They need more green to fill in the holes of democracy. I need relief, they blame it all on the economy. Our country was cruising, we were doing great Then they started fucking with
the interest rates. I want Greenspan's head on a silver plate. What's the going rate on amber waves of grain? There's a man on the corner who does have any arms So I toss a few pennies in his cup. Because a penny today is even less tomorrow. There's no chance that I'm ever gonna catch up. I need relief, a little bit more than the check that George gave me. They're giving you the pink slip they are showing you the door, You got no health insurance we're in need of a reform here's a bone to hold you over in the form of tax rebate. I'll do my best not to spend it all in one place.

    General CommentWhat a great response to our slowly decaying economy. I love the fun yet fierce way Richie attacks the subject matter. "Greenspan's head on a silver plate." Funny, but we all know there's truth to it.
