(trad., aka The Good Boy)

I have led a good life full of peace and quiet,
Now I shall have an old age full of rum and riot;
Yes, I have been a good boy, careful and artistic;
Now I shall have an old age, coarse and anarchistic.

Once I paid my taxes and followed every rule;
Banker, boss, and bureaucrat thought me a willing tool;
I voted Democratic and gave the church its due;
Now all those swine will have to find some other chump to screw.

Of interest, banks and credit, insurance, tax and rent,
Of lawyers, agents, generals and clerics I repent.
With this cruel corporations and scorn for those elected,
I shall be an old bum, loved but unrespected.

Oh we shall all be old bums, loved but unrespected.
