i was the one
the favorite son-in-law
i was on track
to be behind the desk

and i could pretend
i'd be the only one
to solve the new
energy crisis

and i could report the facts
and tell them all to relax
everyone's so in love
with the trends
even though we know
we're trading in euro's
i can assume the law
is on our side

well all of the great artists are dead for sure
it's entertainment for all and that's all we want
though we all know this is a gilded age
the new king's court is in your home

we can't deny the trends
there's nothing to defend
ignore your neighbors
on all sides
i won't watch the wars
it's easy to ignore
as long as i am still
the favorite son-in-law
