Living in this era of the brave and free
Brings back the days of Viet Nam to me
Billionaires slyer than the Viet Cong
Sneaking through our wire every night long
Sneaking through our wire
Sneaking through our wire
Creeping through our wire

They brewing something special up for you & me
On their magic stove of better days to be
But they’re busy little schemes to go tax free
Will leave the rest of us living in poverty


Parents are expensive, children too
On my last tank of gas what am I to do
Can’t pay the rent, can’t work four jobs
Can’t go out to eat I’m just an average slob
I’m just an average slob

In great again America
Things are getting kind of small
Teach our kids to read the signs
Or else we’re bound for a fall
In the streets of every city
‘Round the farm and the village square
Working men and women
Hoping we’ll get lucky
Become a billionaire
Maybe become president
