about

I cook, and cabbage is the cheapest veggie. Every poor grandma knows about cabbage and even though my parents couldn't really cook, I'm getting to know this one in particular in my poverty. This song is also about women, and money. And it's about how poor people just want cabbage, and I hate austerity politics trying to take away the basic things that sustain people in poverty. I always give 2 singles to people asking for money on the street and I've busked, everyone should give a little more and eat some cabbage. When you cook it wrong and gotta eat it, that's poor people shit that builds the kind of character most middle class people don't have. It's the asshole vegetable that you have to fight with just to make it edible, great metaphor for life.

lyrics

Cabbage

They just want Cabbage

Get your hands up if you got in for free
I'mma need a sawbuck next time you see me
I ain't greedy feed the needy get a shirt, get a CD
this ain't no motherfucking charity

Call me Cab Calloway, cause I got a check today,
then I got a text today, from your old ex, she say
that she want sex so I pull up in a rented Chevrolet
neck, back, neck, back, neck, Andale!
Ah di ah di ah di ah, Oh di oh di oh di oh
if you want to talk about your bills, bitch, I got my own
Banjo trap, Trash grass, Honkey talk, Hick Hop
call it what you want to call it. I just open up shop.

Cabbage

They just want Cabbage

Call me Cab Calloway, cause she caught the KT
my brother ain't Elwood, no, this ain't the 80's
My mama couldn't raise me, creamed corn instead of gravy,
fuck a job, I'm lazy, fuck a fade, I ain't shady
fuck sleep, I'm crazy

I'm so hungry it ain't funny, last girlie was a bunny
hippedy hopped up on me, pushed it up against my tummy
then she made my eggs runny so I showed her the door
I miss your mom cause they don't make 'em like that anymore

grab a bucket grab a mop, never ever call the cops
grab a bucket grab a mop, never ever call the cops
maybe I'm an easy mark, comes from getting what you want
easy come, easy go, blow it off, get some more

Cabbage

They just want Cabbage
