about

Hey Mr. Newsman won’t you tell me who to blame
The teleprompter knows just what to say
Please make it easy, just tell me who to hate
I’d look it up but thinking hurts my brain

Can you tell me what’s going on downtown
I hear there’s people waving signs around
“What do they want, well the answer it can’t be found”
“Now will you kindly put your eyes back on the ground”

Hey Mr. Banker what happened to my 401K
It seems it’s dried up and gone away
“Well we screwed up but someone else should pay”
“Now get a job and work till your dying day”

Hey police man why you breathing down my neck
I’m just trying to say my country is a wreck
Ain’t I the one you swore to serve and protect
“I’m sorry son, but I need my next paycheck”

Hey there neighbor tell me why should we fight
Or stand proudly on the left side or the right
Cause no matter who wins on election night
The real kings are safely out of sight

Now get ready cause we’ve got some work to do
And we ain’t gonna stop until we’re through
The things I want, well they’re the same things that you want too
We really ain’t that different, me and you
