The Lyrics

Times is hard....
The boomers are all lining up to retire and we’re busted.
Big Business is rolling in cash but won’t hire, so we’re busted.
The poor have no money, the rich just won’t pay,
The national debt’s getting bigger each day,
Pretty soon even China will turn us away ‘cause we’re busted.

We’d like to believe that it really ain’t so, but we’re busted.
The ones with the millions won’t part with the dough so we’re busted.
Obama says there ain't a thing he can do,
The Congress and Senate are both useless too,
And now they’re all turning and looking at you 'cause we’re busted.

Well, I am no flake, but a lot can go wrong when you’re busted.
The last of my poor unemployment is gone and I'm busted.
I can’t pay my mortgage, my car fell apart,
Me and my family got to pack up a cart,
And move to the dumpster behind the Kmart ‘cause we’re busted...

We’re broke, no bread, I mean like nothing...
