Why I don't listen to the radio.

I very rarely listen to the radio. The other day, however, my iPod battery died (not sure why I am SO bad at remembering to charge it). I turned on the radio to see what was on. And I was reminded yet again why I don't listen to the radio. It's because I have to stumble on songs like this. Interestingly, the second I heard the opening lyric, I knew it was probably a Kid Rock song. Boo. I am not a fan. Here are the lyrics to the song I heard yesterday. It's a Kid Rock original.

I got my Cat Scratch Fever eight-track
My best friend's in a gun rack
I'm a lowlife
I owe everybody money
I think racist jokes are funny
I'm a lowlife
I got a dirty mind, a gutter mouth
I'm makin' time, I'm goin' out
With your wife

Cuz I'm a lowlife
I'm a lowlife

I got kids I never seen
And their momma's seventeen
I'm a lowlife
I take strippers out to breakfast
You can add that to my checklist
I'm a lowlife
Ahh the landlord called the rent is due
I spent it all on a Kiss tattoo
I Rock n Roll all night

Cuz I'm a lowlife
I'm a lowlife
I'm a lowlife
Livin' the highlife

I'm watchin' porno on the TV
Wonderin' why she'd ever leave me
I'm a lowlife
The object of my affection
Asked the police for protection
I'm a lowlife
The romance is gone, I'm doin' fine
Me and your mom had a real good time
Just last night

Cuz I'm a lowlife
I'm a lowlife

I make black music for the white man
Keep cocaine upon my nightstand
I'm a lowlife
Ain't never hung out in the Catskills
But I've been to jail in Nashville
I'm a lowlife
I've got a dirty mind, a gutter mouth
I'm makin' time, I'm goin' out
With your wife

I'm a lowlife
I'm a lowlife
I'm a lowlife
Livin' the highlife

Ugh, thanks for reminding me why I don't listen to the radio also.

Yuck.
Of all the people in the world, I fail to see the appeal of Kid Rock. I so badly want him to wash his hair... (regularly)
