The Lyrics

When you see a smile on my face
That’s because I know we’re not defeated
But when it comes down to the country
The budget not morale are depleted

So please let my optimism
Shine on us through a prism
It’s time to move on, I can’t wait to move on
I feel like a new era has begun
Once again it is time to have fun ooh yeah

CHORUS:
When our house is not foreclosed
We know that we have survived
Eight years of this clown in despair we won’t drown
Oh amen halleluiah oh amen halleluiah

Why was gas four dollars a gallon?
Corporate greed is the only reason
And when I got my stimulus check
Taxes ate it up and I think it’s treason
But don't let their lies convince you
Their promises will come true
Cos we have been burned, oh we have been burned
Look we’re broke because we have been burned
Wish I could tell you what I’ve learned ...

CHORUS
When our house is not foreclosed
We know that we have survived
Eight years of this clown in despair we won’t drown
Oh amen halleluiah, oh amen halleluiah

It feels like I just bathed
My credit rating is unscathed
Smiling in the crowd I try
I am so glad we have survived
Eight years of this clown
In despair we won’t drown, amen halleluiah
When you see a smile on my face
I know we’re not defeated
Morale is not depleted
Don't let this smile I wear
Make you think that I don't dare
Cos I am still mad
