The Lyrics

Singin' the Middle Class blues but knowin' who to choose!!!
Our world is changing
in so many ways
I don't know who
to really vote for
We’re barely surviving
Middle Class is going
from strugglin’ to poor

I was thinking that
maybe we’ve been betrayed
By “Father of Lies”
“real change”? No way!
Just a con
who keeps traveling
Leading America astray

Been played. We all have been played
Been played

It's hard to bring real change
When B.O.’s proud
and vain
And cold (hearted)

To lift US up,
you gotta show you’re tough
To show you‘re tough,
you gotta play rough
But all you did was spend, spend (so much)!

On bail-outs, and hand-outs to Wall St. & GM!!!

Middle Class in despair
We’re all victims
Need protecting (but)
Mitt Romney you condemn
2012, economy’s a mess
You let it fall apart,
you and your Demmy friends

Hope your first term comes to an end

Been played. We all have been played
Been played

Obama’s an evil man…

Well, let's see - this site had Tong, and Tong-Lite. Guess I'll have to dub thee Anti-Tong.

Here's hoping the vote in November forces Tong out of hibernation.
