about

It's the state of the nation, stupid.

lyrics

There was how long it was...
Fifteen years....
There was how long it was...

Fifteen years and they let me go.
Not a kiss, not a wish, a golden handshake,
That's the way it goes.
No sooner than it hit the water cooler,
Seemed like everybody know.

These creeps slinking down the Wall Street,
Made some moves, that we never knew,
Trimmin' jobs from me and you.
All the while they fly frequent flyer miles
In a high-toned style.

Mama,
Feels like the end of days.
Fall down on my knees and say.
Nothing in my pocket,
Better start walking,
Better start walking away.

My friend Juan commutes each summer
In a Hummer with his kids and his wife
She's a stunner, oh and his brother.
Family matters when La Migre comes.
They scatter working all day in the hot, hot sun.

Mama,
Feels like the end of days.
Fall down on my knees and say.
Nothing in my pocket,
Better start walking,
Better start walking away.

I've been reading 'bout this and that,
Folks been nervous as a hot tin roof
On the back of an alley cat.

Mama,
Feels like the end of days.
Fall down on my knees and say.
Nothing in my pocket,
Better start walking,
Better start walking away.

There was how long it was...
