The Lyrics

Some Pepper for that meal.
Each Meal $64

Halliburton's got us by the hairs,
Has for years, somehow?!!
Pentagon keeps sending them a valentine
Worth 8 billion, or is it 9?
They're gouging out a factor of four.
Do we show them the door?
No, they still feed us,
And they still bleed us—
Each meal, $64.
They're still bolder, too.
We're afraid to say the word:
"We won't stay with you."
They should be handy, changing a fuse,
When the lights are gone
(As they often are).
Even better, you'd think, at putting out fires. . .
Sunday subs—thousand-a-day hires.
Being the warden; they fill all needs,
Charging more and more.
As they still feed us
And they still bleed us,
Each meal, $64.
In the summer, you would think that charges would be kinda light,
But let's get this clear:
They bill "shrimp" for MREs.
New chief faces the old—
Gets down on his knees.
When someone asks, they hand out a line:
"We do all for you."
It's the opposite of what they mean to say:
"Our sins waste your money each day.
Give us more and we'll fill out a form,
Then charge you yet more."
And they still feed us,
And they still bleed us,
Each meal, $64.
