Iggy Pop – Modern Day Ripoff Lyrics

Modern Day Ripoff Lyrics – Iggy Pop

She twisted my arm
And I bought the farm
The law on her side
I wish I could hide
I’m guilty as sin
But I know how to win
I don’t know how to die
I don’t know how to cry

I’m squirming in pain
It’s twisting my brain
I carry the ball
I carry it all
And when I am done
I’m still looking for fun
My nose in the grind
I’m so sorry I signed

This fortunate creature
Is my S&M teacher
It’s a modern day ripoff
Modern day ripoff
Modern age ripoff

Modern age ripoff
Ripoff
Ripoff
Ripoff

I got shit in my bucket
I wish I could say “Fuck it”
Publicity target
Each day I enlarge it
A respectable person
Would not do so much cursin’
At least I’m still kickin’
Am I smart, or chicken?

I ran out of blow
A long time ago
I can’t smoke a J
All my ducks fly away
This fortunate creature
Is my S&M teacher
Modern age ripoff
Modern age ripoff

Modern age ripoff
Ripoff
Ripoff
Ripoff
Modern age

Ripoff
Ripoff
Ripoff
Ripoff

Ripoff
Ripoff
Ripoff
Ah, ripoff
Ah

Ah, I’m dying here
