    Not enough DMC love in this post.

    I’m the king of America, there is none higher
    Sucker MCs should call me sire
    To breach my kingdom, you must use fire
    I won’t stop rockin’ till I retire

    Ah, once again my friend
    Not ‘publican
    They said, “democrap”
    But never had this man
    Till the ruler came
    With a cooler name
    Made ya dance and prance and draw the fans insane

    One day I’ll open a museum of tshirts I’ve had to buy because of BoingBoing.

    Kind of like my “Vote Carry in ’04″ shirts with a picture of a goat’s blood soaked Sissy Spacek… except relevant.

    Misspelling “Carrie” didn’t help either.

    I bought that shirt for $5 out of the back of a truck yesterday next to the capitol. Wish I were still in DC now. That was about the most fun thing I can ever imagine doing, ever.

    Aw, come on y’all, I know some of you remember:

    Unemployment at a record highs
    People coming, people going, people born to die
    Don’t ask me, because I don’t know why
    But it’s like that, and that’s the way it is

    [D.M.C.]
    People in the world tryin to make ends meet
    You try to ride car, train, bus, or feet
    I said you got to work hard, you want to compete
    It’s like that, and that’s the way it is
    Huh!

    [Run & D.M.C. alternate lines for the remainder of the song]
    Money is the key to end all your woes
    Your ups, your downs, your highs and your lows
    Won’t you tell me the last time that love bought you clothes?
    It’s like that, and that’s the way it is

    Bills rise higher every day
    We receive much lower pay
    I’d rather stay young, go out and play
    It’s like that, and that’s the way it is
    Huh!

    Wars going on across the sea
    Street soldiers killing the elderly
    Whatever happened to unity?
    It’s like that, and that’s the way it is

    Disillusion is the word
    That’s used by me when I’m not heard
    I just go through life with my glasses blurred
    It’s like that, and that’s the way it is
    Huh!

    You can see a lot in this lifespan
    Like a bum eating out of a garbage can
    You noticed one time he was your man
    It’s like that (what?) and that’s the way it is

    You should have gone to school, you could’ve learned a trade
    But you laid in the bed where the bums have laid
    Now all the time you’re crying that you’re underpaid
    It’s like that (what?) and that’s the way it is
    Huh!

    One thing I know is that life is short
    So listen up homeboy, give this a thought
    The next time someone’s teaching why don’t you get taught?
    It’s like that (what?) and that’s the way it is

    If you really think about it times aren’t that bad
    The one that flexes with successes will make you glad
    Stop playing start praying, you won’t be sad
    It’s like that (what?) and that’s the way it is
    Huh!

    When you feel you fail sometimes it hurts
    For a meaning in life is why you search
    Take the bus or the train, drive to school or the church
    It’s like that, and that’s the way it is

    Here’s another point in life you should not miss
    Do not be a fool who’s prejudiced
    Because we’re all written down on the same list
    It’s like that (what?) and that’s the way it is
    Huh!

    You know it’s like that, and that’s the way it is
    Because it’s like that, and that’s the way it is
    [Repeat these lines til fade]

    The link goes to a similar, but not the same (and not as good) version of the shirt.

    Is one a rip of the other?

    I’d love a link for the shirt pictured in the post, if anybody has one…
