The New World Lyrics

"Honest to goodness
The bars weren't open this morning
They must have been voting for a new president or something
Do you have a quarter?"

I said yes because I did,

"Honest to goodness
The tears have been falling
All over the country's face."

It was better before
Before they voted for what's-his-name
This was supposed to be the new world

Flint, Ford, Auto, Mobile, Alabama,
Windshield wipers, Buffalo, New York, Gary, Indiana
Don't forget the Motor City
This was supposed to be the new world

All we need is money
Just give us what you can spare
Twenty or thirty pounds of potatoes
Or 20 or 30 beers
A turkey on Thanksgiving
Like alms for the poor
All we need are the necessities and more

It was better before
before they voted for what's-his-name
This was supposed to be the new world

Don't forget the Motor City
This was supposed to be the new world
(REPEAT)
