"Honest to goodness The bars weren't open this morning...

They must have been voting for a new president or something Do you have a quarter?" I said yes because I did, "Honest to goodness The tears have been falling All over the country's face."

It was better before Before they voted for what's-his-name This was supposed to be the new world Flint, Ford, Auto, Mobile, Alabama, Windshield wipers, Buffalo, New York, Gary, Indiana Don't forget the Motor City This was supposed to be the new world

All we need is money Just give us what you can spare Twenty or thirty pounds of potatoes Or 20 or 30 beers

A turkey on Thanksgiving Like alms for the poor All we need are the necessities and more It was better before before they voted for what's-his-name

This was supposed to be the new world"
