Same Old Song And Dance
( Tyler / Perry )



Heyyyy hey yeah.....

Get'cha self a cooler lay yourself low
Coincidental murder with nothin' to show
When the judge's constipation will go to his head
And his wife's aggravation you soon end up dead

It's the same old story
Same old song and dance my friend
It's the same old story
Same old song and dance my friend

Got'cha with da cocaine they found wit'chor gun
No smoothy face lawyer could get'cha undone
Say love ain't the same on the south side of town
You could look but'cha ain't gonna find it around

It's the same old story
Same old song and dance my friend
It's the same old story
Same old story same old song and dance

Fate comes a knockin'
Doors start lockin'
Your old time connection
Change your direction
Ain't gonna change it
Can't rearrange it
Can't stand the pain
When It's all the same to you... my friend

When you're low down and dirty from walkin' the street
Wit'cha old hurdy-gurdy no one to meet
Say love ain't the same on the south side of town
You could look but'cha ain't gonna find it around

It's the same old story
Same old song and dance my friend
It's the same old story... same old story
Same old song and dance... yeah






This first line of the second verse was changed on some of the 1980 Greatest Hits albums... depending on what year your copy was pressed and released... the edited single version of the song was used along with an alternate lyric... so instead of singing...

Got'cha with da cocaine they found wit'chor gun

... the replacement line is...

You shady lookin' loser you played with my gun
