    Stuck on the wrong side of da rivah
    Tryin to get across every night n day
    Ol Halleck don’t listen
    His johnson is missing
    Rather write reports then get into the fray
    I’m crawlin, crawlin, crawlin down da rivah!
    Crawlin down da rivah!
    Stuck here! Stuck here! Stuck here!
    Cause Halleck won’t deliver…
    Halleck…. don’t……liv…ahhhhh!
