i've worked hard all my life
but now I am thinking,
that i feel like a Rat
on a ship that is sinking.

the Government is in ruins
and cant make up it's mind,
this country wont sink
but it shows all the signs,

of a ship thats in trouble
or at least in distress
and if I were it's captain
i'd send out a loud S.O.S

but dont listen to me
It might burst your bubble
but I can see plainly that
we are all in big trouble.
Bob Mitchum
