about

i think John Stewart and Steven Colbert would like this one.

lyrics

“It’s been a helluva time for most folks I know –
They either laid off or payin on debts they owe –
Could tell ‘em it’s gone get better, that it’s life –
That Obamanomics and a promise gonna make it right –
But they ain’t hearin it, cuz when it rains it pours –
Bailed out Detroit for cars we can’t afford –
Gave the banks bonus money now instead of putting the onus on the ivy dummies who loaned it out funny style –
Pointin fingers at Bush, who pointed them Clinton –
How bout you politicians shut up and listen –
Invest a trillion in the people, books, schools –
Educate the kids, equip ‘em with the tools –
If future is tech, ship fruit to Brazil – (yeah)
We’re smart enough to see this here is for real – (yeah)
Got beef with the system, not my people in it – (yeah)
With God as my witness, we will not be victims” (yeah)
