The Lyrics

Apparently, there are two versions of this OS, the long version of which was also in the MTV/Paramount film "Beavis & Butt-Head Do America". I am doing the short version and added lines after each verse... FYI
Please employ us, let jobs grow
Because we can’t wait anymore
And please undo this mess we’re in
Can’t face a return to Recession!

Heartache, despair, and depression

Been unemployed for four long years
Crowds facing all their worst-case fears
Promise of “change” that we’d been told
A campaign slogan that we were sold

In ’08 was bold… but never took hold

Please do fix this economy
We are NOT a Third World country!
To ignore our lives would be a sin.
Since we re-elected you once again!!!

Just WHEN does true growth really begin???*
* Most would say around 5%, not 1.4-2%!!!
