The Lyrics

Government Money,
Comes right in the mail
It saves us from sinkin'
But we just barely sail
Get Medicaid healthcare
And foodstamps for food..
There's seventeen kids,
ADC for the brood..

A government project
Low rent housing home
Summer's are scorchin'
The winter's are Nome..
Grab snacks at the mission,
There's no doggie bags
To keep track of children,
We stick on name tags..

Sis walks the corner
Each night turnin' tricks
It helps with Time Warner
And HBO flicks..
Bo Junior panhandles
Begs dollars for weed
Just a few nickle bags
But it eases our need..

Government Money
Turns up in the mail
It saves us from sinkin'
But we just barely sail..
Get Medicaid healthcare
And foodstamps for food
Raise seventeen kids,
ADC for the brood..

Raise seventeen kids,
ADC for the brood..

I get Social Security Disability benefits from an on-the-job injury, and this parody was a good ode to monetary government handouts. 5s.

Very well expressed, AFW. All government entitlements are well intentioned; but the more the government makes them available, the more we want.
