They Call Us The Working Class Lyrics

I was workin' in a factory
On the edge of town.
The company moved to Mexico.
They closed the factory down.
My next door neighbor,
He got a PHD.
Now he's in the unemployment line
Standing next to me.

Down on the corner,
They are boarding up the store.
They call us the working class,
But we ain't working,
we ain't working anymore!
We ain't working no more...

People losing their houses,
They got no place to go.
But there's a million dollar bonus,
For the local CEO.
They're giving all the money
To the brokers and the banks
I asked them for just a little bit.
They said : "thanks, but no thanks"

This morning the boss men
He showed me the door.
They call us the working class,
But we ain't working,
we ain't working anymore!
We ain't working no more...

(guitar solo)

They got a stimulus package
They say that's what it has to be
Is it stimulating you?
It sure ain't stimulating me.
They are handing out money
More every day.
I'm still waiting for my cut.
But nothing ever comes my way

Lately I've been wondering.
What I was working for.
They call us the working class,
But we ain't working,
we ain't working anymore!
We ain't working no more...
We ain't working no more
We ain't working no more
