Well I live on this Planet
that whirls around out in space
and they tell me that I am Member
of somthing they call the Human Race.
And I reside here in America
but I dont know whats going on
and every time I ask some one
They are busy or else on the phone.
And the Politicians are all telling us lies
while they try real hard to get rich
and theres no jobs to be found
no where around,not even at digging a ditch!
The Banks they are all closing down
but I'm told that every things fine
meanwhile they are foreclosing
upon this old house of mine.
And Gas it is five dollars now
and the jobs have all gone over seas
and the wars they go on and on
and no one listens to me.
The Democrats and Republicans
are both trying each to up stage
they want to elect a new President
and the Tea Party does nothing but rage.
And the bad news goes on and on
and it gets worse with each passing day
and I can hardly wait till tomorrow
to hear what they have to say.
Yes I live here in America
but I dont know whats going on
and each time i ask some one that question
they are busy or else on the phone.
Bob Mitchum
