The Lyrics

They took the good jobs from the cities;
Hatched a evil plan for the right wing way.
And they never lost one minute of sleep
Worrying 'bout the way things should have been

Big wigs keep more earnings.
Be wary of their yearnings.
They sold us... sold us... sold us down the river.

We cleaned a lot of dumps in Memphis.
Dredged a lot of crap down in New Orleans.
But the G.O.P. has cut the EPA.
They would rather talk about welfare queens.

Big wigs keep more earnings.
Be wary of their yearnings.
They sold us... sold us... sold us down the river

(instrumental solo)

They sold us... sold us... sold us down the river

When you've been sold down the river,
Bet you're gonna find no reason to live.
You will have to worry where to find some money
G.O.P. are happy to take, not give

Big wigs keep more earnings
Be wary of their yearnings
They sold us... sold us... sold us down the river.

Big wigs keep more earnings
Be wary of their yearnings
They sold us... sold us... sold us down the river.
