Under the Hammer

This song is by Gil Scott-Heron and appears on the album Bridges (1977).

Good advice is sure enough hard to come by
Bad advice surrounds you constantly
Good advice you just can't put no price on
Bad advice is easy 'cause it's free

But through it all somehow we're different
We think there's nothing to it so we plunge faithfully through it
No matter how hard it rains if we don't profit from the change
We're under the hammer totally

(Talkin' bout) Under the hammer from the day you was born
Under the hammer and out there on your own
Good advice don't make it if there's no one there to take it
You're just under the hammer totally

Now I meant to tell you something about the drinkin'
Yeah But you don't want to hear a word I say
Naw and You don't care what I've been thinking
Because you control things your own way

And since you've got things under control
There ain't nothing to it ain't no reason you should do it
No matter how hard it rains if you don't profit from the change
You're back under the hammer totally

Under the hammer from the day you was born
Under the hammer and out there on your own
Good advice don't make it if there's no one there to take it
You're just under the hammer totally

Good advice is sure enough hard to come by
When bad advice surrounds you constantly
Good advice you just can't put no price on
And bad advice is easy 'cause its free

And through it all somehow we're different
We think there's nothing to it so we plunge faithfully through it
And No matter how hard it rains if we don't profit from the change
We're under the hammer totally

You're under the hammer from the day you was born
Under the hammer and out there on your own
Good advice don't make it if there's no one there to take it
You're back under the hammer totally

Under the hammer from the day you was born
Ain't no surprising you now that you're full grown
Under the hammer from the day you was born
Ain't no surprising you now that you're full grown
Good advice don't make it if there's no one there to take it
You're just under the hammer totally
