A friend came up to me
and she said, "Why's it always got to be
a sad sad song
someone's falling apart.
There's always not enough money and too much heart."
and right away I could see
that sometimes how it seemed
that I don't want just be a bitch
and I don't want to just hate on rich folks
but that's kind of how we have our fun
still just for her this is a positive one

I like the bill of rights and I like to ride my bicycle
and everybody gets a little piece of the pie
yeah everybody gets a little piece of the pie

I like to go that extra mile to turn your frown into a smile
and everybody gets a little piece of the pie
yeah everybody gets a little piece of the pie

I enjoy speaking my mind and blaring records late at night
and everybody gets a little piece of the pie
yeah everybody gets a little piece of the pie

I just want to drink some whiskey and hang with good company
and everybody gets a little piece of the pie
yeah everybody gets a little piece of the pie

For the rest of our lives we'll probably work for someone else
So just tonight we are having a party

Here's to Montrose Beach and Chicago Public Library
and everybody gets a little piece of the pie
yeah everybody gets a little piece of the pie

I like not having to worry about rationed electricity
and everybody gets a little piece of the pie
yeah everybody gets a little piece of the pie

And access to uncensored news, cheap booze, Oh America
and everybody gets a little piece of the pie
yeah everybody gets a little piece of the pie

Simple pleasures in
Simple pleasures in America
Simple pleasures in
Simple pleasures in America
