The Lyrics

They don’t roll in dough like some others
Who helped to cause the 0-8 hell
And don’t know that kind in their world
Some folks broke; they’re doing swell

Crew tellin’ us the things they’re gonna do for us
Their depredations fill many folks with disgust

Takin’ over the Street…

With a message for these others
Who have way more than their share
Their actions have many tethered
Tied in poverty’s despair

Street crew tellin’ us the things they’re gonna do for us
So some folks say “Enough!” because they are nonplussed

Takin’ over the Street
Those who ain’t enjoyed the treats
Of those who rule on the Street
And the D.C. creeps who bleat

Street crew tellin’ us the things they’re gonna do for us
Like D.C. pol pals whom they give a sphincter buss

Takin’ over the Street
Those who ain’t enjoyed treats
Of those who rule the Street
Creeps at whose seat pols eat

Pol - You have a perspective different than mine, but this is quite nicely expressed. Now if only BOTH sides could be as civil and appreciative as we are. ;D

Thanks Ribber. Your take's different, and very good.
