The Lyrics

Great Dependent (To Great Pretender)

By Alan Friedman

Oh yes, I'm the great dependent
Although I am a college grad
A three-point-five cume
Got me my old room
Back at home with mom and with dad.

Oh yes, I'm the great dependent
Coming home worried me I'll confess,
But I was amazed
How mom cried for days,
Just happy to see me I guess.

My college life was grand and oh so nice
(Parents): About 85 grand to be more precise.

Oh yes, I'm the great dependent
I'm blaming the economy,
Otherwise, yes indeed
I know there'd be a need
For a bachelor in art history,
Won't somebody please hire me
(Parents): Hire our kid, please.
