Default Just Can't Win?

I'm not certain if the song is called "Just Can't Win" or not, but trying to find this song's name and the band attached to it, I found that like the supposed title I, too, just can't win.

The other night my friend wanted to hear Rick James' Super Freak, so we looked it up on Youtube. I told him that the beat was a lot like that Mc Hammer song, "Can't Touch This", so I ended up clicking on the link provided and low and behold... It wasn't Mc Hammer. Oh, it had the lyrics that it promised, and the screen showed the man himself, but the song wasn't "Can't Touch This"

I listened to the song that was actually playing and liked it. But although I tried hard to find what the song is - I read the poster's comments cussing about how that wasn't "Can't Touch This" and tried to Google the lyrics - I just couldn't, and can't. I posted a question using my user name and my friend's user name, but I guess not enough time has gone by to get any answers.

I guess for some reason the powers that be at Youtube changed the song. Thing is I found the Mc Hammer song on Youtube on another person's Youtube page, so I'm not certain of the validity of whether or not that's true.

I am under the required post limit for URLs, so all you gotta do is look up "Can't Touch This" by Mc Hammer put up by MMeathausen, or since I tried to find that one myself and couldn't going that route, you'll probably have to look up Super Freak there instead, click on the link that shows the title of "Super Freak" in white with blue background by Edgecator12, then just find the link to "Can't Touch This" by MMeathausen and you should hear that song.

Here are the lyrics as best I could tell:

I realize just the other night
Somethin' in my life just wasn't right

15 years working for the man
Trying to make a dollar just the best I can

Times are tough and money's tight
Thinkin' every minute of giving up the fight

I really need a little change of pace
If I got any shot of ever winnin' a race

Rollin' over I'm at the end of my rope
I'm running low on money and I'm all out of hope

Don't want to sink but I can't swim
No matter what I do I just can't win

Rollin' over I'm at the end of my rope
I'm running low on money and I'm all out of hope

Don't want to sink but I can't swim
No matter what I do I just can't win

I'd turned to drinkin' but it won't do no good
Can't afford a bottle even if it would

Ain't it funny when it's all goin' south
I licence you a little extra slap in the mouth

Everytime I try to stand up tall
I sit around waiting for the hammer to fall

I gotta find a way to pay my bills
But I can't take another trip up through the mill

It's only about 3:10 long, though there is a few seconds at the end that's just silence.

Please, help me find what band it is, as well as if that's the correct title.

Thank you
Lance, or, er, Musicfanatic...yeah
