Drinking Brew For Breakfast

At least half the time when I’m listening to this I mishear the lyric as, Rudy got bail. I have no adequate explanation for it. I am constantly rewriting the rest of the lyrics to fit them to that baseline though. And that’s always fun.

How you get so rude and a reckless?
Don’t you be so crude and a feckless
You been drinking brew for breakfast

…..

CAUSE WHAT I NEED I JUST DON’T HAVE
FIRST THEY CURSE, THEN THEY PRESS ME TILL I HURT
RUDIE CAN’T FAIL
