    Lyrics

    See that black boy over there, runnin' scared
    His ol' man's in a bottle
    He done quit his 9 to 5 to drink full time
    So now he's livin' in the bottle

    See that Black boy over there, runnin' scared
    His ol' man got a problem
    Pawned off damn near everything, his ol'
    Woman's weddin' ring for a bottle

    And don't you think it's a crime
    When time after time, people in the bottle

    See that sista, sho wuz fine before she
    Started drinkin' wine
    From the bottle
    Said her ol' man committed a crime

    And he's doin' time,
    So now she's in the bottle
    She's out there on the avenue, all by herself
    Sho' needs help from the bottle

    Preacherman tried to help her out,
    She cussed him out and hit him in the head with a bottle
    And don't you think it's a crime
    When time after time, people in the bottle

    See that gent in the wrinkled suit
    He done damn near blown his cool
    To the bottle
    He wuz a doctor helpin' young girls along

    If they wuzn't too far gone to have problems
    But defenders of the dollar eagle
    Said "What you doin', Doc, it ain't legal, "
    And now he's in the bottle.

    Now we watch him everyday tryin' to
    Chase the pigeons away
    From the bottle
    And don't you think it's a crime
    When time after time, people in the bottle
