart
I could go live on skid row and that'd be just as smart"
She said, "You lousy, broke punk, that's the price you gotta pay
But if you don't have the rent, you can have it your way!"

I got a bad predilection
For a good time addiction
And now I got my
I got my notice of eviction

Spent the rent!
Yeah I spent the rent
Because landlords and warlords
Ain't nobody's friends
Spent the rent!
You know I spent the rent
Because landlords and warlords
Ain't nobody's friends

I got a letter from the taxman
Demanding my funds
I said "I'm sorry, but I ain't gonna buy no guns
For a war the president didn't need to declare
So he can send my friends to fight and die over there
Besides, I'd rather spend my cash on beer
Than pay any cop's salary working around here"
He said, "For that Commie-talk, we'll lock you up, so beware!"
I said, "At least in jail, I'll get decent health care!"

Conscientious objector
And now I'm on a vector
To being locked up by that
Homeland Security inspector

Spent the rent!
You know I spent the rent
Because landlords and warlords
Ain't nobody's friends
Spent the rent!
You know I spent that rent
Because landlords and warlords
Ain't nobody's friends

Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Freak out!

Spent the rent!
I spent the rent
Because landlords and warlords
Ain't nobody's friends
Spent the rent!
You know I spent that rent
Because landlords and warlords
Ain't nobody's friends

They ain't nobody's friends!
