HERCULES

All you fear, is fear itself
Check out your own back yard before you check out someone else
Railroad track, in my neighborhood
Ain’t no trains around that part just ain’t no good

Wanna know, what’s going down,
When the pimp on the corner looks like the sharpest cat in town
Jungle rule, can’t be no fool
Might get caught by the hook of a crook no time for cool
Look out jay, what you say, what you carrying brother
I hope you’re clean cause the man is mean, don’t come another further

We all know the answer, will come out in time
I might even carry some of your load, right along with mine

Thank you ma’am, mister please
‘Cause I must be Hercules
I must be Hercules

Like a bird, on the wing
I just wanna be free enough to do my thing
I can feel the pressure, from every side
If you not gonna help, don’t hurt, just pass me by

Oh, no
Hercules
I must be Hercules

Jungle rule, can’t be no fool
Devil is on the loose, no cool
Got your feet, in the sand
Got to be down with the cats that around and still got the face the man

Talk about me if you please
I must be Hercules

Duckin’ rocks, catchin’ stones
Movin’ how can I survive what’s going on
Beg, steal and borrow
Somehow I’ve got to make it to tomorrow
Can’t depend, on no-one else
Comin’ up the hard way I’ve got to save myself

Talk about me if you please
I must be Hercules
