The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)
Send him back to Crawford!
He ain't jerkin us no more!
My job done left,
An' took all the retirement I was Workin' for.
You better not try to stand in my Way,
As I push him out the door.
Send him back to Crawford!
He ain't jerkin' us no more!

I've been workin' for this country,
For nigh on fifteen years.
Now this time, I watch my taxes,
Support his Millionaires
I've seen a lot of my work plans die,
Still Got a lot of bills to pay.
I'd give the shirt right off of my back,
If someone had the guts to say:

Send him back to Crawford!
He ain't jerkin' us no more!
My job done left,
An' took all the retirement I was workin' for.
You better not try to stand in my way,
As I push him out the door.
Send him back to Crawford!
He ain't jerkin' us no more!

Well, that VP, he's a regular con,
And his boss is a fool.
Got a brand new flat-top carrier,
But no money for a school.
One of these days, we're gonna blow our tops,
And Dubya, he's gonna pay.
Lord, I can't wait to see their faces,
When someone gets the nerve to say:

Send him back to Crawford!
He ain't jerkin' us no more!
My job done left,
An' took all the retirement I was workin' for.
You better not try to stand in my way,
As I push him out the door.
Send him back to Crawford!
He ain't jerkin' us no more!

Send him back to Crawford!

(instrumental ending)

I've heard of "the wisdom of Solomon," but this one takes the cake, and burns down the bakery too! (Don't expect Georgie to send you disaster relief, though!)
