lyrics

I’m under pressure, from this crazy life
Stressed out that i won’t get it right
Stressed that I just might drown unaware
At the bottom of the pool of all the worlds cares

I gotta gel my hair, get some bigger rims
Look good at the beach, gotta get my spray tan
Gotta Loose a few pounds, be seen around town
Gotta make sure all my greys are died brown

Gotta keep myself clean, so I don’t smell
And when I get gas - make sure you don’t tell
Well, I gotta get this song heard
Gotta make a viral video to spread the word

My clothes look absurd, I gotta stay in style
Hit the gym to workout every once and a while
Make sure among men, I’m not the lesser
What a stresser… I’m under pressure

Chorus
Under pressure baby
This old world, This old world got me under pressure


At home, you know I'm feeling the pressure
Make sure that my kids are up when we measure
Make sure they learning and their life is a pleasure
Gotta be around to help whenever

I need some chedda to keep these mouths fed
I need some mo chedda in case id drop dead
I need to manicure the lawn, clean out the shed
Clean out the gutters, tidy up the flower bed
Instead, I worry about my identity getting stole
I worry that you might catch me picking my nose
My percentage is low, need to work on free throws.
I need to be more around my kids as they grow

I need to do my taxes, I need back hair waxes
I need to fix all the broken toys made of plastics
I need to Help my kids in sports be the fastest
And I need to do more Mr. Mom acrobatics

But I checked the mathematics, and it just don’t add
So much pressure at being an All-American dad
I gotta plan a Disney vacation so my family can take it
I’m under pressure, and there ain’t no faking it

Chorus

And you know this world got me under pressure
Just finished listening to President’s presser
World upside down, We need a commander
I should probably get involved, but can’t take the slander

Feel pressure to do something about ISIS
Probably should do something to end the huger crises
And end my addictions to all these vices
Gotta make sure I keep up with cost of living prices

Under pressure stop global warming
Save the whales, Help the survivors of the storm in
Haiti, I ain’t done anything to help them folk
Feel pressure to fix our Justice system that’s broke

Under pressure, can’t be apathetic
people killing babies because of their genetics
I should do something, not just stand by
But I sit around and watch on TV worldwide genocide

Under pressure but at the same time numb
Didn’t give the homeless man change how come?
(I could have gave him some)
Under pressure to eat in the know
The food I’m eating is probably GMO

And it’s not organic, and it’s causing me panic
I just learned that my grocery list destroys the planet
I can’t stand it, So much for pleasure
…...I’m under pressure

Chorus
