The Lyrics

"the good wife" is a sarcastic reference to Hillary
These are scary times
Dubya's rulin' the world like he owns it
And the new guys running
Can't we have leaders with a brain like we used to?
So run
And hide
Too late to front
"The good wife"
Obscure
Your rights
Restrained
The good life

Oooooohhh... Arrogantly wasted
Oooooohhh... Arrogantly wasted

Look at all the crimes
Dubya's screwin' the world and he knows it
Making up some lies
Like the old economics of voodoo
So run
And hide
We front
The world's strife
Unsure
Your rights
They taint
The good life

Oooooohhh... Arrogantly wasted
Oooooohhh... Arrogantly wasted

Look at all the signs
Terror's harmin' the world that we've sown it
Well, we've walked the line
We don't have freedom in our fame like we used to
So run
And hide
We want
A good knife
Secure
Your rights
Obtain
The good life

Oooooohhh... Arrogantly wasted

[3x]
(Oooooohhh...)
And for your rights
It will be curtains
If you don't fight
(Arrogantly wasted)

That's right, that's right...

You gotta fight
To keep your rights

And for your rights
It will be curtains
If you don't fight

This time, this time...
(government got hasty)

[fade out with more adlibbing]

Very politically correct

Thanks, AFW and Alvin :)

DKTOS, but what alvin and AFW said... the "good wife" would probably be just as bad in her own way.
TJC - August 20, 2007 - Report this comment
Nice work! Is this one of their newer (post-TV show) songs?
MrMacphisto - August 20, 2007 - Report this comment
Tommy, thanks for the vote. I'm no fan of Hillary, but it would be hard for her to do worse than Bush. I just hope Obama or Edwards gets in there instead. TJC, thanks also for your vote, and no, this song came out in 1997 right before Michael Hutchence died.

A great message to one of INXSs lesser known tunes. Great stuff, mac. 555
