The Lyrics

I really hate these bums, enough to make me wanna holler
Wipe out these bums on the street, hey wash-a-win-shield for a dollar
Every time I'm-a out lately, It's a big debate
The bum say "Your dime sir, it's been weeks since I ate"
Hard times a funder is what they have to do
I just can't endure all these bummertime dudes

Didja Mom and Pappa teach you how to work to earn some money?
But you'd rather have my credit card and have a super bum day
Well I told the bums to work or they ain't gettin' dick
Hard times a funder is what they have to do
I just can't endure all these bummertime dudes

I wish these geeks would take a permanent vacation
Make 'em all the problem of the United Nations
Well that is progress man, get the UN vote
Said they'd like to help us but their charter's rewrote
Hard times a funder is what they have to do
I just can't endure all these bummertime dudes

Maybe you can hire them yourself, if for nothing else, to teach you about Eddie Cochran, who wrote the song in 1958, another year of Republican recession.

What do you have, Mike, a republican recession calendar? I know you are not old enough to remember 1958. That was the last year of the Lincoln wheat back pennies. :D
